A recent study reveals other benefits that can be given by avocados. Studies conducted by Frontiers in Aging Neuroscience found that brain inflammation diseases can be reduced, even cured if someone regularly consumes avocados.
The content of healthy fats in avocados and a substance called lutein is the key to its remarkable benefits.
In the study, scientists measured the levels of lutein and brain activity from 60 adults aged 25-45 years while they were in heavy duty. The result is that people who eat foods rich in lutein have the same brain performance with younger people.
It should be noted that in the brain there is a level of lutein which is a carotenoid, which works to protect the organ. The more lutein, the brain will be protected from inflammation, and its performance becomes better.
“Getting older age, people will experience decreased cognitive function (brain),” said Anne Walk, one of the researchers.
For that, she suggested that older people increase consumption of foods rich in lutein such as avocados, eggs, and various green leafy vegetables.
Not only good for the brain, avocados previously been known as a fruit that can lower cholesterol levels and beneficial for heart health.
Healthier with natural ingredients better than treat with chemicals, is not it? Let’s live healthily.
