Aches and Pains.
That’s a couple more notorious than Bonnie and Clyde.
Not only to older folk, but younger generations as well.
When you start progressing into your twenties your body will naturally develop them unless you taken exceptional care of it.
Even those who live an absolutely sedentary lifestyle experience them.
Your body is not used to exerting itself so it grows weaker, your muscles atrophy and it’s much easier for these pains to develop.
The good news is, there are quite a few ways to prevent aches and pains.
Although the most notable is physical activity, many foods can prevent them as well.
If you’re already living an active and healthy lifestyle there is one “food” that may be better than all others at reducing these symptoms.
One that is quite counter intuitive.
A food you’ve likely been throwing straight into the trash.
What is this food?
That’s right.. Avocado PITS. The seed. The middle part of the avocado.
Now, hang on for a second because I know what you must be thinking.
Are those things even edible?
The answer is yes, they are edible and are surprisingly good for you.
Avocados are loaded with polyphenols, catechins, and flavanols.
All things shown to decrease inflammation and increase your body’s ability to produce stem cells.
But, the avocado pit is absolutely LOADED with these nutrients.
It makes sense when you think about it.
The pit (or seed) is intended to carry on the specimens lineage so it needs all the power it can get to do that.
This also accounts for why the pit is so dense. It needs to be resilient to survive.
Multiple studies have shown that these nutrients, and in the proper doses not only reduce aches and pains, but can actually reverse them if included daily in your diet.
We’re not saying an avocado pit a day can cure you arthritis, but greatly ease the symptoms? Well, there’s a very good chance.
So, how do you consume the pit anyway?
I’m going to give you the two absolutely easiest ways to eat the pit of an avocado.
1: Blend it into your smoothie.
An avocado pit is surprisingly easy to break up in a blender so long as you have a halfway decent one.
Adding it into a smoothie in the morning makes it even easier to eat as you won’t even notice it.
2: Blend the pit separately and sprinkle it over other foods.
If you blend the pit into a fine powder you’ll be able to sprinkle it over a salad, your oatmeal, even a juicy steak.
Again, the flavors of the actual food will mask the powdery flavor of the pit so no need to worry.
We all knew that avocados alone were amazing for your health, but who knew the pit could be?
So do yourself a favor, have a little experiment.
Be your own “lab rat” and throw a few of these in your diet each week, for a month.
Track how you feel daily.
How was your sleep?
Most importantly, how were those aches and pains?
Were confident they’ll be diminished or even completely gone.
