Avocado is pear-shaped fruit that has rough skin, oily edible flesh and a large stone. This tropical fruit possesses potent healthy compounds and it has the ability to boost the work of the metabolism, regulates hormones and fights numerous diseases. Avocado is high in plant sterols, including beta-sitosterol, that possess incredibly powerful antiestrogenic properties. The sterols contained in this plant inhibit the estrogen receptors in cells and in same time lower estrogen absorption rates, which results in higher progesterone levels in women and testosterone levels in men. Avocado flesh and avocado oil possess incredibly strong anti-aging properties that prevent damage caused by the free radical. Namely, scientific studies proved that avocados penetrate deeply inside the cell structures, where they enter the mitochondria and stimulate the production of energy, and on that way help the function of the cells even when are attacked by free radicals. Medical experts explain that the mitochondria are extremely important in the struggle against the free radicals and the reason for that is because this organelle are the central components of cells that produce most of the cell’s energy from nutrients. The free radicals also generate unstable chemicals that cause damage to the cellular components, including the mitochondria. At this point it is important to mention that the damage caused by the free radicals, directly affects aging. For many years, scientists have been trying to find an ingredient and create a remedy that will reverse this damage. Well, avocado oil is the ingredient that has the ability to reverse the free radicals damage.
Dr. Christian Cortez-Rojo is the lead study design author, and according to him: “avocado oil causes accelerated respiration in mitochondria, which indicates that the use of nutrients for producing energy for cell functions remains effective even in cells attacked by free radicals and that mitochondria can produce little amounts of damaging free radicals”.
The laboratory tests showed that avocado is extremely high in healthy raw fat and this fruit also contains about 20 essential nutrients, including: boron, B-vitamins, calcium, folic acid, fiber, iron, magnesium, potassium (twice the amount found in a banana), vitamin E, sodium, etc.
