How to Prevent High Blood Pressure, & Maintain a Healthy Heart with Avocado

The first time it was brought to my knowledge that avocado pear had a lot in store for the heart was when someone told of how the seed of this endearing fruit meal looks so much like the human heart; and behold it was so! We were equally informed or reminded that in nature it has always been like that; most fruits and vegetables have been so designed to announce themselves as regards what organs of the body they hold attachments for in terms of remedy. In practical science, according to Keri Gans, a renowned registered nutritional health scientist and author of The Small Chang Diet,Avocados are super high in heart-healthy monounsaturated fat, and also contain other important nutrients like vitamins E and C.”

Heart-friendly Avocado Pear

And so your nourishing avocado pear has so much in common with your heart; it is loaded with all the natural goodness necessary for your heart in that it is able to unblock your blood vessels and free your heart from undue pressure. Avocado is one of the richest sources of monounsaturated fats which in fact go to fight against unhealthy fats or cholesterol in the system. Thus by this singular attribute, your favourite ‘fruit meal’ is able to with time, clear out your arterial walls of plaque caused by unhealthy fats.

Unblock your artery

Also, with a combined nutrient of healthy oils, dietary fibre, magnesium, potassium and essential vitamins as well as antioxidants, avocado pear is able to combat arteriosclerosis effectively, and maintain a normal blood pressure thereby leading to a perfectly healthy heart. And so this is why nutritional health experts are advocating that instead of you loading your ‘whole meal’ bread or sandwiches with your normal greasy butter or margarine, or fatty mayonnaise, you should rather add some slices of nutritious avocado instead.

Get that good rhythm going with Avocado Pear

The same should go for your salad; instead of your regular salad cream or mayonnaise try also adding a few slices of avocado instead as dressing to it. For all you may care, research has found that if you consume your avocado on a daily basis, your blood cholesterol is bound to improve greatly while triglycerides and LDL have been found to  lower considerably; there will also be a marked  rise in HDL which is the good fat or cholesterol that aids in the unclogging of your arteries. This action of avocado resulting in increased HDL is what leads to decreased risk of coronary heart disease and atherosclerosis.
