We all love avocados, heck they’re incredibly high in healthy fats. Tim Tebow swears by them and puts them in smoothies; Halle Berry lives off them in some part due to her Ketogenic diet ( that’s a debate for another day) and she is hotter than the sun at 50. (If you don’t believe me You Tube Halle Berry diet secrets)
It is a common fact that avocados are very healthy for us, full of monounsaturated fats and whilst they might seem insanely high I need fats, what exactly is so good about them and why might eating one a day be so beneficial?
Eating one avocado a day is allegedly responsible for significantly lowering the levels of LDL cholesterol in our bloodstreams. This bad cholesterol is another term for the plaque build up in our arteries.
Avocado also improves the levels of lutein (the anti-oxidants associated with better heart health) by more than 68%. One avocado also contains half of the dietary fibre that we need in our diet each day, so if you eat one a day then just one gives you half of your dietary fibre for the day.
Eating an avocado a day will lower you’re cholesterol levels by almost twice as much compared to if you ate a low fat diet. It is also a fruit that is high in potassium which again is important for heart health.
