Avocado for Heart

This long-term study followed 110,487 nurses and health professional men and women over 30 years. At the start of the study all were free from cancer and any heart or circulatory conditions, and all participants reported their diets every four years.

Those who consumed two half-avocados per week to replace a like amount of margarine, butter, egg, yogurt, cheese, or processed meats were 16 to 21 percent less likely to have developed any adverse heart or circulatory conditions or events.

Doctors said these health benefits come from the mono- and poly-unsaturated fats in avocado that replace saturated fats. Avocado also provides fiber, folate, magnesium, and potassium.
