1. Avocados Lower Inflammation

The first reason you need to start eating more avocado: they prevent extreme inflammatory responses. Adding avocados to your diet keeps inflammation in check, even when you eat them with something like red meat—a well-known inflammation spiking food.

Research published in the academic journal Food & Function demonstrates that eating a plain hamburger results in as much as a 70% rise in IL6—a cytokine that promotes an inflammatory response[1].

Adding an avocado to the same burger can reduce inflammation significantly. The study determined that IL6 levels when eating a burger with avocado were reduced by 40%. As a result, there was a 30% decrease in food-based inflammation just by adding avocado.
