11 Proven Benefits of Avocado

6. Avocados might make you healthier

In a study conducted by NHANES in the United States among 17, 567 participants, experts found out that those people who consume avocados tend to be much healthier than those who didn’t eat avocadoes. Those who eat avocados has a much higher nutrient intake and were half as likely to have metabolic syndrome – a cluster of symptoms that are a major risk for heart disease and diabetes (25).

People who ate avocados regularly also weighed less, had a lower BMI and significantly less belly fat. They also had more HDL (the “good”) cholesterol.

However, remember that this does not readily mean that if you constantly eat avocados, you will be healthier. There is a correlation between avocado diet and better health but it does not necessarily mean that it is the avocado alone that’s making the work.
