An avocado a day keeps bad cholesterol away, finds new research

An avocado a day can help to keep bad cholesterol away. This has been found by some new research. Avocados are known for their high fat content. That is why many people try to stay away from this food. Avocados are a very great source of heart healthy monounsaturated fats.

Key Takeaways:

  • eating an entire creamy avocado every day could significantly lower low-density lipoprotein (LDL) or bad cholesterol among overweight and obese people.
  • the avocado consuming group showed more favorable blood measurements when it came to total cholesterol, triglycerides, LDL and non-HDL cholesterol, among other factors.
  • While most people are still uncertain about how to use this fat-rich fruit, avocados are a versatile food that can be added to many of your meals.

“Just like organic extra-virgin olive oil, avocados are an excellent source of heart-healthy monounsaturated fats (MUFAs) which our bodies quickly burn for energy; they are what’s considered the right type of fat.”
