The Amazing Benefits of Avocado Oil

Avocado oil  has many health benefits including a high amount of antioxidants and healthy fats. While avocado oil is best known for its uses in cooking, it also could be used in skin care.

Reduces Cholesterol and Improves Heart Health

Studies found that avocado oil improves heart health, reduces blood pressure and blood cholesterol levels. It is very effective in increasing the good cholesterol, HDL.

Reduces Kidney Damage in People with Type 2 Diabetes

A 2017 study found that avocado oil could reduce the oxidative damage that causes kidney damage in people with type 2 diabetes. It is due to the oleic acid, a healthy fat, which is the primary component of the avocado oil.

Lowers the Risk of Cancers and Autoimmune Diseases

Oleic acid is known for its ability to lower the risk of developing some cancers and prevents the outbreak of some autoimmune diseases. It speeds up cell regeneration to promote healing, and aids in eliminating microbial infections and reducing inflammation throughout the body.

Contains High Amount of Antioxidant that has Benefits for The Eyes

Lutein is an antioxidant found in avocado oil. This nutrient improves eye health and may lower the risk of age-related eye diseases. Our body doesn’t produce lutein, so we must obtain it from our diet.

Helps the Body in the Absorption of Important Nutrients

Avocado oil is a healthy fat that may increase the absorption of important nutrients found in vegetables when it is mixed with vegetables.

May Reduce the Symptoms of Arthritis

Arthritis is a disease that affects millions of people worldwide. Multiple studies have reported that a combination of avocado and soybean oil extract may relieve the symptoms of osteoarthritis. A study reported that oleic acid may help to reduce inflammation and pain associated with arthritis.

Ways to Add Avocado Oil to Your Diet

It is easy to incorporate avocado oil into your diet. It is healthy and safe to consume it cold or as a cooking oil because its fatty acids are stable at high heat.

Add to salad or Hummus. Add a to a fruit and vegetable smoothie. Use it to marinade meat for grilling. Use it in baking. Drizzle it over vegetables before cooking in an oven.

Caution: ِAvocado oil is safe to consume, but it is better to make sure you are not allergic to it. Apply a small amount of avocado oil on the skin of your arm. If you do not get any reaction within 24 hours it means you are not allergic to it.

The Amazing Benefits of Arugula

Arugula is a dark leafy green plant that is a member of the Cruciferous family like kale, cauliflower, and broccoli. Arugula originated in the Mediterranean region. Arugula is a popular salad vegetable that has a peppery taste, but it loses some of its peppery flavor when cooked.

Arugula Is Rich in Nutrition

This green vegetable is a nutrient-dense food that is high in fiber and phytochemicals that reduces the risk of cancer and heart disease. Arugula is low in calories, carbohydrate, sugar, and fat. It is rich in antioxidants, calcium, potassium and many vitamins and minerals.

Helps Improve Immune System

Arugula is full of vitamins and minerals that enhance the defenses of the body’s immune system. The body is stimulated to create white blood cells from the copper in arugula. Arugula improves the strength of the immune system number in several ways. The vitamin C in arugula is one of the best defenses for the body to seek out dangerous, inflammatory free radicals and eliminate them from the body before they can cause real damage. Arugula helps the body maintain good health by giving an extra push to the immune system.

Help with Weight Loss

Even though Arugula is nutritionally-dense, but it is low in calories. You could eat more calories and feel fuller with less food. Arugula is a great choice for a salad that has nutrients, unlike the crispy water like iceberg lettuce.

Help Digest Food Better

Arugula contains a high amount of fiber. Food high in fiber can help digest food quicker and prevent constipation. In addition, high fiber diets can reduce the risk of colon cancer and ulcerative colitis.

Helps Prevent Diabetes

Clinical research confirms that plant extracts taken from the arugula seeds help fight blood sugar fluctuations. Eating a lot of green vegetables is thought to be a natural diabetes treatment since it improves insulin responsiveness, and it is free of sugar and carbs. Arugula extract or oil is considered an effective prevention and treatment method for improving insulin response and reducing blood sugar levels. In addition, arugula is diuretic and acts to slow the absorption of sugar after eating in the stomach because it contains a high proportion of soluble fiber.

Help Protect Eyes

Arugula is an excellent source of vitamin A along with carotenoids, which is necessary for the prevention of macular degeneration and cataracts. Additionally, vitamin A deficiency could cause night blindness, and it is responsible for 250,000 to 500,000 children who become blind every year.

Reduces High Blood Pressure and Cholesterol

ِArugula contains nitrates that prevent arteriosclerosis, which makes blood flow naturally without raising blood pressure. Also, studies indicate that arugula contributes to the reduction of harmful cholesterol (LDL) and triglyceride. In addition, it raises the levels of good cholesterol (HDL) in the body.

May Help Fight Cancer

ِArugula contains sulfur-containing compounds, which could inhibit the activity of cancer-causing cells. Arugula also contains a chemical that could help inactivate cancer-causing chemicals, which protect cellular DNA from damage, induce cell death in cancerous cells, and prevent tumor blood vessel formation.

Promotes Healthy Bones

Arugula may help people heal faster from bone injuries since it is an excellent source of vitamin K. Vitamin K helps promote calcium absorption and facilitates the regeneration of muscles and blood clots.

Relieves ِArthritis Pain

Arugula contains special chemical compounds, which possess anti-inflammatory properties. They suppress the production of inflammatory mediators and reduce the aches and pains associated with chronic inflammation.

May Help Fight Liver Disease

The extract of the arugula plant may improve liver function and the performance of antioxidants. The seeds and leaves of arugula can be used to protect from liver toxins. It is, therefore, necessary to take watercress leaves regularly to prevent liver disease.

Help Improve the Brain Health of Babies

Arugula is a good source of folates, a classification which includes folic acid. Folates have been found to decrease occurrences of certain mental defects in newborns.

How to use it

Raw Arugula is delicious and has a peppery flavor. It can be used as a healthy add-on topping for, sandwiches and wraps. It can be served as a salad with nothing more than tomatoes, a drizzle of extra virgin olive oil, lemon juice, and salt. It also could be added to smoothies, avocado, cheese, butter, olive oil, and other salads.

Arugula loses some of its peppery flavor when cooked. Arugula gives the main dish a delicious flavor when it is added to it. It also could be added to pasta dishes, pizza, and other dishes. It is preferable not to cook it for a long time so as not to lose its nutritional value. It is best to eat arugula fresh to maintain its many nutritional benefits.

Caution

Arugula is generally safe for consumption by healthy people. If you have any disease please see your doctor before consuming arugula frequently to treat any disease because it might harm your health.
