Make a Fat-Burning Chocolate Avocado Pudding in a Few Minutes
Who thought that healthy food like avocado can make one of the most delicious desserts ever? Well, not only that it’s delicious, but it’s also one of the healthiest desserts out there.
But, what makes avocado and the various meals and desserts prepared from it so healthy?
According to Avocado Source, avocado contains plant sterols such as beta-sitosterol that are responsible for its powerful antiestrogenic properties.
Thanks to these properties, avocado can help block the estrogen receptors in our cells, and in that way reduce the absorption rates of estrogen. As a result, the progesterone levels in women are increased, and testosterone levels in men are decreased.
Another great benefit of avocados is the ability to protect us from free radical damage. This benefit is thanks to the excellent anti-aging properties found in the avocado’s oil and flesh.
The wonderful properties of avocado can penetrate deep inside our cell structure and stimulate energy production in mitochondria. This, in turn, improves the function of cells even if they are not threatened by free radicals.
The central part of our cells, also known as mitochondria, uses nutrients to produce energy for each cell. That’s why it’s very important in the fight against free radicals.
But, one bad thing about this crucial part of the cells is that it can produce unstable, self-destructive chemicals. What they do is damage different parts of cells, including mitochondria itself. This has a huge impact on the aging process.
Therefore, many scientists are trying to find a solution that would reverse this damage. It turns out, they found it in…drum roll please – avocado oil!
So, it’s time to stop avoiding this extremely healthy food as it could be the most powerful, natural tool against premature aging.
Here’s how the lead study author, Dr. Cortez-Rojo, explains avocado’s amazing effects:
Avocado oil accelerates the respiration in the central part of the cell, mitochondria, which ensures proper usage of nutrients for the production of energy even when they are under attack from free radicals.
What’s more, this also reduces the production of harmful free radicals.
There’s more to why avocados are so healthy…
They contain plenty of healthy raw fat and over twenty essential nutrients, including folate, fiber, potassium, sodium, B-vitamins, vitamin E, boron, calcium, iron, and magnesium.
Avocados ensure proper absorption of fat-soluble nutrients from fruits and veggies, such as beta-carotene and lutein. Also, their antibacterial and antifungal properties improve the immune system.
Avocados contain lecithin – an amino acid that helps balance weight, boost brain function, and prevent liver overload.
