WELLNESS WEDNESDAY: 8 AWESOME Benefits of eating Avocados!

Here is something y’all probably didn’t know about me… I LOVE Avocados! Like really Love them! I eat them on almost everything and by themselves. I use avocado shampoo/conditioner and lotion. I love the smell and would so buy an avocado air freshener if there was one. Avocados has many benefits to your health and beauty that you’ll want to eat them everyday.
 
1. Rich in nutrients
Avocados are an incredibly rich source of nutrients and offer nearly 20 vitamins and minerals in every serving. We all need our vitamins, right?
 
2. Manage your weight
A study has shown that eating just half an avocado with lunch helps overweight people feel satisfied  and full for longer after eating.
3. Prevent Diabetes
Avocados help regulate blood sugar levels, which reduces the risk of diabetes.
 
4. Eye Health
A study has shown that avocados are the best source of Lutein and Zeaxanthin, which is good for your eye health!
 
5. Skin & Hair
With healthy fats and inflammation fighting properties, avacados can give you smooth skin and shiny hair. One avocado contains over 20% of your daily dose of vitamin E- this helps prevent the effect of aging.
 
6. Strong Bones
Avocados contain a good-helping bone-healthy nutrients including vitamin K, copper, and folate.
 
7. Pain Relief
Avocado extract has been proven to reduce symptoms of arthritis of the bones. Because it’s inflammatory benefits, it may even relieve inflammatory-related aches and pains as well.
 
8. Important for expecting Moms
Avocados are loaded with folate, potassium, vitamin C and vitamin B6. Folate plays a role in healthy development of the fetus in early pregnancy, while vitamin B6 helps with the baby’s tissue and brain growth AND it eases morning sickness!
No wonder why they call avocados a super food! Some of the other benefits are, digestion improvement, blood pressure control, boots of energy, immune improvement, enhances your mood, brain food, and avocados are very versatile and just taste delicious. [BLT with avocado is my favorite!]
 
One of my favorite shampoo/conditioners with avocado in it is, Garnier Whole Blends-Avocado oil and Shea Butter. And my favorite lotion is ST. Ives Daily Hydrating- with vitamin E and Avocado. I highly recommend these.
 
Unfortunately, I am the only one in my household who likes avocados… Maybe that’s why I’ve got more brains thank anyone in my household. LOL. I will get my daughter to love them, mark my words.
 
Ready? Set… GO EAT AVOCADOS AND BE HEALTHY!
