Include some avocado in your daily diet
Eating avocado as part of your daily diet can help improve gut health by increasing relative abundances of bacteria capable of important fibre fermentation in the gut.
Avocados are a healthy food that are high not only in dietary fibre but monounsaturated fat which is also found in nuts & olive oil.
These fats and foods are all part of the Mediterranean diet and studies have reported may help boost brain, heart and now gut health.
Consuming healthy monounsaturated fat can also help you eat less and combined with the fibre in avocado's this study provides evidence that eating avocado's also improve digestive function.
