Avocado offers nearly 20 vitamins and minerals in every serving, including potassium, lutein and folate.At 10 grams a serving avocados are very high in fiber, particularly of the dietary, insoluble type. This type of fiber aids digestive health and bowel regularity. Insoluble fiber does not dissolve water (hence “insoluble”), which means that it’s more efficient in moving material through the digestive tract than soluble fiber. Insoluble fiber, such as that found in avocados, can help protect colon health and reduce inflammation. Further, the fiber contained in avocado helps to regulate blood sugar and cholesterol leve
The process begins with drying the avocado for a couple hours to remove moisture; then peeling off the outer, papery shell; then chopping up the inner part and blending it. People are adding the avocado powder to smoothies, shakes, granola, and yogurt for its alleged antioxidant power, which has been compared to that of green tea.
“Healthy fats help to maintain a healthy cardiovascular system and reduce risk of stroke, heart attacks and other cardiovascular diseases,” says Sandra J. Arevalo, MPH, RDN, a spokesperson for the American Association of Diabetes Educators and director of nutrition and outreach at Montefiore Community Programs in New York City.
“The high fat content helps with reducing spikes in blood sugar when consumed with other foods,” agrees Maureen Eyerman, a registered dietitian and certified Diabetes educator in San Luis Obispo county. “Monounsaturated fats found in avocados reduce LDL, or ‘bad’ cholesterol levels, while increasing HDL, ‘good’ cholesterol levels.” And speaking of daily fruits, you might be surprised to learn that avocados have more potassium than bananas. Potassium helps with lowering blood pressure and with prevention of strokes. Folate, a B vitamin found in avocados, also prevents strokes and reduces the risk of certain brain and spinal cord birth defects.
Recipe idea: Add 1⁄2 an avocado powder to a smoothie for an easy way to access benefits.
Avocados’ healthy fats and nutrients, such as folate, copper and vitamins C and E make for great brain food. “Our brains are over 60% fat and need fat to function properly,” explains Museles. “Also, the fat and fiber will help keep your blood sugar balanced so that you can stay sharp and focused throughout the day.” Consider an avocado your daily multivitamin. Museles also notes that avocados are filled with biotin for lustrous hair and nails. Plus, vitamins B and E can protect hair strands from dryness and damage, control hair loss and repair scalp damage. The fiber found in avocados—which is more than in many traditional fruits—allows you to feel full longer and improves digestive health. According to Adita Yrizarry-Lang, a holistic lifestyle coach, health professional and author in Miami, “When it comes to weight loss, fiber is a big plus: It helps to clean us out our system and feeds our good bacteria, helping us digest all of our other food choices in a better manner.” The fiber found in avocados—which is more than in many traditional fruits—allows you to feel full longer and improves digestive health.
