Consider eating an avocado on a daily basis to decrease your cholesterol.
A research conducted at Pennsylvania State University involved 45 obese people, aged between 21 and 70. Participants were divided into three groups, and each group had a different cholesterol decreasing diet.
Participants in the first group had a low-fat diet, the second group had a moderate-fat diet and the third group of participants followed a diet regimen based on fat coming from avocados. These three diets differed in many aspects.
Wonder what did the research show? Each of the diets provided good cholesterol results, but the avocado-based diet has shown the optimal results.
Avocado diet lowers cholesterol by 13.5 milligrams per deciliter (mg/dL) , while moderate-fat diet decreases cholesterol by 8.3 milligrams per deciliter. Low-fat diet showed a decline of 7.4 milligrams per deciliter (mg/dL) .
Yes, it is that simple, eat more avocados!
