While scientists are rightly looking at the next big superfood, anyone else should focus on getting as many tones out of what is already well-known. Research has now shown that avocados are more valuable than fruit, if not more.
Because avocado seeds are so difficult to open, the majority of avocados enthusiasts do not bother paying them high interest, and few recognize the secret benefits. But nothing worthwhile is easy, and the blessing of avocado seeds is worth the effort.
The Daily Superfood Love is well aware of some of the things that even the laziest among us can tolerate: more than 70 per cent of the total amount of avocados in avocados. So, the porridge we used to make a simple meal represents a small portion of it from avocados. Here are some examples of what seeds can do for you.
Arthritis and joint pain:
The Daily Superfood Love reviews that the seeds of avocados (and pores and skin) contain catechins and procyanidins, which are antioxidants that reduce inflammation, swelling and stiffness in the joints – a wonderful weapon for arthritis.
There is plenty of fibre in avocado seeds, says Daily Superfood Love, which usually helps you feel happier in your diet. Also, they help to keep your blood sugar under control, which stimulates you daily to consume all the candy in your home.
Skin and hair
Antioxidants in avocado seeds can help repair damage to your skin cells and create collagen, Daily Superfood Love suggests. Also, Step to Health claims it is great for dry, dandruff-heavy hair. Combining the seed contents with castor oil can help to lubricate your hair.
How to get all these benefits
So how exactly do you get that hard shell inside? First, take the seeds of your avocado 1/2 by smashing it with a knife. Turn the knife and throw the seeds away without destroying the fruit’s flesh. The Daily Superfood Love then recommends going into the seed with a strong, sharp knife swing and cutting it into pieces, although that technique can be difficult and dangerous.
Livestrong recommends putting the seed in a food processor – however, once again, you will want something more robust and reliable to perform the task. Powder resulting from chopped seeds can be used in smoothies, like the example above. The step to health refers to seed milling and the use of the resulting infusions.
One little tip for the rest: Since your body is not used to eating avocado seeds, you may first experience some “gastric distress”, Science Update reviews. That seed is not a fitness risk overall – on the contrary.
