Avocado and Its Health Benefits

Who told you that avocado is sinful and full of cholesterol? First, we have to classify that there are two kinds of cholesterol, the LDL (Low-density lipoprotein) or commonly known as the bad cholesterol and HDL (High-density lipoprotein) which combats the former.


Avocado contains oleic acid that helps to lower down your bad cholesterol count. Traces of potassium, the mineral that helps regulate blood pressure and Vitamin B, E and K could be found in this fruit. Problems that are related to high blood pressure, heart diseases and stroke can be minimized by consuming avocado at least 3 servings per week. And for those who are into building more muscle mass, avocado, this brings monosaturated fat.

Also, avocado is good for preventing and treating breast cancer as well as prostate cancer. High avocado intake was shown in one study to lower blood cholesterol levels.

Besides, fat is an essential component to keep yourself running. You just need to identify which food to eat and choose the healthy way. Likewise, too much of this is also bad. Proper moderation is the key.
