Have you been throwing away your Avocado seeds?
Avocado seeds are rich in polyphenols, a type of antioxidant also found in green tea, that provides a heap of health benefits.
The antioxidants found in avocado seeds may help reduce high cholesterol and blood pressure, making the humble avocado a seriously heart-healthy fruit.
They have traditionally been used in South America to help with digestive problems like gastric ulcers and dysentery as their high soluble fiber content helps support the growth of bacteria in the digestive tract.
Avocado seeds can also improve inflammation in the body, which reduces the risk of arthritis, heart disease, and cancer.
And there's more, as the simple avo seed can even help strengthen the immune system and has anti-microbial, and anti-fungal properties.
And just like the flesh of an avocado, the seed is a great source of vitamin C, essential for collagen production and healthy skin.
