Natural Farmacy: Health Guide: Ingredients: Avocado: Health Conditions

Avocado  Persea americana
One the most nutrient-dense foods that exist; a rich source of over 14 minerals that are used by the body.

Stimulates the body to produce the antioxidant glutathione which is known to block over 25 different carcinogens.

Nourishes the skin with essential vitamins, rich in oleic acid which lowers cholesterol.

Balances electrolytes in the body.

Contains properties that neutralize free radicals and protect cells from damage.

Has more than twice as much potassium as a banana.

Use avocado oil while detoxing the body: it lubricates the intestinal walls, allowing the toxins to be absorbed by the oil for elmination by the body.

Select firm ones with no mushy spots. A very versatile ingredient, it mixes well with fruits and vegetables. Store in the refrigerator for up to a week. Unripe avocados can be ripened in a paper bag.

Native to Central America.
