This recipe is all of that—except decadent.
There’s nothing in it that’s bad for you; au contraire—it will actually nourish your body while it bathes your mouth and satisfies your sweet tooth.
With its creamy texture and mild flavor, avocado is a very versatile fruit. It also provides us with many beneficial qualities.
Avocado contains plant sterols, chemicals that are like human hormones. One of these is beta-sitosterol, which is anti-estrogenic, decreasing the sensitivity of our estrogen receptors and increasing testosterone levels in men and progesterone levels in women.
Why avocado anti-estrogens are a good thing
Chemicals in our environment and personal care products leach into our air and food, wreaking havoc with our endocrine systems.
We are inundated with synthetic estrogens and daily stresses that cause an increase in estrogen production.
In men, too much estrogen can suppress testosterone, making matters worse.
We all have some estrogen and testosterone—the key is balance: women naturally have more estrogen and less testosterone than men and men have more testosterone and less estrogen than women.
When hormone levels get out of whack, unpleasant things can happen. (1)
