8 Avocado Benefits

1. IMPROVED HEART HEALTH

Avocados (and especially avocado oil) promote heart health by balancing blood lipids because of their fatty acid composition – they contain about 71 percent monounsaturated fatty acids, or MUFAs.

2. LOWER RISK FOR METABOLIC SYNDROME

Eating avocados helps regulate hormones associated with risk factors for diabetes, obesity and cardiovascular diseases, including insulin, triglycerides and cholesterol.

3. HEALTHY SKIN, EYES AND HAIR

Rich in fat-soluble vitamins and monounsaturated fats, avocado benefits also include glowing skin, bright eyes and shiny hair both when eaten or used topically.

4. CANCER PREVENTION

Certain phytochemicals found in avocados, plus their healthy fat content from MUFAs, has linked eating avocados to reduced risks for both cancer and diabetes.

5. HELP WITH WEIGHT LOSS

If you want to lose weight fast, avocados are your friend – the healthy fats in this fruit help you feel full faster so you eat less overall.

6. BETTER DIGESTIVE HEALTH

Avocados are one of the best fruit sources of fibre. Plus, the healthy fats in avocados are essential for digestion and nutrient absorption because they nourish the lining of the gut.

7. PROTECTION FROM INSULIN RESISTANCE AND DIABETES

A MUFA-rich diet helps balance glucose and insulin levels and helps prevent obesity.

8. BETTER HORMONAL BALANCE AND COGNITIVE FUNCTION

Your moods also benefit when you eat enough healthy fats.
