Researchers say that an avocado a day can help in keeping metabolic syndrome far far away.

Apart from taking care of metabolic syndrome, the fruit and its parts may help to cure other conditions as well.

Metabolic syndrome is a clustering of risk factors of high blood sugar, cholesterol, blood pressure and body mass index that may lead to Type-2 diabetes and cardiovascular disease.

According to studies reported in the literature, avocados have the most beneficial effects on lipid profiles, with changes to LDL-cholesterol, HDL-cholesterol, triglycerides, total cholesterol and phospholipids.

The peel, seed, flesh and leaves of avocados have differing effects on components of metabolic syndrome."Avocado is a well-known source of carotenoids, minerals, phenolics, vitamins, and fatty acids," wrote the authors of the Phytotherapy Research review.

"The lipid- lowering, antihypertensive, antidiabetic, anti-obesity, antithrombotic, antiatherosclerotic, and cardioprotective effects of avocado have been demonstrated in several studies," they explained.
