Both men and women were shown to have a lower risk of heart attacks if they ate avocados instead of butter or cheese or processed meats.
In comparison to those who avoided or seldom consumed avocados, consuming at least two servings a week lowered the chances of a heart attack by 21%.” In contrast, research reported Wednesday in the Journal of the American Heart Association did not find an equal effect in lowering the risk for stroke.
Lorena Pacheco, who is a postdoctoral nutrition researcher from Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health, described half an avocado or half cup of avocado, which generally weights 80 grams, as a portion of avocado.
Avocados may offer health advantages, but no one item can be the answer to eating a nutritious diet on a regular basis.
Two other studies were included in the research, which included more than 68,000 women and 41,000 men. Each person entered the study with no history of cancer or cardiovascular illness, and they completed dietary surveys every four years for the duration of the study.

Incorporate Avocado Into Your Daily Routine

Avocados are also a great source of vitamins C, E, K and B-6, as well as riboflavin, niacin, folate, pantothenic acid, magnesium and potassium. They also provide lutein, beta-carotene and omega-3 fatty acids.

Avocados can be enjoyed in a variety of ways. While they’re often eaten on their own or paired with other ingredients to make guacamole or salads, Avocados can be used as an egg substitute in vegan cooking since they’re rich in fat like eggs:

  • Toast whole-grain bread, then top with an avocado spread made with mashed avocado and chopped tomatoes.
  • Add slices of avocado to tomato and onion sandwiches or burgers.
  • Top your morning toast with mashed avocado instead of butter or margarine.
  • Make guacamole by mashing up avocados with diced tomatoes and onions. Serve it as a dip with raw vegetables or baked tortilla chips.
