This is What Happens to Your Body When You Eat an Avocado a Day

People usually say, “an apple a day keeps the doctor away!” But, we say “an avocado a day keeps the doctor away, forever!”

One avocado a day will increase your healthy fat and calorie intake without seriously increasing your protein or carbohydrate intake. It will also help you to balance your vitally important potassium to sodium ratio.

You Get Better Insulin Control

The glucose level in your body is the main factor for your metabolism. The insulin is so powerful and it removes any excess glucose so that you don’t suffer from serious problems.

The excess glucose can be stored in the body and in your muscle tissue, but after filling those areas up as much as possible, insulin removes the glucose to fat cells.

You improve your skin health

Avocados contain a fair amount of biotin, a B-complex vitamin which helps your skin to stay hydrated from the inside out, said Ava Shamban – dermatologist, and the author of “Heal Your Skin.” the dermatologist points out that these fatty acids promote the formation of ceramides, which are liquid molecules very important for plumping up the skin and keeping it healthy. This is why avocado belongs in the group of “super skin foods”.

You Preserve Your Heart Health

According to the researchers, avocado is among the healthiest foods which protect your heart and cardiovascular health. It is found that eating one-half of a fresh medium Hass avocado with a hamburger significantly inhibited the production of the inflammatory compound Interleukin-6 (IL-6), compared to eating a burger without fresh avocado.

Fresh avocado doesn’t raise your blood sugar levels, and also doesn’t increase triglyceride levels beyond what is observed when eating the burger alone.

You feel fuller for longer, curbing hunger

Avocados can help you to stop snacking all the time. It is proved that meals which include avocados cause you to feel full, and it takes away the need to eat more and more.
