Most Powerful Fruit To Lower Your Cholesterol
Today I’m going to reveal the most powerful fruit, clinically proven to lower your cholesterol in only 7 days.2
Now if you’ve been reading my articles, you’d know that I’m not a big fan of fruit because of the sugar content.
This is because the fructose sugar in fruits, can actually increase your blood pressure and cholesterol levels, while also increasing your risk for diabetes. All bad for your heart.
Anyway, if fruit isn’t really that good for your health – then why am I promoting “fruit” in today’s topic?
Well, the fruit I’m referring to is an Avocado! Now, most people call it a vegetable because it’s green. However, the avocado is technically a fruit, and even more specifically, a single-seeded berry.
Personally, I categorize an avocado under FATS because one medium size avocado (150 grams) has about1:
- 240 calories
- 12 calories (3 grams) from protein
- 12 calories (3 grams + 9 grams fiber) from carbohydrates
- 216 of calories (24 grams) being from fat (90% of the calories)
Now, the TYPE of fat is the key to avocado’s “cholesterol lowering” secret and I’ll get to that in a shortly. As far as clinical proof for improving your cholesterol…
One study2 saw a 16% decrease in total cholesterol after only 7 days of a diet high in monounsaturated fats from avocados and a 22% decrease of both the “bad” LDL-cholesterol and triglycerides, along with an 11% increase the “good” HDL cholesterol.
In a second study3, the participants saw an average drop of 14 points in “bad” LDL cholesterol with a higher avocado diet
The “Secret” Heart-Healthy Fat
Now, the reason for avocado’s working so well is that 66% of the fat is from monounsaturated fats!1
Most people like olive oil as the main source of monounsaturated fats. However, I don’t because most olive oil is rancid and processed. It’s “fake”. Most of the healthier, “extra virgin oils” break down at a lower heat temperature and thus, it’s best kept UNCOOKED and eaten raw.
My favorite monounsaturated fat to cook with is macadamia oil because it’s not processed very much and also has a high heat capacity, so it’s great for cooking.4
So if you want a healthier heart and lower your cholesterol, decrease your sugars and increase healthy monounsaturated fats from my favorite heart-healthy fruit, an avocado!
