It’s one of the fruits with highest rate calorie, but is also one of the 10 best foods for detox diets. This is because the avocado is fat, but in the right way.

In fact it is full of healthy monounsaturated fats and essential fatty acids (7 varieties, including omega-3 and omega-6), the “good” dietary fats incredibly health benefits: they are useful to cellular production, help to lower cholesterol – reducing the risk of heart disease and stroke – and serve as a source of energy that can be used as fuel by the body. They are the same fats whose action is anti-hunger, has been widely analyzed as consumed before meals those fats can facilitate the feeling of satiety.


Avocado is also an invaluable source of vitamins and minerals: vitamin B5, B6, K, B1. B2, E and C, as well as folic acid, copper, phosphorus, magnesium, potassium, manganese, iron and zinc). This group of substances added to the fibers of fruit (36% more compared to other fruits and vegetables), stimulates your metabolism, so you burn more fat.

Among the many virtues of this fruit, stand out the fabulous potential detoxifying and antioxidant properties. It’s rich in substances that help cells to break free from the presence of the dreaded free radicals and thus slow down aging. Avocado contains glutathione, a essential molecule for the disposal of harmful toxins and chemicals from our body. The good fats help the body absorb vitamin A because of that the avocado is a powerful antioxidant and can be involved in a natural detoxification process.


Well, the avocado detoxifies and provides al lot of energy. The perfect combination for staying fit and feeling good.

I have already said that I am a fanatic of juices, and the avocado green smoothie detox is among my favorites. Especially in the morning, before breakfast, along with some celery, a cucumber, fresh ginger, apple and / or pear. Insert it into your daily diet and in a very short time you’ll verify its benefits, even on skin and hair. You can combine it with fruits and vegetables of your choice, by resorting to the mixer from the kitchen, but with a little ingenuity: mix it with fruits or vegetables with more “character” that are difficult to chop, combining it always with something made from more juicy pulp.
