Create a healthy cell membrane
Transmit stimuli to the nervous system
Help absorption of vitamins in the intestines

Cushioning visceral organs and even regulating hormones.

Another aspect that makes this a very healthy cooking oil variant is its breakdown point or the temperature at which any oil smokes out all the benefits and starts producing carcinogenic compounds. Avocado oil has a very high breaking point of over 500 degrees which is significantly higher than even extra virgin olive oil. Thus even if cooked on high heat and for deep frying, this oil will not harm your body in any way.
Beautiful walnut oil which is extracted from the nutty walnut can also be one of the best inclusions in our diets. It has a beautiful roasted flavor without the inherent bitterness of the nut itself. Walnut is the biggest most essential vegetarian source of omega 3 and omega 6 fatty acids. Thus every one must derive its benefits to save themselves from:
