Have you tried avocado oil? We’re a household superfan!
Avocado oil is a nutrient dense oil great for cooking, skin care and digestive health. Any product to help my gut health I’m all for!
Benefits of using avocado oil:
Oleic acid - Oleic acid is a fatty acid good for the immune system and can withstand oxidation. This makes it last longer without going rancid and has the properties to withstanding high cooking temperatures.
Vitamin E - An essential vitamin for healthy skin, hair and nails. Vitamin E helps prevent against the oxidative damage caused by free-radicals (aka, STRESS.)
Digestion - Cold pressed avocado oil is rich in enzymes and healthy fats that help stimulate your body to repair itself and help to digest nutrients.
