Cold Pressed Avocado Oil
AVOCADO OIL (unrefined) - Containing a greater portion of the avocado fruit; this oil is a bit darker and heavier than our refined avocado oil with an even greater therapeutic quality.
Avocado oil is a form of edible oil derived from the fresh pulp of avocado fruit. It has a rich, lingering flavor of avocados and the aroma of artichokes and celery. It is used for both cooking and cosmetic purposes. Loaded with proteins, lecithin, beta-carotene and vitamins A, C and E, avocado oil provides various health advantages. The oil is often compared to olive oil for its apparently healthy ratio of saturated and unsaturated fats. Though the benefits of avocado oil outweigh those of extra-virgin olive oil, the use of oil is more limited. The oil is rich in monounsaturated fats, which are found only in plant products such as avocados and olive and their oils.
Since avocado oil contains plenty of vitamins and minerals, it helps people suffering from malnutrition. Rich in nutrients, it is beneficial for male impotency, constipation, insomnia, nervousness and ulcers. It is useful in the inflamed conditions of the mucous membranes, especially stomach, small intestine and colon.
Extremely rich in monounsaturated oleic acid (OA), avocado oil protects the cardiovascular system. It reduces blood concentration of low density lipoproteins (LDL) and triglyceride, hence lowering the potential for plaque formation and vessel blockage. Containing essential fatty acids and vitamin E, avocado oil protects blood vessels by binding and removing free radicals and cholesterol deposits.
Avocado oil contains alpha linolenic acid (ALA), which is known to suppress tumor growth in breast and colon cancers. It is also effective in preventing and treating skin and prostate cancer. Avocado oil has strong antibacterial and anti-inflammatory properties that help in the faster healing of cuts and wounds, preventing scarring, acne breakouts and dermatitis. Consumption as well as topical application of avocado oil effectively reduces the appearance of age spots, fine lines and wrinkles.
Applying avocado oil on hair and skin prevents the loss of moisture due to wind and climate damage. Avocado oil consumption boosts metabolism thus, helping in maintaining the body weight. It is an extremely good moisturizing and nourishing compound that helps in the regeneration and rejuvenation of the skin. Being easily absorbed in the skin, avocado oil relieves the dryness and itching of psoriasis and eczema.
