Avocado oil is the oil extracted from Avocados. You may have heard that Avocado is known as Nature’s Butter. It is therefore understandable that this fruit and its oil is great for healthy glowing skin. You can purchase these oils from most larger supermarkets and health food stores. These oils are normally from South Africa, Australia and Canada where the soils is good for avocados. The oil is normally stored in an amber glass bottle to prevent light from affecting it.
The oil is very rich and you only need a tablespoon daily. It can be consumed cold, directly from the bottle. Avocado oil is incredibly amazing for the skin. You can put it on the skin to soothe itchy skin, however, it is also best consumed internally via our mouth and digestive system. Studies have shown that using avocado oil is effective in Psoriasis treatment and wound healing. However, do avoid putting avocado oil directly on any open wounds.

Dementia is on the increase and statistics show that one in three persons will get Dementia. This means the person’s brain is like scambled eggs and memory is affected greatly. We have witnessed first hand that when someone has Dementia, they may leave the gas fire on unattended whilst they sleep, putting the home at risk of being burnt down. People with Dementia do not remember where they have left their keys, wallet and car. The cost of Dementia is very expensive as each person will need at least 3 full time carers each day, each working an 8 hour shift. Caring for Dementia patients is very demanding and exhausting. One may eventually have to use up their savings or sell their home and other belongings to pay for these full time carers. Eating an avocado daily or several times a week is a cheaper remedy to preventing Dementia. You can also consume a tablespoon of the avocado oil daily.
Avocados are one of the richest fruits/vegetables that you could eat, because it contains a minimum of between 18 to 24 vitamins and minerals. It contains, for example, potassium. You get potassium in bananas, but you don’t get much else apart from the sugar. However, in an avocado, you’ve got potassium, magnesium, calcium, selenium, lutein, vitamin A, vitamin C, and so on. You also got excellent sources of Essential Fatty Acids. We need these Essential Fatty Acids regularly especially as we get older. The avocado feeds your liver. The liver breaks down the Essential Fatty Acid and the good fat goes into your brain. It feeds every part of your brain. The tubing of the nerves are lubricared and this is a very powerful tool against illnesses like Dementia, Alzheimer’s, Memory Loss and Cognitive Function.
