Brief Answer:
Groundnut or olive oil

Detailed Answer:

Hello,

The oil which should be used for healthy life and heart is groundnut oil, olive oil, rice bran oil or corn oil. All these are good for health. The choice depends on your taste.

All these have less of saturated fat and more of unsaturated fat, so you can have any of these. The superiority of one over the other is not proven.

Hope I have answered your query.

All the best.
