10 REASONS WHY YOU NEED TO EAT AVOCADO EVERY DAY! (VIDEO)
We can easily say that avocado is one of the healthiest fruits on the planet. Agree?! Share your thoughts in the comment section below. Avocado contains high amounts of healthy nutrients, especially healthy fats, which can provide many health benefits for you and your health in general. Avocado is SUPER-DELICIOUS and you should consume them every day. But, consider moderation, because they contain high amounts of calories. Even though avocados contain high amount of fats, that actually is a good thing. Avocados contain the “good” fats, including the monosaturated fat. The monosaturated fat can help you lower the risk of heart attack or stroke, along with the levels of bad cholesterol in your blood.
STUDY CONFIRMS – a new research, conducted by group of experts The American Heart Association, has revealed that eating a single avocado a day significantly decreases your cholesterol level and lowers your risk of heart disease. If you have or are at risk for heart disease or your doctor has concerns about a potential heart attack, you should seriously consider adding avocado to your daily routine!
THE RESULTS – 45 obese people (men and women, 21-70 years old) were separated in three groups with each group eating a different cholesterol lowering diet. The first one was a low-fat diet (24% fat), the second one was a moderate-fat diet (34% fat) with no avocado and the third one was a moderate fat diet (34% fat) with avocado. Each of the new diets improved participants’ LDL cholesterol, which is the worst kind of cholesterol. But the avocado eaters fared the best: their LDL cholesterol dropped 13 points, compared to around 8 points for people on the low-fat or avocado-free moderate-fat diets.
The researchers also discovered that that just 1 avocado per day as part of a moderate-fat, healthy diet, significantly lowers cholesterol and suggests that avocados should be a daily part of a heart healthy diet to help prevent cardiovascular disease and health problems related to high cholesterol. And, in this case, an avocado a day really does keep the doctor away!
