If you want healthy, hydrated skin, support heart health, nourish your digestion and boost your immune system you need to add extra virgin avocado oil into your diet.
Studies have found avocado oil benefits to include the prevention of the development of diabetes, high cholesterol, high triglyceride levels, and obesity. (1)
Extra virgin avocado oil is one of the most nutritionally beneficial and versatile oils you can use. It's heat stable, so it's wonderful for cooking as well as in salads! When choosing an avocado oil I always recommend looking for one that's extra-virgin and cold-pressed. I personally love Grove Extra Virgin Cold Pressed Avocado Oil and I've have been using it on a daily basis, here at The Healthy Chef.
The pure oil has a mild, slightly buttery flavour with a hint of fresh avocado, complementing the natural aromatics in my recipes without overwhelming the taste.
With (on average) 16 avocados in every bottle of Grove Extra Virgin Avocado Oil - it is truly pure goodness in a bottle!
Here are are my 5 reasons for making the switch to Grove Extra Virgin Avocado Oil:
1. Packed with health benefits.
Avocado oil is brimming with beneficial mono-unsaturated fats, vitamins and minerals, making it an all-round heart-healthy cooking oil to support your health and wellbeing. In fact studies have shown that Avocado oil lowers blood pressure + cholesterol, enhances the bodies absorption of other important nutrients and may even reduce the symptoms of arthritis.
Avocado oil has been shown in studies to lower blood pressure, help reduce cholesterol, enhance the absorption of other important nutrients and even to reduce the symptoms of arthritis.
2. Versatility + Taste.
Grove Extra Virgin Avocado Oil has a gorgeous flavour profile that lends itself to a huge variety of dishes. It's great drizzled over salads, vegetables or fish. Avocado oil has a high smoke point, so it can also be used in high heat cooking. You can use it for pan-frying, baking, roasting, marinating and more.

3. Improves skin health.
The healthy mono-unsaturated fats in avocado oil help keep my skin naturally hydrated and the high antioxidant content helps to neutralise free radical damage, so it keeps my skin feeling and looking great! Studies also show that avocado oil has also been used in the treatment of psoriasis.
4. Enhances absorption of other nutrients.
Studies show that the addition of avocado oil to a meal can boost the absorption of carotenoids (health-promoting antioxidants) in food, particularly plant foods. That's why I love to drizzle it over my daily salads and vegetables.
5. Digestive friendly.
The healthy fats in avocado oil are essential for digestion and nutrient absorption because they nourish the lining of the gut. Plus, it's low FODMAP - unlike whole avocados - making it the perfect choice for those with digestive issues. You can even add a spoonful to your morning smoothie, like I do!
