You probably already know that eating avocados is good for your heart but why stop there? Avocado Oil is also beneficial to your skin, hair and energy levels. Avoid the costly alternatives and use Swanson EFAs Virgin Avocado Oil to get the very best out of this famous superfood.
Unlike most oils, Swanson EFAs Virgin Avocado Oil is different. Pressed from the fruit rather than the seed of the avocado, it brings with it all the incredible therapeutic qualities of this magnificent superfood.
An edible oil pressed from the Persea americana, it can be used equally well for cooking as it can be used topically as a cosmetic treatment. It has incredibly high levels of skin penetration and absorption and has been championed repeatedly by beauty specialists.
To make most avocado oil, the avocado flesh is dried out (it is 65% water) and then extracted using solvents at a high temperature. The oil is then refined, bleached and deodorised to create the odourless oil that works magic.
Swanson EFAs Virgin Avocado Oil, much like an extra virgin olive oil, is cold pressed and so retains all of its natural qualities. This means that you can avoid the more costly and hard to source culinary oils in favour of this phenomenal all natural antioxidant.
In a world of increasing obesity, 'Fat' tends to be considered a dirty word. So knowing that 77% of the calories in avocado are fat, you might well ask why you would want anything to do with it.
Make no mistake, it is one of the fattiest plant foods on earth. In the case of Swanson EFAs Virgin Avocado Oil though that fat is something called Oleic acid. This monounsaturated fatty acid (also present in Olive Oil) has enormous health benefits.
Oleic acid is the kind of fat you have to know about. Bolstered by the presence of the antioxidant vitamin E, Swanson EFAs Virgin Avocado Oil really is the most convenient way to get your fix of this incredibly precious oil.
