The avocado is the mother fruit. It is the closest food on the planet to breast milk, and has many nurturing qualities.
Even though the skin of most avocados is inedible, it is loaded with hundreds of undiscovered phytochemical compounds, many of which are infused into an avocado’s flesh as it grows. Some of these phytochemicals are isothiocyanates, which are involved with the color of the yellow-green flesh and help restore stomach and intestinal linings.
When you are suffering from digestive disorders of any kind, avocados can come to the rescue. Easy to digest, their creamy flesh is a gut soother for those with food sensitivities, Crohn’s disease, colitis, or IBS. Avocados possess anti-inflammatory compounds that have an aspirin-like quality without thinning the blood; this reduces narrowing and swelling of the digestive tract. This fruit also has polyp-reducing properties, helping you to prevent or rid yourself of these small growths of the intestinal lining.
Avocados are amazing for the brain, too. A healthy source of omega-6 fatty acids, they can help restore the central nervous system and help with Alzheimer’s and dementia.
Eating avocados also has an anti-aging effect on the skin, reducing dryness, giving you a healthy glow, and contributing to the disappearance of dark under-eye circles. They also contain anti-radiation agents that are phytoestrogenic.
How To Use:
Enjoy avocado alone, in salads, guacamole, dressings, and dips.
