What are the benefits of avocado bone?

In recent years, the avocado has become one of the most sought-after fruits by consumers, both for its flavour and for the nutritional properties it offers.

An essential part of this fruit is avocado pulp, which is available at Caña Nature, made with fresh produce from the Costa Tropical of Granada.

This avocado pulp can be eaten directly or can be combined with other ingredients to prepare well-known recipes such as guacamole, which Caña Nature offers in its traditional style and also in the vitamin A-enriched option.

However, within the fruit we find the avocado pit, which has been the subject of numerous debates and even scientific studies on its benefits and the gastronomic options it offers.

Benefits of the avocado pit

As more and more research is done on the avocado pit, more and more potential benefits of the avocado seed are being identified that could be useful for our bodies.

Here are some of the benefits most commonly associated with the pit:

  • It is high in fibre, so it can aid digestion and combat constipation.
  • It contains oleic acid, which can increase the levels of HDL in the body, which helps to combat bad cholesterol.
  • It also contains vitamins A and C, as well as antioxidants, which can be an effective ally against the signs of premature ageing.
  • These antioxidants can also be useful for preventing various diseases and for improving the immune system in general.
  • In fact, they can even fight free radicals, which cause cellular oxidation.
  • Other benefits associated with avocado pits are based on improving circulation, protecting cardiovascular health or protecting the stomach from diseases caused by bacteria.

Avocado pit contraindications

The avocado pit is still the subject of several studies to confirm its benefits and also to expose possible contraindications.

At present, it is not recommended for pregnant or breastfeeding women, as well as for patients taking anticoagulants.

It should also be borne in mind that its abuse can lead to constipation, so it is recommended for sporadic use.

Finally, it is also recommended that the avocado pit be used only as other seeds in the preparation of infusions, given that its consumption in pieces or grated, as indicated in some recipes, does not yet have scientific backing to confirm its benefits.

How to prepare avocado kernel tea

Avocado pit tea or infusion is the best way to take advantage of the seed of this very fashionable fruit.

To prepare it, first wash the seed to remove the avocado pulp. Then cut it in four and remove the outer skin.

You can combine the avocado pit with a little cinnamon in a litre of water. Bring to the boil for about 15 minutes over a low heat and then let it cool down so that your infusion is ready.

The ideal time to drink avocado kernel tea is after a heavy meal, as this is when you will best notice its beneficial effects on digestion.
