Health benefits of the avocado seed
The avocado is also known as a super-food fruit because of the fountain of nutrients it contains.

Here below are some of the most important benefits of the powerful avocado seed:
1. The avocado seed is rich in antioxidants:
A team of researchers from the Pennsylvania State University have proven that the avocado seed contains more than 70% of the phenolic antioxidants found in the entire avocado fruit! These antioxidants play an important role for reducing cholesterol levels. But there is more to it: by consuming the seed you will reduce the high blood pressure, reduce the inflammation level, and the risk of getting diabetes at a young age. You should also know that antioxidants are the “safeguards” of your immune system.
2. The avocado seed is good for the heart:
This fruit seed has very good anti-inflammatory properties. If you prepare the avocado seed for consummation, you will prevent plaque buildup in your arteries. The avocado seed is loaded with heart-healthy monounsaturated fatty acids. Thus, you will reduce the risk of a stroke and a heart attack.
3. The avocado seed is good for joint pains:
Because of its strong anti-inflammatory properties, the avocado seed also helps people who suffer from acute arthritic pains. It is a great aid in alleviating joint pain. It also reduces the risk of cancerous developments in the body, and other inflammation-based diseases. This valuable seed contains anti- microbial, fungicidal, and even insecticidal properties.
