More antioxidants than most fruits & veggies

Avocado seeds have more antioxidants than most fruits and vegetables (more, even, than most healing teas), and the seeds give you more soluble fiber than any other food! Additionally, avocado seeds have a nourishing, antioxidant-rich oil that lower high cholesterol and help prevent stroke and heart disease.
 
Eating avocado seeds is a great way to reduce inflammatory diseases in the body. Specifically, the avocado seed’s powerful benefits work to ease swelling in the gastrointestinal tract, and avocado seeds help relieve diarrhea and constipation naturally and effectively.
The antioxidants known as phenolic compounds in avocado seeds make it useful for soothing gastric ulcers. These compounds contain antibacterial and antiviral properties that make the seeds effective at preventing ulcers all along the lining of the digestive system.

5 Reasons to eat avocado seeds

1. Kills Cancer Cells: 70% of the antioxidants in avocados are found in the seeds. The seeds contain flavonol, a powerful antioxidant that helps to prevent and reduce tumor growth. A 2013 study published in Pharmaceutical Biology found avocado extract from the flesh caused leukemia cells to self-destruct. In a more recent study published in the peer-reviewed journal Cancer Research, researchers discovered that a compound found in avocado seed extract called avocatin B was effective against acute myeloid leukemia cells. In total, study researchers tested 800 natural health products against the human acute myeloid leukemia cells.

2. Strengthens The Immune System: Avocado seeds contain procyanidins and catechins. They have anti-inflammatory properties that reduce stiffness, swelling, joint pain and diseases. Flavonol in avocado also boosts the immune system and help protects from cold and flu.

3. Heals Digestive Issues: For centuries, avocado seeds have been used in South America to treat gastrointestinal tract issues, including gastric ulcers, constipation, and diarrhea. These anti-inflammatory seeds contain more soluble fibers than most other foods on our planet!

4. Protects Heart Health: Avocados are an excellent source of heart-healthy monounsaturated fat and thanks to their amino acid and dietary fiber content, the seeds can help lower cholesterol and prevent cardiovascular issues such as the formation of plaque, which can lead to strokes and heart attack

5. Live Longer, Feel Better: The seeds don’t just help you look younger, they help you feel younger too. Compounds in avocado seeds have the ability to reduce bone disease, joint discomfort, and aches and pains. Antioxidants neutralize free radicals that cause illness and premature aging. Avocados and their seeds, actually slow down the aging process because of their ability to synthesize collagen. Avocado seeds can lower blood glucose levels and help you maintain a healthy weight. Due to its high content of good fats, you will stay satiated for longer, meaning you won’t be munching on snacks all day long.

How to eat the seed

Simple instructions:

The next time you eat avocados, keep the seeds and wash them. Dry them with a paper towel and put them into a dehydrator or oven to bake it. Heat the oven to 250 F (120 C) and bake the seeds for 2 hours, till the outer skin of the seed cracks. Discard the outer skin.
 
The seeds will now be soft enough that you can use a knife to cut it into smaller pieces. Throw them into your blender and blend them into powder form.
 
You can use the powder still in its moist form, or lightly roast it and store them away dry (keep longer). Your moist powder may appear whitish, or when roasted may appear orange in color.

Now you can use your avocado powder in any number of ways. Sprinkle the powder into your juices, smoothies, oatmeals, soups, salads and in just about any meals. Or simply put half a teaspoon of the powder into a cup, pour hot water, and make a tea infusion. Let steep for about 10 minutes.

 
Avocado seed powder is like your own super-healthy supplement powder. So next time you eat avocados, remember to save the seeds!

Curcumin Advanced (30 per bottle): 30 Day Supply

mercola-turmeric

You have many available options when searching for a turmeric/curcumin supplement.

Don't make the mistake many could be making by just selecting the cheapest formula without scrutinizing what's in it (and what's not).

That's why Dr. Mercola's research team helped create a fantastic curcumin formula we believe exceeds all of our stringent selection criteria.

Curcumin Advanced:

  • Utilizes advanced technology to enhance bioavailability – Only a couple percent of curcumin is typically absorbed. Curcumin Advanced uses sustained-release technology and a self-emulsifying system to ensure the curcumin is highly bioavailable.
  • Is sourced from raw turmeric material containing at least 95% curcuminoids
  • Delivers three curcuminoids found in turmeric – Curcumin is the principal curcuminoid (active ingredient) in turmeric. But there are also two more, demethylated curcuminoids (demethoxycurcumin and bisdemethoxycurcumin)
  • Avoids unnecessary fillers, additives, and risky excipients – It makes little sense to have questionable, unnecessary ingredients in the formula.

Curcumin Advanced can only be purchased right from Mercola.com, directly on the site and nowhere else.

Order Curcumin Advanced today to start taking advantage of everything that this extraordinary spice has to offer.
