We already taught you how to make avocado oil, avocado mask, avocado leaf tea, and even tips to choose the perfect avocado at the market. Have you watched any of these videos?
But today, you will see the benefits of this amazing fruit.
Once seen as a villain, today, avocado is a health hero. Because it is a rich source of fats and calories, the fruit acts as a natural medicine in our bodies.
So, you think you know all about avocado. But, have you ever heard of avocado seed tea? Let's check out its benefits!
The seed, also known as the pit, is rich in bioactive phytochemicals and antioxidants and has the medicinal properties of the skin, flesh, and leaves.
But it has higher concentrations of essential fatty acids than other parts of the plant and more tannins (which makes the pit bitter).
And these are the reasons you shouldn't throw the seed away:
It is antioxidant
Since it is rich in antioxidants, the pit protects cells against free radicals.
Helps with digestion
The digestive system is made of many organs that, once inflamed, change the digestive process.
Improves the gastrointestinal system
The avocado pit can help with different stomach issues and alleviates diarrhea and inflammation in the gastrointestinal tract, preventing gastric ulcers and bacterial and viral diseases.
Strengthens the immune system
Another benefit of an avocado pit is increasing our defenses, that is, strengthening the immune system.
It helps prevent colds and flu
It also has anti-inflammatory properties that are good for people who suffer from joint issues, like arthritis.
Helps with weight loss
Many people suffer from anxiety-induced binge eating. In this case, avocado seeds are great for reducing the craving for foods out of meal-time and, consequently, help with weight loss.
Now that you know the benefits, what about making some avocado seed tea?
Do not consume the seed raw and avoid excesses since it may cause nausea, vomiting, and gastrointestinal problems.
Suspend the use if you feel any adverse reactions after consuming anything with avocado seed.
This is a signal that avocado seed isn't good for your body.
