At bVitra we use a combination of fruit and carrier oils in our wellness blends that are either backed by clinical data or have a history of traditional use to counter arthritis, assist with skin health and help relief muscular pain. These fruit and carrier oils are said to have the most important functions of anti-inflammatory, antimicrobial and pain relief properties.

The oils we use in our wellness blends are certified organic fruit and carrier oils purchased from our preferred Australain Owned Supplier.  We do this to ensure our products are crafted using ingredients that have been verified to be pure, giving us and our customers confidence in the quality and therapeutic health properties within each fruit and carrier oil.

Avocado Oil

One of the fruit oils we use in our wellness blends is Avocado oil. 

The avocado oil has been desired throughout time not only as food rich in vitamin D and potassium, but for its medicinal uses and its soothing, skin healing properties. Traditionally, the pulp from the fruit has been used as a hair pomade to stimulate hair growth and topically to hasten wound healing. Avocado has a long history of internal use as an aphrodisiac.

Avocado oil is one of few edible oils not derived from seeds; it is pressed from the fleshy pulp surrounding the avocado pit. Avocado Oil is obtained from the ripe fruits of the avocado tree and is rich in unsaturated fatty acid content. It is especially high in oleic acid (Omega-9), linoleic acid (Omega-6), dermal palmitoleic acid, potassium, and vitamins A, B1, D & E. 

Avocado oil has received prescription drug status in France because of its proven ability to counter negative effectives of arthritis.

It is clinically proven that Avocado oil can assist to improve arthritis symptoms. Arthritis is a joint disease that causes swelling and pain in the joints. It is most commonly classified as osteoarthritis or rheumatoid arthritis. Osteoarthritis occurs when cartilage between joints wears down causing inflammation and pain. This type of arthritis generally occurs in the joints we most frequently use, such as the knees, hips, spine and hands. Where as rheumatoid arthritis is caused by an autoimmune dysfunction where the white blood cells actually destroy the cartilage. 

You may wish to consider adding avocado oil as a valuable addition to an arthritis diet. It can be used raw in salads and dips or as a cooking oil. 

Avocado oil is said to be a cholesterol-lowering food due to it’s high levels of monounsaturated oleic acid content, making it a beneficial choice when it comes to the heart. Oleic acid, like other omega-9s, can help to reduce the risk of heart disease by raising levels of high-density lipoprotein (HDL), the body’s “good cholesterol.”  Some studies  have found avocado oil benefits to include the prevention of the development of diabetes, high cholesterol, high triglyceride levels, and obesity.

Avocado Oil also has an excellent hydrating effect on the skin and is highly spreadable. It penetrates well into the corneal layer of the skin due to the high content of oleic acid, and has a fantastic regenerative effect due to the skin-related fatty acids, making it very popular in anti-aging products.

Avocado Oil also helps with treating rough, flaky and dry skin. 

At bVitra we consider Avocado Oil as an excellent carrier oil choice within several of our wellness blends.
