Avocados are super fruit when it comes to nutrition, not many people talk about the rest of the plant. Avocado leaves have numerous health benefits we can access when they are brewed in a tea. However, the seeds have been found to contain more than 70% of the antioxidant content in each avocado, making it an excellent source of nutrition with multiple health benefits. Research is being conducted on what potential health benefits avocado tea could have as a treatment for health issues such as cold, flu, stomachache, arthritis, and high blood pressure.
Treat Kidney Stones:
Avocados have a high potassium content that decreases urinary calcium excretion, and lowers the risk of stones forming in the kidneys. A cup of avocado tea contains alkaloids, flavonoids, and saponins, all of which are potent substances thought to help break down kidney stones. Research indicates that drinking 2 cups of avocado tea daily can reduce or even eliminate kidney stones. Most people see results within 10 days.
Rich Source of Antioxidants: The National University of Singapore conducted a study in 2003 to observe the antioxidant content in the seeds avocados, mangoes and other tropical fruit. It found that the seeds of the fruit contained 70% more antioxidant value than the fruit itself which, if eaten, can help to prevent oxidative stress at a cellular level in the body. Antioxidants reduce cellular aging, fight inflammation and improve the condition of the entire body.
Helps to Prevent Cancer: Decades of research have gone into finding a cure for multiple types of cancer, but one study that has recently gained attention is the link between avocado seeds and the prevention of Acute Myeloid Leukemia (AML). AML originates in bone marrow and, once developed, spreads to the bloodstream in the form of leukemia. In April 2015 scientists from the University of Waterloo and Mount Sinai Hospital in Canada teamed up with scientists from the University of Perugia in Italy to study the effect of various untested compounds on AML cancer cells, and avocado pits proved to be the most effective. A compound known as avocatin B was found to not only destroy AML cancer cells but also to have zero negative side effects on healthy blood cells, something which current cancer treatments cannot include.
Breast Cancer Protection: Avocado oil is rich in oleic acid, which is used to decrease the risk of breast cancer in numerous studies.
Improves the Health and Appearance of Skin: The intense burst of antioxidants in each avocado pit helps to reduce oxidative stress caused by the sun’s harmful UV rays as well as pollution, chemicals and our modern environment. This helps to reduce the visible signs of aging, as well as rejuvenating the tone and condition of skin tissue.Avocado seeds also contain nourishing oils which help to smooth wrinkles and improve the elasticity of skin, making you look younger and healthier in just one simple step.
