We all know how beneficial avocados are and how important it is to make them part of our diet. But until now we did not look at the avocado seeds as a resource that can strongly improve our health. We perceived it as useless except for propagation of new avocado plants.

Well, we were mistaken

In fact, about 70% of the antioxidant properties that an avocado has, are stored exactly in the seed. Lutein, a carotenoid that protects men from prostate tumors is also contained in the avocado seed as well as Glutathione that has the lead roll in the antioxidative process in the body. The high concentration of carotenoids makes the seed a powerful preventive measure and a good weapon against cancer.

It is good for the heart and the overall blood system

Monounsaturated fatty acids lower the bad cholesterol levels in the bloodstream thus lowering the risk of cardiovascular or similar health issues. They also reduce the arterial plaque.

Avocado seeds as aid to the immune system

As we said, there are many antioxidants found in the seed.  The procyanidins and the catechins have great properties which improve the productivity of the immune system and reduce swelling, stiffness and joint pain. Zink can also be found in the seeds, which promotes the immune response to disease.
