Anyone who knows me well knows I love avocado anything. So the moment I heard about avocado oil, I began learning how it could be used and its many benefits.

Avocado oil is a nutrient dense oil that should be in everyone’s cupboard. It’s great for cooking, skin care and digestive health and offers more benefits than I can list. It might just be the next coconut oil… maybe.

So what’s so great about avocado oil?

Oleic acid

The same fatty acid that makes olive oil so amazing, oleic acid is good for the immune system and can withstand oxidation much better than most oils. This makes it last longer without going rancid and better at withstanding high temperatures.

Vitamin E

An essential vitamin for healthy skin, hair and nails, vitamin E helps prevent against the oxidative damage cause by free-radicals.

Digestion

Avocado oil is great for gut health for similar reasons as avocado itself. Cold pressed avocado oil is rich in enzymes and healthy fats that help stimulate your body to repair itself.
