Avocado Seed Benefits

Avocado seed benefits include anti-inflammatory, antiviral, and antibacterial properties that have been widely documented to lower blood pressure, cholesterol levels, and prevent indigestion. They've even been used as an all-natural solution to candida, killing off its yeast causer. Finally, avocado oil provides powerful antioxidant properties which slow aging processes while reverse cell damage from toxic chemicals.

Ethnopharmacological studies among Aztec and Maya populations reveal that decoctions made from seeds were commonly used to treat mycotic infections, parasitic infestations, diabetes and digestive irregularity. This may be because polyphenols present in seeds help safeguard health at a cellular level by protecting cells against oxidative stress that leads to chronic conditions like heart disease or cancer.

Avocado seeds should ideally be eaten raw; however, since that is sometimes difficult or impossible, another great way to enjoy their nutritional value is roasting and pulverizing them in an oven for several hours with only minimal preparation required. Start by placing one seed in a glass of water so its top end points upwards, before taking three toothpicks and poking them at slight downward angles into it with three toothpicks.

Once separated from its flesh, seeds should be put through a food processor or grinder or high-powered blender and ground into powder. As this powder will likely contain bitter tannins that could potentially upset some individuals' stomachs, try taking small doses at first to build tolerance and build your tolerance level up slowly.
