A new study published in the Journal of Nutrition shows that this fruit I'm going to tell you about in a moment is effective in lowering cholesterol levels - especially the bad type of cholesterol, known as LDL.
LDL is known to clog up arteries with a plaque-like substance and this can lead to heart disease, heart attacks and strokes.
This cholesterol-busting fruit is so delicious and surprisingly versatile, you'll want to make it a staple in your kitchen!
Study shows avocados could be your "statin pill" for your heart!
In the study, 45 participants were put on three different diets for five weeks and then swapped over. One of the groups ate one avocado per day.
The researchers measured cholesterol levels of the participants and the group on the avocado diet for five weeks lowered their LDL cholesterol, and specifically oxidised LDL - the most dangerous kind.
LDL cholesterol is a tough "nut to crack", but avocados are so rich in nutritional and healthy oils and fatty acids, and antioxidants, which makes them highly effective at targeting this specifically dangerous type of cholesterol.
And the best is, avocados can substitute a number of unhealthy ingredients in your kitchen, making it possible for you to enjoy healthy treats that are amazingly delicious!
