The avocado fruit is known for its high nutritional value. However, the popularity of the avocado pit (or avocado seed) is a new phenomenon.
It may seem useless, but most of the health benefits come from the flavonoids and minerals contained in the pit.
Researchers from Pennsylvania State University (Penn State) say that the overlooked avocado pits provide an extract that may have important anti-inflammatory properties.
Over the past decade, Penn State College researchers have been extracting and developing an active ingredient from avocado pits.
The researchers explain that it makes sense to use avocado seeds in this way because they're rich in polyphenols. Polyphenols are natural substances with antioxidant activity that can help protect health at the cellular level.
Since the avocado seed contains a lot of calcium, it improves your bone mass and protects you from osteoporosis.
In addition, the antioxidant contained in the avocado seed has anti-inflammatory properties, which is especially helpful for arthritic pain.
Besides, certain proteins in the avocado pit can help repair tissue damage caused by oxidative stress.
You can enjoy all the benefits of avocado pit for back and joint pain by making a tea with it.
