Minimize Your Cholesterol With Avocados

By Elroy Tyner

Oftentimes, we trust prescription drugs more than anything to help us get over an illness, for instance high cholesterol levels. But more often than not, these drugs, although created with good intentions, do more harm than good in particular those with side effects a mile long.

Some of these prescription drugs make one feel lousy and depressed. But more than mood, these can potentially be harmful to your liver.

But don’t you know that you don’t have to resort to just these medicines to lower your cholesterol? There are natural remedies out there that can do you a lot of good, minus the side effects.

Look at what are the benefits of eating avocado. Avocados have monounsaturated fats that when inside the body it produces and distributes good cholesterol in the body balancing out the bad in the body. It’s not only tasty but healthy too.

Avocado also contains beta-sitosterol which in simple terms acts as a filter so when you take in food absorption of the bad fats are minimized and it just passes through the body.

In a further study middle aged women ate avocado everyday for about 3 weeks and at the 3rd week it was found that they had 8% reduction in cholesterol level while some well known low-fat diets could only reduce an average of 5% decrease in cholesterol levels. Mind you, this statistics is already proven and published.

What’s more, the avocado is also known to reduce the risk of heart attack by 20 percent. You don’t have to torture yourself by restraining your cravings and food intake. With avocado, you can get to eat as much as you want and still be good to your heart!
