hey guys

I was reading some recipes for homemade weight gainers shakes, and I came across one with canola oil ( 2 tablespoons )

wtf is that for?? isn't that just all calories from fat or sugar?
anyways does it have any important nutrients that are good for bb? thanks in advance guys

Canola oil is a source of essential fatty acids (EFA's)... AKA Vitamin F. Yes, your body needs them. Some people consider EFA's to be the most common nutrient deficiency in america.

Flax oil, olive oil, fish oil, nuts and seeds are other good sources.

so it is a good idea to add 2 spoons of canola oil to my weight gainer shake?

Yes, or flax or olive oil.
