Nutrition and cooking experts agree that one of the most versatile and healthy oils to cook with and eat is Avocado oil.

“It’s just creamy, like an avocado,” says Lisa Howard, author of The Big Book of Healthy Cooking Oils—about how to choose the best option.

Many studies have revealed the numerous health benefits of this “superfood’ from improving arthritis symptoms to protecting against high blood pressure.

Avocado oil contains both monounsaturated and polyunsaturated fatty acids (it has one of the highest monounsaturated fat contents among cooking oils) as well as vitamin E.

Avocado oil is extracted by pressing the green, fleshy part of the fruit.

Substitute your usual cooking oils for avocado oil when using a low-heat recipe, or when looking for a salad dressing.

Here are five health benefits of cooking with avocado oil:

A cure for arthritis

Avocado oil contains Avocado Soybean Unsaponifiables – ASU (a vegetable extract), anti-inflammatory properties, according to the health coach.

Inflammation is one of the key causes of arthritis pain for both osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis patients.

ASU also reportedly has stimulatory properties for connective tissue, which could ease osteoarthritis symptoms.

Controls high blood pressure

You could maintain a healthy blood pressure by regularly using avocado oil.

Its monounsaturated fats help to stabilise blood pressure when eaten in moderation.

Replacing oils containing saturated fats with avocado oil provides you with the greatest benefit.

Lowering your blood pressure will also have a positive impact on your risk of heart disease or strokes.

Reduce psoriasis symptoms

Psoriasis patients that use a vitamin B12-rich cream, containing avocado oil, show a significant reduction in symptoms, scientists have claimed.

According to the experts from medical website Dr Axe: “Avocado oil’s ability to play a vital role in a psoriasis diet is a substantial finding for sufferers of chronic plaque psoriasis since common treatments are often associated with a significant risk of undesirable side effects.

“Research involving both animals and humans also reveals that oil from avocados can promote wound healing when used topically and can have anti-inflammatory and antioxidant effects on the skin.

“Why is avocado oil good for the skin exactly? Its rich supply of healthy fats makes it a natural moisturiser — plus it contains vitamins, such as vitamin E, that help soothe skin.”

Lower cholesterol

Avocado oil is rich in monounsaturated oleic acid, which helps to lower the amount of ‘bad’ cholesterol in your blood vessels.

Reducing your cholesterol could subsequently protect against heart disease.

Improves satiety

The oleic acid in avocado oil has been linked to an increased sensation of fullness after a meal.

Feeling fuller for longer means that you’re less likely to snack throughout the day, which helps patients to lose weight.

One downside is that it tends to be more expensive.
