Avocado Oil’s Benefits for Our Aging Population
Let’s face it. None of us are getting any younger, and how we treat our bodies and what we fuel them with becomes increasingly important over time. With an aging population over the world as never before in history, serious changes have been made in just about every industry, most of all healthcare, to accommodate this evolving dynamic.
While many rely on an increasingly pressured healthcare system to provide for all of their ills, preventative maintenance is one of the best things that you can do for yourself to not only enjoy a higher quality of life and keep your youthfulness longer, but also reduce some of the pressure on both yourself and the healthcare system.
Avocado Oil—A Hearty Oil!
Okay, so maybe that’s a bit of an exaggeration, but it does have a LOT of properties which it could at least qualify for the contest! One great feature of consuming avocado oil is that it helps to lower LDL (the bad) cholesterol, raise HDL (the good), lower blood triglycerides and lower blood pressure.
The antioxidants in avocado oil also neutralize free radicals in the body, reducing oxidative stress, lowering your risk of type 2 diabetes and further lowering your risk of heart disease! Considering heart disease is the number one killer in Western societies, those are some great health benefits!
Nature’s Fountain of Youth
Arthritis is a super bummer. In the U.S. population, nearly 30% of people aged 45 and over have diagnosed arthritis, and that number jumps to 50% at age 65! Avocado oil has been shown to reduce pain and stiffness associated with arthritis. Every little bit helps!
Avocado oil, when used in creams and balms, also has the interesting effect of improving the speed and efficacy of wound healing, and improving the elasticity of the skin. This helps reduce wrinkles, and keeps the skin feeling and looking youthful longer.
It can also help prevent or reduce gum disease, by helping to block the IL1B protein, which is the main driver of periodontal disease and destructor of gum tissue. Having a healthy mouth and strong gums and teeth is another way to keep that amazing smile for a long time!
An Eater’s Best Friend
We all have to eat. But not all of the things we consume are good for us, and for those that are, we don’t always reap the benefits. If your system isn’t super optimal (and for most of the population it isn’t), you aren’t getting all of the nutrients you should out of the food you eat. Certain nutrients need other compounds to absorb more effectively. For example, carotenoid antioxidants, which are excellent for your body, are absorbed between 4 and 17 times more effectively in the presence of good fatty acids, exactly the same kind of fatty acids found in quality avocado oil.
For an Aging Population, Stay Healthy Longer!
Avocado oil obviously has great benefits for an aging population, though it’s not just for those with gray hair! The earlier you start with this wonderful oil, the longer you will have to enjoy its benefits!
Just remember, a quality oil is necessary though, as some oils don’t use the right process or quality of fruits for you to gain the full benefits. For example, Ava Jane’s Avocado Oil is made from the highest quality fruits in the highest quality extraction process available. This brings the benefits of the best fruits to you in a concentrated form. What could be better?
Avocado oil is truly a wonder of nature, and can really help your health and quality of life as you age. Incorporate Ava Jane’s Avocado Oil into your daily routine today and reap the benefits!
