Health Benefits of Avocado
While, eating a diet that contains plenty of fruits and vegetables of all kinds is associated to reduced risk of many lifestyle-related health conditions.
One research study shows that the consumption of avocado can lead to improved diet quality and nutrient intake, including a lowered risk of metabolic syndrome.
Another research study explains that avocado seeds can help for managing diabetes, inflammatory conditions, and hypertension, as well as for improving hypercholesterolemia while promoting a healthy complexion and hair, increased energy, and overall lower weight.
Even more, these seeds come in the form of organic avocado seed powder and supplements, which can be added to soups, smoothies, and drinks.
According to the USDA National Nutrient Database, avocados contain minerals including calcium, iron, magnesium, potassium, copper, manganese, phosphorus and zinc. They also have high levels of vitamin A, K, C, E, B6, thiamin, riboflavin, and niacin (vitamins B1, B2, B3, respectively).
Also, the highest concentrations of antioxidants are closest to the skin. So, you want to try to get as much of the flesh as you can.
The California Avocado Commission recommends the “nick and peel” method. Here’s how it works (you can check out a visual how-to on the CAC website):
- Wash your avocado.
- Cut it lengthwise, around the seed.
- Rotate your fruit and cut it into one-quarter segments.
- Separate the pieces and remove the seed.
- Starting from the top of each piece, nick and peel the flesh off. Then discard the skin.
As a result, adding avocado’s with your daily gym routine will boost your energy and adds up your daily healthy calories.
