Every Bit Organic’s Raw Certified Organic Avocado Oil comes from the lush Hinterland region of northern New South Wales. They have extracted the oil directly from the fruit (rather than from the nut) by cold-press methods. Hence it contains the highest levels of naturally occurring antioxidants and beneficial fats.
This lightly flavoured oil is high in oleic acid, monounsaturated fats and Vitamins A, E and D. It contains decent amounts of magnesium and antioxidants, which most people do not consume enough of. The fats aren’t only healthy in and of themselves but make other nutrients, particularly carotenoids, in the avocado much more bioavailable. Research has shown that avocado or avocado oil increased the absorption of carotenoids in a meal anywhere from 2.6 times to 15.3 times depending on the carotenoid.
Avocados are one of only a few natural sources of the potent compound beta-sitosterol. This powerful phytosterol positively impacts lipid and cholesterol levels in the body. There is even some research showing that beta-sitosterol may inhibit cell division of cancerous cells. The benefits of antioxidants are well documented, but avocado oil has a uniquely beneficial ability to penetrate cells down to the mitochondria and actually improve the function of the cell. This makes avocado helpful in reducing aging and helping the body fortify against illness and disease. This cold pressed avocado oil is perfect for use as a luxurious topical too! Expect nourished skin from inside out.
