A nutritionist consulted by Revyuh talks about the benefits of this superfood that will help you strengthen your immunity. Besides being rich and cheap, you can find it in many stores in the markets.
During the pandemic, it is very important to keep our defences at a high level since it is our immunity that prevents us from catching the virus. It is also responsible for curing the disease if it took over our body.
To strengthen immunity and thus reduce the risk of contracting any type of virus, it is advisable to include avocado in your daily diet. It is a super-food that contains a complex of vitamins and fatty acids necessary for the proper functioning of the immune system.
“It is extremely useful for the immune system. It contains vitamin D, Omega fatty acids and vitamin E. Vitamins D and E are fat-soluble, and due to the fats of the avocado itself, they are absorbed correctly and quickly in our organism,” doctor says.
In addition, avocado is a good source of energy. It contains essential fatty acids that extend life, strengthen the cardiovascular system and participate in almost all processes within the body, including hormonal ones.
Serguienko advises consuming the fruit in the first half of the day. It has a lot of calories which will make you forget about hunger for a while. You can make a toast with avocado or add it in smoothies and salads. You can also replace the butter with the avocado in the sandwiches.
The nutritionist also shared some recommendations on how to choose a good avocado at the store.
“The most important thing when choosing an avocado is to see if there are any dark spots. This means that the oxidative process has already begun in the fruit itself. An avocado like this should not be bought, it should not even be on the shelf” he explained.
In addition, it is necessary to verify the place where the peduncle grows. If when you remove it underneath there is a green-yellow color, it is a good avocado. On the other hand, if everything is dark inside, it is not recommended to buy this fruit.
The expert warned that if you have liver problems, it is better to look for an alternative to avocado, like another greasy product.
