Why Avocado Oil Is Superior to Most Other Oils

Avocado oil is produced from the fruit (avocado) of the avocado tree. The avocado tree (Persea americana) is a tree that is native to South Central Mexico, and the Caribbean.  It is classified as a member of the flowering plant family Lauraceae.  Avocado (also known as alligator pear) refers to the tree’s fruit, which is botanically a large berry containing a single seed.

Oil is pressed from the fleshy pulp surrounding the avocado pit, this makes it one of the few edible oils that is not derived from a seed. The pulp of the avocado produces an oil full of healthy fats, including oleic acid and essential fatty acids.

Other oils like flaxseed oil and pumpkin seed oil are very nutrient dense, but these oils cannot be used for cooking. The awesome thing about avocado oil is that it’s not only a superfood oil that can be used in uncooked items like salads and dips, but it’s also highly recommended for cooking.

When using any oil for cooking, it is of the utmost importance to consider the smoke point (this is the temperature at which the oil starts to be visibly smoking in the pan) of the oil. Even a healthy oil like olive oil becomes unhealthy after reaching its smoke point. When an oil reach there smoke point, the structure of the oil begins to break down, nutrients are lost, flavor is changed and most dangerously, compounds can be created that are damaging to your health. Avocado oil’s high smoke point (400 degrees F) make it a top choice in your kitchen every day of the week.

Avocado Oil is the healthiest oil in the Planet

  • Throughout history avocado oil has been renowned for it’s healing and regenerating properties
  • Studies indicate that it prevents Diabetes, High Cholesterol, high triglyceride, and obesity
  • Avocado Oil has received prescription drug status in France for it’s ability to reverse arthritis

Some of the Health Benefits of avocado oil are:

  1. Lowers Blood Pressure: Avocado oil is a very smart alternative when looking for natural way to lower blood pressure or to maintain a healthy blood pressure. The monounsaturated fats found in avocado oil can beneficially impact your blood pressure when used to replace saturated fat and trans fat in your diet.
  2. Improves Arthritis Symptoms: In France, ASU is an extract made from avocado and soybean oils, which has received prescription drug status as a treatment for knee and hip osteoarthritis. In Denmark, ASU is marketed as a food supplement for its anti-inflammatory effects and its ability to stimulate cartilage growth and repair. This is why I highly recommend that you add avocado oil to your arthritis diet
  3. Benefits Psoriasis & Other Skin Problems: In a 2001 study published in Dermatology, evidence was provided that a vitamin B12 cream containing avocado oil had considerable potential as a well-tolerated, long-term topical therapy for psoriasis. Psoriasis patients used the avocado oil cream for 12 weeks and showed consistent improvement throughout the study period. That avocado oil can play a vital role in a psoriasis diet especially since common treatments are often associated with a significant risk of undesirable side effects.
  4. Improve Heart Health & Lower Cholesterol: Avocado Oil is high in monounsaturated oleic acid content making it an extremely beneficial choice for lowering cholesterol and reducing the risks of coronary heart disease.
  5. Boosts Nutrient Absorption: Studies show that the addition of avocado oil to a meal can boost the absorption of carotenoids (health promoting antioxidants) in foods

Possible Side Effects of Avocado Oil

If you are allergic to avocado, then unfortunately you will have to avoid avocado oil for internal or external use. In addition, people with latex allergies can be allergic to avocado and avocado oil. Latex allergy is related to certain foods such as avocados, bananas, chestnuts, kiwis and passion fruit because these foods contain some of the same allergens found in latex. If you’re allergic to latex, then you have a greater chance of also being allergic to avocado oil, unfortunately!

In terms of interactions with other medications, avocado has been reported to decrease the effectiveness of warfarin. Warfarin, also known by the brand name Coumadin among others, is a blood thinner that is used to slow blood clotting. If you are taking any blood thinners, check with your doctor to discuss your internal intake of avocado oil.

    I love avocados, but I’ve never heard of reducing avocados to an oil before. Sounds interesting, especially the high smoke point, and that it could help with arthritis and skin problems. How much of the avocado taste is left in the oil?

    Also, about the smoke point, I’m just curious-how does one find out what the smoke point of an oil is?

    1. Hi Shana:

      Thank you so much for your feedback.  Avocado oil has a naturally creamy buttery and nutty taste to it, even though it does not include any of those ingredients.

      As far as the smoke point of oils I included a link to the information in the article and including it here as well. 

      If you have any questions or need additional information please do not hesitate to leave you comment below.

    I love avocados so why not avocado oil. I like that it has a high smoke point like coconut oil. I had no idea about the latex allergen, that’s good to know and the fact that it decreases effectiveness of Warfarin which my mom is on. This bottle looks delicious, I will check it out, thanks!!

    1. Thank you so much for your input, greatly appreciated. Please feel free to comment with your experience once you try the avocado oil.

    Well, well what the interesting discovery and great news. I never heard about avocado oil. I like this fruit (or vegetable) very much. Reading your info some questions to you. Is avocado oil for cooking or for drinking as medical fluids? Other not as a question but I just wondering about the price, only thirteen bucks for half a liter. In my country a pound of this fruit cost about five dollars. Need to make an investigation in grocery stores.

    1. Hi Andrejs: Thanks for dropping by and leaving your comment. Avocado oil is excellent for cooking and does not leave any after taste in foods.  In some European countries Avocado oil has reached a medical prescription status to treat various illnesses and it’s ingested directly from the bottle.  I use it directly as a salad dressing for my salads and it makes them taste great.

    This is an exceptional site. I learned a lot, and I mean a lot about the benefits of Avocado’s and especially about the importance of adding Avocado’s into my diet.

    After reading the entire article, I was sold on the Avocado oil. I also came to the conclusion that Avocado oil is far better than Olive oil due to the smoking point, whereas Avocado oil is superior to Olive oil.

    Overal, a very good website that I just might visit in the near future. Best of luck to you on this endeavor.

    regards.

    I use coconut oil for most of my cooking, but I just read in another article that it may not be as healthy as everyone thinks. I may consider picking up some avocado oil next time I need some cooking oil. I love avocados, so I’m sure that this oil would be great!

    1. Hi Brandi: Thanks for dropping by and leaving your comment. I’m still not convinced about the recent information about coconut oil.  I still think that the scientific proofed benefits still out weigh any negative traits.  I prefer Avocado Oil for cooking for the simple reason it does not leave any after taste in the foods as coconut oil does.  I do use plenty of coconut oil in baking since it enhances the taste rather then having after tastes.

    Awesome information and great product! I wasn’t aware of all the wonderful benefits of Avocado Oil… thanks for sharing! I have a couple questions: (1) In comparison to Coconut Oil, do you think Avocado Oil is better? (2) Or would it be good to alternate between both? (3) Any other good oils you recommend?

    1. Hi Bryce: Thank you for visiting and for your comments.  Between Coconut Oil and Avocado Oil for cooking I would recommend Avocado Oil. Both have enormes health benefits but coconut oil tends to leave an after taste in foods. That doesn’t happen with Avocado oil, it leaves no after taste. As far as alternating, I would use coconut oil mostly for baking and Avocado oil for cooking. Olive oil is another excellent oil for cooking and loaded with many health benefits as well.
