According to researchers at the University of Illinois, Oleate - the fat found in the golden liquid - could help a diseased heart pump blood more effectively and use body fat as fuel, however, the study also found that animal fats, found in butter made make heart disease worse.

Scientists made their findings based on previous studies which show that a healthy heart absorbs fat to keep pumping, but if damaged the muscle can no longer process or store far - starving it of energy, meaning that the heart is unable to work hard enough, and toxic fat deposits are left to clog up arteries and they believe that oleate helps the body produce enzymes which break down fat so the heart is once again able to absorb it.

Douglas Lewandowski of the University of Illinois in Chicago said that these genes are often suppressed in failing hearts, so the fact that they can restore beneficial gene expression, as well as more balanced fat metabolism, plus reduce toxic fat, is just by supplying hearts with oleate is a very exciting finding.

The study was published in the journal 'Circulation'.
