Avocado, scientifically known as Persea Americana is a medicinal heaven. Its leaf and seed extracts are popularly used all over the world as an antibiotic, for the treatment of diarrhea and in many other medicinal applications.
Not many people know of Avocado as a treatment for lowering cholesterol, but it certainly is a remedy in this case. Avocados contain “good” unsaturated (mono- and poly) fats that do not raise cholesterol (80%). It is an excellent source of folate (folic acid), a B vitamin that reduces the risk of serious types of birth defects, heart disease, and cancers.
It is a common knowledge that a high cholesterol level in your body can lead to a whole bunch of diseases which include heart disease and stroke. The reason for this is the cholesterol which clogs your arteries (blood carrying vessels) all over the body. Some of them present in the heart, when clogged with fatty cholesterol deposits cause the blood pressure to increase, which in turn causes the heart to pump harder. If not alleviated, it may cause you a heart attack.

There are 2 types of cholesterols–LDL and HDL. Out of both of them, LDL is the one which is considered a bad cholesterol and thereby many of the modern diet such as coke, burgers and other such fast food can be blamed to the increase in amount of LDL in your body. Avocados are a source of monounsaturated fat, which is good for you when eaten in moderation. They’re also rich in vitamins, minerals, fiber, compounds that block cholesterol absorption. A lot of modern research these days and modern studies has concluded that Avocados help in lowering the bad cholesterol level to a great extent thereby preventing cardiovascular diseases, heart attacks and strokes.
