The ‘Fatty Fruit’ Secret to Top-Notch Gut Health
As we age, we all know how important it is to take care of every part of your body.
You watch what you eat and drink to keep your heart healthy… you get plenty of exercise to keep those joints pain-free… and maybe you even drink plenty of coffee to keep your brain sharp.
But are you taking steps to keep your GUT healthy?
While sometimes overlooked, a healthy gut contributes to a strong immune system, strong heart and brain health, improved mood, healthy sleep, and helps prevent some cancers and autoimmune diseases.
But if you find yourself neglecting that important gut health, there’s good news.
There’s a ‘fatty fruit’ – typically shunned by the mainstream – that just may be the secret to top-notch gut health!
I’m talking about AVOCADOS!
That’s right… the delicious, healthy-fat-rich plant that your mainstream doc has told you to avoid can contribute to a strong gut as part of your daily diet.
In fact, researchers from the University of Illinois say adding avocado to just one meal a day can improve the diversity of microbes in the gut and the healthy substances they create.
The researchers found that people who ate avocado every day as part of a meal had a greater abundance of gut microbes that break down fiber and produce metabolites – compounds that support gut health.
During the three-month study, the research team examined a group of adults that were considered obese or overweight. Half the group was given an avocado at one meal… the other half was not.

This Food Could Be Growing Deadly Tumors
This Food Could Be Growing Deadly Tumors
Are we literally FEEDING cancer cells by putting this one food on our dinner plates?
This is important. THIS one food could be growing cancer cells.
And here’s where it gets interesting… as soon as we STOP eating it, the opposite happens: cancer cells STARVE to death — and die out by the thousands.
Skeptical? See the evidence here.
It turns out that the avocado group consumed slightly more calories… BUT more fat left their body through their stool.
In other words, avocados were reducing the amount of bile acids found in the gut. The less bile acids, the healthier the gut!
Avocados are packed with soluble fiber and monounsaturated fat… both of which are good for your gut.
So how do I like to get my daily intake of avocados?
My go-to is a simple piece of avocado toast.
I simply toast some heart-healthy whole grain bread, and instead of spreading with butter… I spread it with avocado.
Top it with your favorite salsa (or even a poached egg), and you have yourself a delicious, high-fiber breakfast!
Just remember, while avocados are packed with nutrients, they are also calorie-dense. So just be sure to stick to ONE avocado per day (just like the study).
