'Psoriasis responds well to avocado oil and vitamin B12, according to a study published in the 2001 issue of the journal "Dermatology." Psoriasis patients used the vitamin and avocado oil cream for 12 weeks and showed consistent improvement throughout the study period.

Neutralising Free Radicals / Anti Aging
So we know that antioxidants fight cellular damage caused by free radicals which are a waste product of metabolism. High levels may contribute to diseases like Type 2 Diabetes and Heart Disease. By giving electrons to free radicals, antioxidants neutralise them preventing harm. Many varieties of free radicals exist but some are of more concern than others, such as Oxygen derived radicals known as Reactive Oxygen Species (ROS). Mitochondria the cell organs that produce energy are major sources of ROS.
According to one study in diabetic rats, avocado oil was shown to protect against the harmful effects of free radicals by entering the Mitochondria and once there neutralizing free radicals preventing damage to this important cell organ.
