This has been found in many studies. There are so many health benefits of taking this highly versatile fruit. Here you will find 20 of these benefits.

Rich in Healthy Fats

Avocados have high amounts of fats. All these fats are good fats, having monounsaturated fats. These fats help in reducing risk of heart attack or stroke and bad cholesterol levels in your blood.

Helping with Weight Loss

Consuming avocados can help with weight loss. As per a study (published – Nutrition Journal), taking just 1/2 avocado with your lunch can be helpful for those who are overweight. It can make you feel satiated for longer.

The study’s participants said that they had 40% lesser desire for eating for over 3 hours and 28% lesser desire for eating over 5 hours after their meal.

Controlling Blood Pressure

According to the American Heart Association, the power of potassium in reducing sodium effects on the body means that a diet containing natural sources of potassium can help in blood pressure control.

Avocados are rich in potassium. A fruit has 28% of the recommended daily dosage of potassium. But because avocados have high fats, you should minimize your fat intake in other foods for balancing the fat levels.

Reducing Cholesterol Levels

According to stats, 1 in 3 American adults suffer from high cholesterol problems. This doubles the risk of heart disease. The good news is that you have so many natural methods for lowering cholesterol levels.

According to studies, taking avocados regularly is a great way to lower cholesterol levels. The fruit offers the following benefits:

  • Lowering blood triglycerides
  • Lowering total cholesterol levels
  • Lowering LDL cholesterol (bad cholesterol)
  • Increasing HDL (good) cholesterol

Nutrient-Rich

Avocados contain high amounts of nutrients. Interestingly, there are more than 20 minerals and vitamins in each serving.

1 avocado gives you the following percentage of your Recommended Daily Values (RDV):

  • Vitamin C – 33%
  • Vitamin E – 21%
  • Vitamin B6 – 26%
  • Vitamin K – 53%
  • Copper – 19%
  • Folate – 41%
  • Potassium – 28%
  • Pantothenic Acid – 28%

Improved Nutrients Absorption

We can be taking as much nutrients, vitamin and minerals we can take. But it is most important that these nutrients are absorbed. There nutrients which are fat-soluble. This means they need fat for being assimilated by our body. The best examples include:

  • Vitamin A
  • Vitamin E
  • Vitamin K
  • Vitamin D
  • Some antioxidants

When you add 1/2 avocado to salad containing carrots, lettuce and spinach, you are absorbing 8.3 times the antioxidants alpha-carotene, 13.6 times beta-carotene and 4.3 times lutein.

Preventing Diabetes

According to the Centers for Disease Control & Prevention, diabetes is going to affect almost 40 percent people in the U.S. at one point in our lives. You must make sure to have your blood sugar levels balanced for minimizing this risk.

But avocados can help in the regulation of your blood sugar levels. According to a study, the participants were given 1/2 avocado with their lunch and then their insulin and blood glucose levels were measured at certain intervals.

They had avocados in their food, which raised their carb and calorie content, but they didn’t show any increase in their blood sugar levels as compared to those who took normal lunch without avocado.

Avocados for Getting Pain Relief

The oleic acid in avocado may also help in fighting inflammation. This is the monounsaturated fat found in olive oil that gives it most of its healthful properties. There are many studies that have connected oleic acid and reduction in inflammation.

Improving Eye Health with Avocados

Macular degeneration is amongst the biggest causes behind blindness among Americans. Zeaxanthin and lutein are two ingredients that have been found to be greatly effective fighting this condition.
