Things to concern when eating avocado

Tasty and nutritious, that’s what we often mention when talking about avocado. However, it doesn’t mean we can eat this fruit uncontrolledly.

There is a lot to say about the health benefits of avocado. They are excellent source of healthy saturated fat, as well as Omega-3 fatty acids. In the elderly, this fruit also increases the level of lutein in the brain and eye, which significantly improves cognitive function, according to a study in the journal Nutrients. A study by researchers at Tufts University also finds that for adults aged 50 and older, eating fresh avocados increases the amount of lutein in the eye each day and improves their ability to work.

However, these great news don’t mean avocado is totally safe and we can enjoy this fruit as much as possible. Here are a few things you should remember before eating avocado daily:
