We all know Cinco de Mayo is not complete without guacamole made of avocados. But did you know avocados could help complete your nutrient needs for heart health and hormonal balance? Yes, avocados are a bonified “superfood” with the power to promote virility in men and vitality in women.
For thousands of years, avocados have been a staple food in diets throughout Mexico, Central America, and South America. Today, several varieties of avocados are harvested right here in Florida. According to the Florida-based physicians and experts at Weight Success Centers, avocados could be one of the best nutrient-rich foods to add to your diet plan.
Delicious Reasons to Adore Avocados
Creamy and luscious avocados are virtually sodium-free and cholesterol-free. A tree fruit, avocados offer high amounts of oleic acid, which is a monounsaturated fatty acid (those are the good kind). Healthy fats coupled with folate, potassium, magnesium, fiber, and an array of vitamins make avocados a heart-healthy choice.
Remarkably, avocados could also help you lose weight when used as a substitute for less healthy foods. Health-conscious people are using avocados as a healthy substitute for butter and oil in an array of baked goods. Avocados also serve as a substitute for dairy in creamy desserts like chocolate pudding. This adds to the long list of reasons we simply adore avocados.
Best of all, avocados are easy to enjoy. Simply cut long-ways in half, pop out its single seed, and use a spoon to scoop out the green goodness. Avocados go perfectly as a sidekick to any Mexican dish, and everyone loves them mashed in guacamole with tomatoes, onions, and spices. Also, avocados are delicious when added to salads or sandwiches.
Foods and Supplements for Balancing Hormones
With healthy monosaturated fats, minerals, and vitamins, avocados can offer vital nutrients and physical benefits for relieving symptoms associated with hormonal imbalance. Depending on the person, hormonal issues may include fatigue, irritability, mood swings, low sex drive, or weight gain. Nutrient-rich diet choices are an important part of managing symptoms of hormonal imbalance, erectile dysfunction, menstrual cycles, menopause, and other conditions.
In addition to nutritional healing, men and women can benefit from supplements or therapies to balance hormones, such as BioTE pellets, a natural type of Bioidentical Hormone Therapy. As with any supplement or treatment, results and benefits will vary depending on the person.
