The benefits of avocado oil are delivered from its rich fatty acids and Vitamins. Nutritionally, avocado oil ranks comparably to olive oil with a copious amount of monounsaturated and polyunsaturated fatty acids. It is also loaded with proteins, lecithin, beta-carotene and vitamins A, D and E.

Monounsaturated fatty acids are usually found in plant products such as avocados and olives and their oils. The monounsaturated fatty acids can lower the bad cholesterol and increase the good cholesterol.

The binding of these antioxidants to your blood vessel lining also makes your vessel wall stronger and more flexible so that they respond better to sudden changes of blood pressure.
