Avocado Oil is a versatile, delicious and extremely easy to use super food staple in my kitchen. Not only does it provide the highest flash point at a fiery 520 degrees, it also adds more flavor to your dishes and delivers more nutrition out of each and every bite. With its rich nutty and buttery taste it can be a nice alternative to other oils you may be cooking with. It is also rich in belly fat busting monounsaturated fatty acids! I use Avocado oil for just about any culinary purpose including: sauteing, baking, roasting, pan-frying, popping, emulsifying, marinating, dipping and drizzling because I am very passionate about this oil and use it in my everyday life, I want to share with you some of the other health benefits you can expect from this oil on top of how much it improves the taste of your foods.
1. Relieves Eczema and Psoriasis
Avocado oil when mixed with B12 relives the symptoms of psoriasis and is even more potent than a vitamin E cream!
2. Aids in Weight Loss
Avocado oil has a high oleic acid content, and it has been said that a diet containing oleic acid can increase physical activity by 13.5% and post meal metabolism by 4.5% compared to a diet rich in saturated fats.
3. Helps Prevent and treat cancer
The oleic acid in avocado oil along with the carotenoids and vitamin E can check the growth of precancerous and cancer cells and even induce cell death in abnormal cells. The carotenoids also reduce the side effects of chemotherapy. You want to make sure you always buy the unrefined, cold-pressed, extra virgin version whether you want to cook with avocado oil or use it for your skin and hair.
4. Lowers cholesterol
Avocado oil is rich in fatty acids and it works to lower bad cholesterol and raise your good cholesterol. Avocado oil is just as effective as extra virgin olive oil.
5. Amazing hair treatment
Avocado oil is one of the best oils for your hair as it is super rich in vitamin E which is essential for maintaining healthy hair. It is also a good source of monounsaturated fats which provide your hair follicles with the nutrients they need to stimulate hair growth.
6. It supercharges other nutrients in your foods
Pairing avocado oil with certain fruits and vegetables can actually make them more nutritious. Especially the ones that contain carotenoids (phytochemicals that are thought to play a role in eye health, heart health, and cancer prevention) like lycopene and lutein which are found in tomatoes, spinach and carrots. Pairing avocado oil with these foods has been shown to increase carotenoid absorption by up to 15 times.
7. Improves Digestion
If you find that you get frequent heart burn or experience an abnormal high amount of gas and bloating on a regular basis, or if you feel tired all the time, poor digestion may be to blame. I like to add avocado oil to my food to help fix these problems. The vitamins, minerals and monounsaturated fatty acids in avocado oil all help the digestive tract to process food more efficiently. This won’t fix the problem overnight, but you will be surprised at how quickly you will begin to feel better, have more energy and may even start to lose weight as a result!
