Watch This And Never Throw Away Avocado Seeds Again
If you’ve been hearing about the goodness of avocado seeds and you’re about to dismiss the claim as a recent fad, hold on.
Popular South American medicine was made aware of the benefits of avocado seeds long before we discovered them.
In places where the avocado originated, people have been using avocado seeds for years
to treat everything from diabetes to dysentery, including snakebite.
And not only for health; avocado seeds are also used for aesthetic and beauty purposes,
with the powdered seed used to treat dandruff and an ointment that is used as a cosmetic similar to a blush.
Fortunately for skeptics among us, modern science has been able to support many of these uses. Here is a closer look.
Reduce cholesterol levels
The avocado pulp is not the only part of the fruit that is found to reduce high cholesterol levels,
the 2012 research shows that the seed can also!
The animal study, published in the journal Plant Foods in Human Nutrition,
found that mice with high cholesterol experienced a reduction in total cholesterol and LDL cholesterol levels when given an avocado seed meal.
They were also protected in some way against the formation of arterial plaque.
The researchers believe that these benefits come from the antioxidant content of the seed and a high percentage of fiber.
Dr. Tom Wu, who has won United Nations awards for his work with diabetes and cancer,
recommends heart disease patients eat avocado seed for their soluble fiber that binds to fat and excess cholesterol.
They fight against inflammation
They could help control the body’s inflammatory response, making them effective in reducing gastrointestinal inflammation.
In several regions of South America, avocado seeds are used as a remedy to combat stomach infections and the problems associated with inflammation.
They can also have a positive effect from other diseases, such as arthritis and osteoarthritis.
Animal studies suggest that avocado seed extracts can help relax blood vessels,
which helps reduce blood pressure, a key risk factor for heart disease.
Can fight cancer
We have not found any mention of avocado seeds for cancer in folk medicine literature,
but a 2013 study found that ethanol extracts from avocado
and seed could induce death (apoptosis) in cells affected by leukemia or cancer.
blood. Researchers even suggest using avocado as an alternative treatment for leukemia
Strengthen the immune system
When experiencing the first symptoms of cold and flu, it is a good idea to use a little avocado seed throughout the day to keep your defenses high.
Due to the phenolic compounds of the seed, this food can stop viral and bacterial infections by strengthening the immune system.
