6 Avocado Benefits in Arthritis

1. Reduces Inflammation

Inflammation can be caused by an overload on the joint or autoimmune disorder. These promote articular joint damage.

Avocados are high in anti-inflammatory mono-unsaturated fats which primarily suppress pro-inflammatory cytokines.

These are cytokine proteins that trigger inflammation.

The presence of vitamin E also gives avocado its anti-inflammatory properties.

2. Avocado Soybean Unsaponifiables

Some people use ASU( Avocado soy unsaponifiables ) which are known to boost collagen production in the joints.

Collagen is an important component in cartilage that contributes to its health.

Studies have also shown that ASU’s inhibit genes expression of molecules known to trigger inflammation.

3. Antioxidant Properties

Arthritis has been linked with oxidative stress which is increased production of free radicals and reduced antioxidant defense system.

Arthritis leads to the reduction of certain antioxidants which include vitamin C, catalase, GPx, and Glutathione.

Avocado is packed with all these antioxidants which help fight oxidative stress.

4. Micronutrients

Avocados contain vitamins and minerals including Vitamins E and C, Selenium, and Zinc.

Vitamin E, C, and selenium reduce the oxidative stress of enzymes by reducing the accumulation of free radicals and reducing lipid peroxidation.

Zinc has the ability to strengthen the Immune system whereas else selenium acts as a co-factor to the antioxidant enzyme, SOD.

5. Metabolic Health

Arthritis patients are mostly at a high risk of metabolic syndromes.

People are considered to have metabolic syndromes when they have the following complications:

  • Obesity
  • High serum triglyceride levels
  • Low levels of HDL(good cholesterol)
  • Diabetes
  • High blood pressure

High levels of triglycerides and low levels of good cholesterol increase the risk of high blood pressure which is due to the narrowing of the lumen of the arteries.

This narrowing is due to the deposition of cholesterol, triglycerides, and WBC’s on the walls of the arteries.

Obese people are likely to suffer from arthritis due to the intense stress to the joints of the knee.

Avocados have monounsaturated fats which reduce the risk of high blood pressure by reducing the amount of bad cholesterol from the arteries.

Avocados contain antioxidant vitamins E and C which help prevent oxidation of LDL(bad cholesterol).

Avocados are also good for reducing weight thus helping people with arthritis.

6. Joint Health

Avocados improve joint health by reducing stiffness, inflammation and enhancing cartilage repair.
