Worried about your heart? Eat avocados to lower blood pressure, reduce triglycerides and slow development of arterial plaque, reduce chances of abnormal heart rhythm and heart attack and stroke. In fact, an avocado a day may reduce the chance of sudden cardiac death.
Avocados are full of oleic acid, a healthy fat that most people don’t get enough of. Cooking with avocado oil is very healthy as well since avocado fat doesn’t oxidize in heat – a process that makes oil potentially toxic.
