Don't Throw Away Those Avocado Seeds, Here's Why

The amazing health benefits of avocado seeds are:

Rich Source Of Antioxidants

A study that was conducted to observe the antioxidant content in avocado seeds found that the seeds of the fruit contained 70% more antioxidant value than the fruit itself which, if eaten, greatly aids in preventing oxidative stress in the body at a cellular level.Antioxidants work in reducing cellular aging, fighting inflammation and improving the body's entire condition.

Healing Digestive Disorders

Avocado seeds have been used for hundreds of years to treat ulcers, constipation and diarrhea. This is because avocado seeds contain soluble fiber and powerful anti-inflammatory compounds which aid in reducing flatulence and bloating and eliminate toxins and waste that could cause complications.

Preventing Heart Disease

Avocado seeds contain soluble fiber that helps in getting rid of the cardiovascular system's plaque buildup and cholesterol, which therefore helps to prevent heart disease, heart failure and stroke.

Avocado seeds aid in lowering the bad cholesterol levels and they contain essential fatty acids that help to raise the good cholesterol levels, which aids in restoring a healthy cholesterol balance.

Preventing Cravings and Increasing Fat Loss

Avocado seeds contain a high amount of soluble and insoluble fiber which helps in keeping you feeling fuller for longer therefore reducing cravings in between meals and thus encouraging accelerated fat loss.

It also aids in the elimination of excess toxins and waste, which in turn improves nutrient absorption and boosts metabolism thereby helping in improving the rate at which food is broken down.

Preventing Blood Sugar Spikes

Avocado seeds are rich in fiber which make them a perfect addition to any smoothie or meal as they aid in balancing out any intake of sugar thereby keeping our blood sugar levels stable.

Reduces Inflammation

Avocado seeds contain powerful anti-inflammatory compounds known as catechins and procyanidins which aid in reducing the risk of developing chronic inflammation.

Chronic inflammation is dangerous as it could lead to a number of diseases and discomforts, such as arthritis and hypertension .

Enhancing Good Skin Health

Avocado seeds are rich in antioxidants which assist in reducing oxidative stress that is caused by the sun’s harmful Ultraviolet (UV) rays as well as pollution, chemicals and our modern environment. This aids in reducing the visible signs of aging, as well as rejuvenating the tone and condition of the skin tissue.

Avocado seeds also contain nourishing oils which aid in smoothening any formed wrinkles and improving the skin's elasticity thereby making you look younger and healthier .

Excellent Source of Potassium

Avocado seeds are such a rich source of potassium, which makes it an excellent source of fluid-balancing nutrition. Potassium aids in eliminating excess toxins and fluid from the body as well as reducing muscle cramps.
