Don’t Throw That Avocado Seed Away Before Reading Its Benefits Here

A video claimed that the avocado seed is the most nutrient-dense part of the fruit went viral on about March 2016. Well, unless you’ve been living under the rock, I bet u already know the abundant benefits of avocado itself. Avocados offer nearly 20 vitamins and minerals in every serving, including potassium (helps control blood pressure), lutein (good for your eyes), and folate (crucial for cell repair and during pregnancy). Avocados are a good source of B vitamins, which help you fight off infection and diseases.

But the seed? After cutting open a perfectly ripe avocado and scooping out the delicious creamy flesh, our next move will be to throw the seed away.

But, according to nutrition experts, the avocado seed contains amazing 70 percent of the nutritional benefits of the fruit! It contains soluble fiber and has strong anti-inflammatory properties. A study published in Food Chemistry said that the seeds showed a much higher antioxidant activity and phenolic content than the edible portions.

Dr. Tom Wu — who has earned the “World Famous Doctor” award from the United Nations for his breakthroughs with diabetes and cancer, and the “Remarkable Contribution” award from the American Cancer Society — said that, “Any heart disease patient must eat the avocado including the seed.”

So, what are some of the most important benefits of this avocado seed?

• Reduce inflammation and ease joint pain
