Add Essentials to Your Diet With Avocado Oil
Avocados aren’t just delicious, they also have serious vitamins and nutrients hiding in that soft, green flesh. Now, new research shows that avocado oil contains a significant source of CoQ10.
The research shows that Olivado cold-pressed, extra virgin avocado oils contain significant quantities of CoQ10, a much desired vitamin-like substance that has been shown to produce significant health benefits.
CoQ10, also known as “ubiquinone,”
The studies, conducted at Nutrition Institute by Dr. I. Pravst, show that Olivado avocado oils contain 123mg/L, while meat, long considered the food group containing the highest concentration of this vital element, contains only 20-40mg/kg.
Extra virgin avocado oil is one of the good oils: high in monounsaturated fats, lower in saturated fats than olive oil,as well as having a great taste. But not all avocado oils produced this significant level of CoQ10. The studies were conducted on a number of avocado oils from Mexico, South Africa and New Zealand, with the range of CoQ10 varying from 20mg/kg to 123mg/kg. The highest ranking was achieved by one particular brand, Olivado, a New Zealand based producer of high-quality edible oils.
According to Neil Albert, vice president and general manager of Olivado’s USA distribution center, it is Olivado’s proprietary process for extracting oil from the avocado which is responsible. “Most avocado oils are mass-produced and chemically refined,” says Mr. Albert. “Evidently, the process of refining, coupled with ineffective production processes, eliminates most of the CoQ10 in avocado oil.”
These results were released after a research study conducted on over 100 different vegetable oils. The study was undertaken by The Nutrition Institute of Slovenia in conjunction with Pablo de Olavide University, Seville, Spain.
