Abstract:Avocados are packed with monounsaturated fatty acids which are very essential for our body.They provide 20 energy boosting nutrients apart from maintaining good cholesterol levels.
Avocados, which are actually classified as a fruit, are rich in monounsaturated fat that is easily burned for energy.It is also very high in potassium and will help balance your vitally important potassium to sodium ratio. The sodium potassium ratio can be highly dangerous for your heart health. To maintain your weight,when you cut down on carbs, you need to increase your intake of healthy fats. Avocados are an excellent source, along with organic raw butter, coconut oil, and organic
pastured eggs, just to name a few. Reduction in intake of protein can be helpful for long-term good health and the prevention of cancer. At the very least, most people are consuming far too much poor-quality protein, such as beef and animal products from livestock raised in confined animal feeding operations (CAFOs). Here again, if you cut down on protein, you need to replace lost calories with healthy fats such as avocados, coconut oil, olives, olive oil, butter and nuts. Overall, most people would do well to get upwards of 50-70 percent fat in their diet (along with high amounts of vegetable carbs, moderate-to-low amounts of high-quality protein, and very little, if any, carbs). According to the California Avocado Commission, avocado contains about 22.5 grams of fat, two-thirds of which is monounsaturated. They’re also very low in fructose, which is yet another boon, and provide close to 20 essential health-boosting nutrients, including: Fiber Potassium (more than twice the amount found in a banana) Vitamin E B-vitamins Folic acid Avocados are one of the safest fruits you can buy conventionally-grown,and you need not to purchase organic ones.
