Avocado is great for guacamole, among other recipes. It also has nutritious values.

An avocado is a great method for losing weight. Don’t be fooled by its fatty content, as avocados only deliver healthy fats to the organism.

According to a study, eating half an avocado a day helps suppress unhealthy cravings up to 5 hours after eating.

Due to its rich potassium content, avocados can balance the blood pressure with ease. Potassium is usually in charge of eliminating extra sodium in the body. With that, an avocado can help cleanse the blood vessels, thus balancing the blood pressure ideally.

3. Improves eyesight

Avocados are packed with two essential carotenoids: lutein and zeaxanthin. Both in their natural form, these substances drastically improve the vision in avocado consumers. It is also good to know that avocados have the highest levels of these ingredients out of all0natural products.

4. Controls cholesterol

Due to its healthy fats content, avocados can regulate the cholesterol in the body. Various studies showed that avocados are particularly good for reducing the levels of the bad, or LDL cholesterol.

5. Prevents diabetes

Another great benefit of eating avocados is that it keeps you safe from diabetes. As researchers in the field explain, consuming one avocado a day balances the insulin and blood glucose levels immaculately.

6. Helps during pregnancy

Avocados work their magic around pregnant ladies as well. Given that avocados are packed with vitamins B6 and C, folate, and potassium, avocados make sure the fetus and the mother are nurtured at all times.

7. Strengthens bones

As a result of its rich vitamin K content, avocados can dense the bone structure and prevent bone fragility. In addition, avocados are packed with vitamin D and calcium, both crucial for proper bone development and resistance.

8. Feeds body nutrients

When you feel your diet is failing you, try eating an avocado. Enriched with minerals and vitamins which keep the body satisfied and healthy, it only takes one serving of avocados to get the desired nutrient level. To be specific, an avocado a day will provide you with the following value: 39% vitamin K, 21% potassium, 25% of vitamin C, and 30% folate.

9. Builds nutrient reserves

Sometimes, our digestive system can flush away important nutrients, due to improper absorption. This is where avocado effectively helps preserve those nutrients. As a result, your body will have more nutrients to use when needed, like alpha and beta carotene, lutein, and lycopene.

10.Introduces healthy fats

Healthy fats are crucial if you want to maintain the perfect body-mind synergy. Avocado is one of the riches foods in healthy fats, which mainly help you prevent cardiovascular issues, strokes, and elevated LDL cholesterol levels.
