Avocado is considered a "Superfood" because of the many studies that prove its benefits and many health benefits such as fighting obesity, diabetes, heart disease and its benefits to the skin and hair.

Here Are The Many Benefits Of Avocado:

Nutrition Compact

Avocado is a good source of vitamins C, E, K and B-6, as well as riboflavin, niacin, folate, pantothenic acid, magnesium and potassium.

Avocado also contains lutein, beta-carotene and omega-3 fatty acids.

Even if the calories of avocado are from fat, there is no need to worry.

Avocado fats are healthy fats and beneficial to health.

Fat is essential for every cell in the body.

Eating healthy fats supports skin health, improves the absorption of fat-soluble vitamins, minerals and other nutrients. It also strengthens the body's immune system.

Good on the Heart

Avocado contains 25 milligrams per ounce of natural plant sterol called beta-sitosterol.

Consumption of beta-sitosterol and other plant sterols has been proven to help maintain healthy cholesterol levels.

Good on the Eyes

Avocado contains lutein and zeaxanthin, these are two phytochemicals concentrated in the eye tissues which provide antioxidant protection to reduce eye damage such as ultraviolet light damage and others.

The monosaturated fatty acids of avocado also support the absorption of other beneficial fat-soluble antioxidants such as beta-carotene.

Adding avocado to your diet helps reduce the risk of age-related macular degeneration.

Prevents Osteoporosis

Half an avocado provides 25% of the daily recommended intake of vitamin K.

When it comes to bone health, vitamin K is often overlooked due to the amount of calcium and vitamin D.

But like calcium and vitamin D, adequate consumption of vitamin K is also essential and helps a lot in bone health.

Against cancer

Adequate consumption of folate has been shown to protect against colon, stomach, pancreatic and cervical cancers.

But so far it is not clear how folate can reduce the risk of the above-mentioned cancers.

Avocado may also play a role in cancer treatment.

According to studies, phytochemicals derived from avocado have been shown to inhibit the formation of pre-cancerous and cancerous cells and result in the death of cancer cells while promoting lymphocytes as an immune system cell.

Chronic Diseases Protection

According to the Department of Internal Medicine and Nutritional Sciences Program of the University of Kentucky, high fiber significantly lowers the risk of developing coronary heart disease, stroke, hypertension, diabetes, obesity and other types of gastrointestinal diseases.

Increased fiber intake has also been found to lower blood pressure and cholesterol levels, improve insulin sensitivity and improve weight loss for obese individuals.

Healthy Baby

Folate is extremely important for a healthy maternal pregnancy.

Adequate folate intake significantly reduces the risk of miscarriage and neural defects in infants.

Reduces the Risk of Depression

Foods high in folate help to reduce the risk of depression because folate helps prevent the formation of homocysteine, it is a bad substance that disrupts circulation and delivery of nutrients to the brain.

Homocysteine ​​also causes difficulty sleeping and deteriorating mood because it inhibits the production of serotonin and dopamine.

So avocado fiber is important to fight homocysteine.

Natural Detoxification

Adequate fiber promotes regular bowel movement which is a crucial stage in the release of feces or toxins into the body through bile and diarrhea.

Recent studies have shown that dietary fiber regulates the immune system and inflammation.

Good for Digestion

Despite the creamy texture of avocado, it is high in fiber with 6-7 grams per fruit.

Eating fruit high in natural fiber prevents constipation, maintains a healthy stomach and reduces the risk of colon cancer.

Anti-Microbial

Avocado contains a substance that has antimicrobial activity, it specifically fights Escherichia coli, the main cause of food poisoning.
