The Health Benefits Of Guacamole – Plus Guacamole Recipe

Today’s article discusses the health benefits of guacamole, plus a quick and tasty guacamole recipe.

But first, what is guacamole?

Guacamole is a thick dip made primarily from mashing avocadoes and mixing with chopped tomato, onion, lime juice, cilantro, apple cider vinegar and chilies. For extra taste season with salt, pepper and cumin.

Anyway, onto the health benefits of guacamole…

The avocado contains a carotenoid called Lutein, magnesium and monosaturated fats. The avocado helps to fight many forms of cancer (including breast and prostate) and improves skin tone. Some of the substances in avocado help to absorb nutrients in other foods.

The lime juice contains potassium and properties that strengthen the immune system. Research also shows that lime helps to cleanse the blood and liver.

The cilantro contains an abundance of antioxidants and relieves bloating, urinary tract infections and indigestion.

The apple cider vinegar has many health benefits. I wrote about the anti-aging benefits of apple cider vinegar in a post a few days ago. It is rich in enzymes, a natural germ fighter, improves digestion, helps reduce cholestrol, expels toxins and normalizes weight. Externally, it promotes a youthful body, maintains healthy skin and slows aging.

The onions in the guacamole recipe can help to lower high blood pressure, remove heavy metals from the bloodstream and help to fight many forms of cancer.

Here’s my favourite guacamole recipe for you to try.
