Benefits of Avocado :
Avocado has been shown to be good for heart health, with the compounds beta-sitosterol helping maintain a healthy cholesterol level. Monounsaturated fats are found in avocados, peanuts, and olives. Studies have shown when these monounsaturated fats are replaced with saturated fat or trans fat in your diet, it can positively effect levels of bad cholesterol.
Avocados are good for the eyes thanks to their high amounts of lutein and zeaxanthin. These nutrients are important for eye health, with studies suggesting it may help reduce the risk of age-related macular degeneration, which is the leading cause of vision loss for adults over 50.
Avocados have no sodium and are recommended for those following the DASH diet. They also have a good amount of potassium, which may help lower blood pressure too. The study found that eating avocados in place of other fats can help lower blood pressure.
