Why Buy Fresh Organic Avocado Leaves from California?

Organic avocado leaves, freshly picked from avocado trees in California Orchard, have many delicious healing properties and health benefits and many ways to enjoy them and incorporate them into your life.

How to Make Organic Avocado Leaf Tea?

To prepare fresh avocado leaf tea, simply rinse the avocado leaves under cold water to remove any stray dirt or particles. Put the leaves into the pot of hot water or pour hot water over the leaves and let the leaves infuse the water for 5-10 minutes. Less or more of fresh avocado leaves can be used for gentler or stronger flavor. Sweeten with honey to taste.
 

Why Buy Fresh Avocado Leaves?

It is completely fine to choose dried versions for the majority of herbs, but most chefs and herbalists would agree that most herbs are better tasting and more effective medicinally when they are fresh and organic.
 
Depending on the harvesting and drying process, as well as storage time and conditions prior to use, the nutritional and medicinal properties of the herb might be reduced or destroyed.
 
The essential oils and medicinal components of many herbs are at peak levels when the herb is fresh rather than dried. For many herbalists the freshness of the harvested herbs is critical for their formulas.

We do not spray or apply any kind of synthetic or chemical pesticides, fungicides, or nutrients/fertilizers to our organic avocado trees or anything we grow on our land. Our weed removal is all done mechanically or by hand, so we do not use any herbicides.

  • Hypotensive Activity of Avocado Leaves: According to study in Fitoterapia, 1 Avocado Leaf might have an effect of lowering blood pressure (hypotensive activity).
  • Reducing Kidney Stones: In Indonesia, avocado leaves have been used as traditional medicines for diureticum to cure urolithiasis. According to the article published in Hayati Journal of Biosciences, 2 “extract of avocado’s leaves with ethanol extraction is an efficient agent to inhibit formation of calcium oxalate crystal in the rats’ kidney. The extract of avocado’s leaves is potential natural antioxidant and anti inflammation compounds that able to prevent formation of calcium oxalate crystal by interfering process of epithelial cell damage.”
  • Hypoglycemic Activity of Avocado Leaves: According to Indian Journal of Pharmacology, 3 “The result of the phytochemical screening of the aqueous leaf extract of Persea americana revealed that the extract contained various pharmacologically active compounds such as saponins, tannins, phlobatannins, flavonoids, alkaloids, and polysaccharides. A sustained significant (P < 0.01) reduction in the blood glucose levels of the treated rats was observed throughout the period of treatment… The observation confirms the use of this plant in ethnomedical practice for diabetes management and demonstrated that long-term treatment for 7 days was more effective than single dose acute treatment.”
