The Amazing Oil of Avocado
The Avocado's natural monounsaturated fat is known for its power to lower blood-pressure. This beneficial lipid is pressed from the luscious green fruit to make avocado oil.
Avocado oil helps to alleviate arthritis.
Psoriasis is treated successfully in France with avocado oil; it is especially effective when incorporated into vitamin B-12 skin-cream.
Avocado oil's high monounsaturated oleic acid content helps to improve general heart-health and lower blood-cholesterol.
Avocado oil, with its high smoke-point, is ideal for cooking. I like to cook popcorn in it instead of coconut oil. Avocado oil is used in vinaigrette for salads. When ingested, this beneficial oil promotes the absorption of antioxidants in food.
