Among the beneficial oils, olive and avocado
oils are touted as two of the healthiest. Olive
and avocado oil contain monounsaturated fat,
which can lower total cholesterol and low-density
lipoprotein (LDL) cholesterol in the blood by
lowering dietary and metabolic acidity.
This is a good thing.
Choosing olive or avocado oil is a bit like
choosing a good wine. There are different grades, and
some are more flavorful and offer more health
Virgin, extra-virgin or refined: Virgin and
extra-virgin olive and avocado oils tend to
be higher in polyphenols (a powerful antioxidant)
than are the more-processed, refined olive or
avocado oils. Antioxidants are considered beneficial
because they help the body rid itself of acidic
molecules or dietary and metabolic acids and minimize
harmful cellular acidic inflammation.
A recent study comparing virgin oil, refined oil,
and the combination of both found that virgin oil
appears to have greater heart-health benefits.
Here are some things to consider when purchasing
olive and/or avocado oils:
Freshness: The fresher the oil, the greater the
antioxidant properties. Quality olive or avocado
oils generally include a packaging date. At purchase,
it should be no more than one year old.
Price/flavor: Olive and avocado oils run the gamut
in prices. Shoppers should invest in the pricier
and more flavorful green virgin or extra-virgin oils
for use in salad dressing or drizzling over salads
or side dishes. You can also use these oils in
the Doc Broc Avocado Shake.
Storage: Green Olive and avocado oils have a shelf
life of about six to twelve months. Storage in a
cool dark place is best.

The following is an unsolicited raving
testimony for the Rancho del Sol
Avocado Garlic Oil which is my favorite!
Goodmorning Dr. Young:
Once again I have to write and say THANK YOU
for the avocado oil!!! I made my husband a
salad for work and poured on some advocado-garlic
oil instead of his usual heavy dressing and he
came home and said it was the best salad he ever
had and he was making himself another one for his
lunch the next day-and I had to show him where
I stashed the Rancho del Sol avocado oils.
Thank you so much
