In this section of Seattle Organic Restaurants I’m going to talk about avocado’s health benefits. Avocado is a great anti-inflammatory and can fight off cancer and heart disease by lowering the level of cholesterol. Avocado can help to improve weight loss and promote healthy hair and skin.
Here are the top reasons why you should have one avocado a day:
Anti-Inflammatory: Avocado is a great anti-inflammatory and a rich source of flavonoids and polyphenols. The anti-inflammatory properties in avocado can help to kill cancer cells and lower the risk of health problems such as rheumatoid arthritis and osteoarthritis.
Lowering the Level of Cholesterol & Heart Disease: Avocado has monounsaturated fatty acids (omega 3 fatty acids) and can help to lower the level of bad cholesterol in the body. Avocado has beta-sitosterol and oleic acid that help to reduce the cholesterol level. The omega-3 fatty acids, folic and folate acids, potassium and vitamin B-6 in avocado can lower the risk of heart problems.
Healthy Hair and Skin: The vitamin E in avocado is really good for hair and skin health. The omega-3 fatty acid in avocado delivers live nutrients to the hair follicle. Mix a combination of one avocado with 4 egg yolks and some grapeseed oil in a blender. Rub the mixture gently on your sculpt and hair and leave it for two hours then rinse and wash your hair properly. Avocado can hydrate the hair and make your hair stronger.
Getting Rid of Stomach Fat: The omega-3 fatty acids in avocado can get rid of bad fat ( and bad cholesterol) in the body, especially the belly fat. Avocados have been known to fight off dermatitis, eczema, wounds, infections and prevent birth defects.
