Avocados are exotic fruits that we’ve recently got the courage to try. And I’m not only talking about tasting the raw fruit, but also integrating it in our regular dishes. But it’s better to do that rather late than never.
Of course, integrating avocados in our eating habits made some changes in our bodies regarding certain diseases. This is actually what attracted scientists attention and why they decided to examine it.
Specialists agree that avocados, as many exotic fruits, have many carbohydrates and fats, good ones actually. But the studies have shown that we don’t really receive these large quantities of benefic substances from the inside of the green fruit. It appears that the healthiest part of the avocados is in fact the seed.
When the researchers from the University of Texas Rio Grande Valley made a rather interesting experiment, the results were astonishing. While studying the fruits, they discovered some molecules that could help treating some diseases.
Debasish Bandyopadhyay, the lead researcher even claimed that the molecules found during the experiment could have a massive and positive role in treating diseases such as cancer, heart illnesses so on and so forth. It does sound pretty good for a fruit, right? Scientists think even further and hope that this is another step towards finding better medicine.
Even though the discovery of the nano insights of a fruit might not seem that important, it is actually a big step forward. Many people choose alternative medicine when trying to treat a certain disease and this fruit could be added to their diet. But they shouldn’t however count only on a fruit to get rid of a serious disease. It is highly important to try as much as we can to have a pretty healthy way of living, that implies mostly healthy eating habits and sports.
