This incredibly delicious avocado pudding will definitely be one of your favorite desserts.
It is prepared quickly and easily, and it provides numerous health benefits.
Namely, avocados include plant sterols, like beta-sitosterol, which have potent antiestrogenic properties. They obstruct the estrogen receptors in the cells and lower the rates of absorption of this hormone, while raising the levels of testosterone in men and progesterone in women.
Why avocado anti-estrogens are a good thing
Chemicals in our environment and personal care products leach into our air and food, wreaking havoc with our endocrine systems.
We are inundated with synthetic estrogens and daily stresses that cause an increase in estrogen production.
In men, too much estrogen can suppress testosterone, making matters worse.
We all have some estrogen and testosterone—the key is balance: women naturally have more estrogen and less testosterone than men and men have more testosterone and less estrogen than women.
When hormone levels get out of whack, unpleasant things can happen.
Unrefined avocado oil has been shown to increase soluble collagen content in skin due to antioxidant activity.
What’s special about avocado’s antioxidants is that they are able to penetrate cell walls, inhibiting oxidation within skin cells.
Furthermore, these fruits are high in healthy raw fat, which is deficient in numerous people, as well as 20 other essential nutrients like:
- Vitamin E
- Folic acid
- Potassium (in a doubled amount than in a banana)
They are also rich in amino acid lecithin, which balances weight, improves the function of the brain, and prevents liver overload.
Also, these fruits boost the ability of the body to absorb fat-soluble nutrients from other vegetables and fruits, like lutein, alpha, and beta-carotene. Avocados have potent antifungal and antibacterial properties which strengthen the immune system.
