9 – Avocados and liver health
Research has revealed that avocados contain potent chemicals which could reduce liver damage.
Avocados are rich in the antioxidant glutathione, which the liver needs for the filtering out of harmful substances and protecting cells of the liver from damage. Individuals with chronic liver disease usually have low levels of glutathione.
Avocados are also rich in vitamin E and vitamin C, two antioxidants helpful in neutralizing free radicals which can contribute to liver cell damage.
