Here are a few things about avocado that maybe people don’t know yet, and its time to find out and leran more things about this amazing fruit.
They are a great addition to a salad or smoothie, but lately for many the avocado has come to be seen as a guilty pleasure.
Avocado is classified as a fruit, but it is not typical in the fact that rather than being high in carbohydrate, avocados are high in fat. Because the avocado is high in fat and fats are considered as dietary enemy number one, the same was thought about the avocado, but not anymore, as the tables turn and the scientific spotlight shines more acutely on sugar, so the benefits of the humble avocado are being released.
A new study has revealed an interesting fact that adding the green fruit to your diet can aid weight loss. According to scientists from the Hass Avocado Board, in California, they claim that the fruit reduces a person’s risk of heart disease.
Emiliano Escobedo, executive director, said: ‘This study supports the body of research showing the many benefits that fresh avocados have to offer when consumed in everyday healthy eating plans.’
The findings fall in line with recent recommendations from the 2015-2020 Dietary Guidelines for Americans. The directions stated that shifting from solid fats to oils, such as the oil in fresh avocados, which in terms means making small shifts in food choices can make a big difference.
The new study, published in the Journal of Clinical Lipidology, confirmed that swapping solid fats for avocados can ‘significantly change lipid profiles’.Studies were made on 229 participants and were analyzed 10 unique avocado, in which the researchers assessed the impact of avocado on cholesterol levels.
The results came out and it was determined that consuming one to one-and-a-half avocados per day ‘significantly reduced total cholesterol’.
Additionally, it also limited the ‘bad’ low-density lipoprotein cholesterol and triglycerides when substituted for sources of fat.
It was noted by the Dr Sachin Shah, who is author of the corresponding study that the results showed that even healthy study subjects showed significant reductions.
Dr Nikki Ford, director of nutrition for Hass Avocado Board, said: ‘Fresh avocado, as part of a balanced diet, and as a cholesterol-free substitute for solid fats, can help be part of the solution for maintaining normal cholesterol levels.
‘Beyond their naturally good fats, avocados are also a delicious way to boost fiber… and fruit intakes, both of which are under consumed in American diets.’
According to a study, having high levels of bad cholesterol is known to be a major risk factor for heart disease.
Here is one terrifying fact about the cardiovascular disease – is responsible for one out of every four deaths – and it is the number one killer of men and women, and that heart disease is also one of the leading causes of disability.But so that the researchers can be sure, it must be conducted
But so that the researchers can be sure, it must be conducted an additional research to look at the impact of avocados on major adverse cardiovascular events.
Scientists noted that the optimal amount of avocado and frequency of use needs further evaluation.Mr Escobedo said: ‘Clinical studies are currently underway to investigate the relationship between avocado consumption and risk factors for heart disease, diabetes, support of weight management and healthy living.’
