Looking into 10 avocado studies with over 200 participants the research found that daily avocado consumption can significantly reduce total cholesterol, “bad” cholesterol, and triglycerides (type of fat floating in blood).
Eating one, one and a half avocados a day can lower bad cholesterol even in healthy folk with normal levels of the stuff.
