Avocado oil is a hidden treasure. Eating avocados confers numerous health benefits. Although the nutritional value of avocado oil is similar to that of olive oil, avocado oil is lighter and lacks the bitter taste of olive oil. Because of this, it is a good choice for salad dressings or for use as a condiment. It is also a healthy alternative. Research has shown that when added to salads, both fresh avocado and avocado oil facilitate the absorption of carotenoid antioxidants. Furthermore, consuming avocados is good for your heart, and helps to regulate blood sugar levels. The antioxidants in avocados help in preventing cancer. Eating salads containing avocados or avocado oil with all their good vitamins and nutrients provides your skin with long-term benefits. In other words, whether you apply avocado oil topically or eat it as a salad dressing, either way, it will do wonders for your skin.
