Avocado Uses and Health Benefits

Nature

The History of the Avocado
Avocado, also called “alligator pear” due to its tough green skin, is native to Central and South America, and has grown in these areas since 8,000 BC. It was introduced to Jamaica in the mid-17th century and spread through the tropical Asian regions in the mid-1800s.http://ceoec.ru/

It was only in the early 20th century when the avocado was introduced to the United States, specifically in California and Florida. Today, these tropical states are two of the major commercial producers of avocados, alongwith Mexico, the Dominican Republic, Brazil, and Colombia.

Avocado Health Benefits That You Probably Don’t Know About
Avocados are very low in sugar, making them one of the safest fruits to eat. But there is actually more to avocados than their low-fructose properties.

Avocados are rich in monounsaturated fat. As I’ve frequently mentioned, removing unhealthy grain carbs from your diet is one of the best ways to support your health and manage your weight. However, upon eliminating these carbs, you must increase your intake of healthy fats. Avocados are one of the most exceptional sources, along with coconut oil, organic raw butter, and raw nuts like almonds, walnuts, and pecans.

Personally, I eat a whole avocado almost every day, which I usually mix in my salad. This increases my healthy fat and calorie intake without increasing my protein or carbohydrate intake, which may have detrimental effects on my health.

Aside from providing healthy fats, avocados give you close to 20 essential nutrients, such as potassium, which helps balance your vitally important potassium to sodium ratio.
