AV­O­CADO: NOT ONLY A HEALTHY FAT

Amazing Wellness - - AMAZING NEWS -

Of­ten men­tioned as a source of healthy fat, av­o­cado can do much more. Turns out, its vi­ta­mins, min­er­als, and fats re­duce a com­bi­na­tion of symp­toms that triple risk for type 2 di­a­betes and mul­ti­ply risk for heart disease by five times. Called meta­bolic syn­drome, that com­bi­na­tion of risk fac­tors in­cludes high blood sugar, blood pressure, and choles­terol, and obe­sity—and av­o­cado re­duces all of them, ac­cord­ing to sev­eral stud­ies re­viewed in the jour­nal Phy­tother­apy Re­search. Per­haps best of all, it’s a tasty snack or ad­di­tion to sal­ads, sand­wiches, dips, and spreads.
