Benefits of eating avocado

Mar 6th 2020 at 8:46 PM

Numerous studies have found that a predominantly plant-based diet that includes foods such as avocados can help to decrease the risk of obesity, diabetes, heart disease, and overall mortality while promoting a healthy complexion and hair, increased energy, and overall lower weight.

3.4 grams of carbohydrate
less than a gram of sugar
almost 3 grams of fiber

Healthy for the heart

Avocados contain 25 milligrams per ounce of a natural plant sterol called beta-sitosterol. Regular consumption of beta-sitosterol and other plant sterols has been seen to help maintain healthy cholesterol levels

Good for your vision

Avocados contain lutein and zeaxanthin, two phytochemicals that are especially concentrated in the tissues in the eyes where they provide antioxidant protection to help minimize damage, including from ultraviolet light.

Cancer
Adequate intake of folate from food has shown promise in protecting against colon, stomach, pancreatic, and cervical cancers.

Lower risk of depression
Foods containing high levels of folate may help to decrease the risk of depression because folate helps to prevent the build-up of homocysteine, a substance that can impair circulation and delivery of nutrients to the brain.

Quick tips:

Spread avocado on toast in the morning instead of butter.
Use avocado instead of mayonnaise in chicken or egg salad, or as a spread on a sandwich.
The soft, creamy texture of an avocado and its mild taste make it a perfect first food for babies.
