Al­though av­o­cado is a very healthy and nu­tri­tious food, it may cause cer­tain side ef­fects in peo­ple who take it on a reg­u­lar ba­sis. Some peo­ple can de­velop a cer­tain al­ler­gic re­ac­tion to avo­ca­dos. These peo­ple are also known to be al­ler­gic to ba­nanas, peaches, mel­ons, pota­toes, toma­toes and kiwi. There are many vari­ants of avo­ca­dos avail­able in the mar­ket and some of them may cause dam­age to the liver when taken on a reg­u­lar ba­sis. Be­cause of avo­ca­dos, col­la­gen tends to ac­cu­mu­late in the liver. To stay clear of this side ef­fect, be sure that you’re eat­ing only the finest kind of avo­ca­dos avail­able. If you de­cide to add av­o­cado to your diet, be sure to cut on calo­ries some­where else. Av­o­cado is fairly high in calo­ries be­cause of its equally high fat con­tent. It was also noted that be­cause of av­o­cado’s an­ti­in­flam­ma­tory ef­fect, blood thin­ning med­i­ca­tions may not work as much. Pa­tients who are on statins/ as­pirins should con­sume av­o­cado in lim­ited doses.
