Avocado for health and wellness

I found out these wonderful words on a website of WebMD:

I eat three avocados a day - says George Bliss, age 81, has been eating avocados morning, noon, and night...After eight decades of daily avocado consumption, he's still going strong; at 6 feet tall, he weighs a trim 180 pounds.

In addition to great taste, avocados is great health.

But why avocados are so good for health and wellness?

Avocados contain over 12 minerals. These minerals stimulate growth and keep other body functions in check. If you are tired all the time and struggle to deal with stressful situations, you may be suffering from nutritional anaemia, in which case the excellent copper and iron content in one of these little green wonders will aid red blood cell regeneration and help prevent the anaemia.

Recent research (University of Ohio) shows that avocados significantly increase the absorption of phytochemicals contained in other fruits and vegetables.

They contain oleic acid which is great for your heart and can help lower cholesterol levels. They are rich in Vitamin E - vital for healthy skin and offer an excellent source of protein. The high magnesium content helps fight against osteoporosis.

Avocados have more potassium than a banana, but even though an avocado is technically a fruit, it contains only 2% sugar so much better for you if you are trying to reduce your sugar intake to control candida.

    Excellent article. I eat two avocados each day. I am 75 years old and in excellent health due to healthful eating. I eat Nutiva's organic hemp protein powder with organic carrot juice for my protein each day, as well as organic onions, two organic oranges, organic flax oil, and organic dates each day. I eat organic collard greens, kale, and kiwis as often as possible. Avoid blueberries. Blueberries are too acidic for eating. I eat nothing but organic foods. I also try to take key vitamin/mineral supplements each day although I am not as good about doing that as I should be.

    I should add that I am 5'9" and weigh 110 pounds. I have always been very "skinny" as people describe me. But I have always eaten healthfully. Now I have learned to avoid legumes and nightshades because of the phytic acid and lectins in them. It is also important to eat alkaline rather than acidic foods. Thanks for the opportunity to share our health information.

    I should probably add that I have been a vegan for over 40 years. Meat and dairy products involve horrific suffering for animals and are unhealthy for people in addition.

    I have discovered that a person should not eat more than one avocado a day. Since cutting back to one avocado per day instead of two, I do notice an improvement in my health.

    I am very food-sensitive and always have been.

    I have, also, switched from eating onions each day to two garlic cloves each day. I eat the garlic cloves with the oranges as I did the onion. I, also, am eating now three kiwis each day.

    I, also, am trying now to eat collard greens each day to prevent cancer. The garlic and oranges also help prevent cancer. The kiwis are important for eye health.

    I want my health to be perfect which is why I keep studying health issues and changing my regimen in terms of what I learn.
