With this great addition, here are some great benefits we get from avocado’s;

1. Good for Improving Eye Health

Avocados boost absorption of nutrients that are important to good health but are also rich in the eyes’ preferred anti-oxidants, lutein, and zeaxanthin. These anti-oxidants have demonstrated the ability to reduce the development of cataracts, slow down degeneration of the muscles and nerves of the eyes, and can improve night vision. These become even more important the older we get.

2. Avocados Can Prevent Bad Breath

Avocados contain flavonoids which combat bacterial and fungal overgrowth in the mouth, effectively reducing the likelihood of halitosis occurring. In that same vein, they can also help prevent festering of mouth ulcers.

3. Promote Healing of Wounds

Avocados can help speed up the healing of wounds, by modulating immune system activity. Ensuring that recruitment occurs in a timely fashion helps overall healing by cutting down recovery time.

4. Avocado Can Function As Aphrodisiacs

Yes, as was briefly mentioned above, the word avocado originated from the Aztec people and meant testicle. The reason behind this? Avocados were believed to be strong aphrodisiacs. Even though they are not true aphrodisiacs in the sense of the word, they were definitely on to something.

Avocados are rich in saturated fat, which is important in the synthesis of testosterone. It is no coincidence that modern diets that seek to actively restrict fat intake coincide with lowest testosterone levels, and with it, low sex drive. So indirectly, avocados are indeed aphrodisiacs.

 

5. Avocados Can Help You Lose Weight

We all can probably do with a little bit of weight loss, so every single thing helps. When it comes to fat, many people are scared and misinformed. Fats will not necessarily cause you to gain weight, even though they yield more calories per gram when compared with the other macronutrients.

Avocados, however, can help reduce your appetite and suppresses your overall caloric intake over the course of the day. Plus, when included in meals, you are likely to be satisfied for a far longer time, as opposed to having a meal without ample fat.

So next time you are about to enjoy some githeri, add some avocado.
