Avocados are a rare treasure – a rich and creamy food, full of fat, that is actually good for you! But surely you need to be careful with your consumption, right? Nothing that tastes so good could be okay to eat every day. Actually, there is no health reason at all not to indulge on a daily basis, and plenty of reasons why doing so is a great choice. The only thing that might stop you is the steep price tag. Here’s what will happen if you eat avocado every day.
You will protect your heart
The type of fat contained in avocados is monounsaturated “good fat” that can help reduce your risk of heart attack as well as lower levels of bad cholesterol in your blood. Beyond the unsaturated fat, avocados contain several antioxidants that can prevent inflammation and oxidative stress in blood vessels. The result is improved blood flow and a happier heart. Because heart disease is the number one killer in the United States, it’s a no-brainer to try and incorporate more heart healthy foods into your daily diet.
