Eating Avocado Pulp Cardiovascular Recovery Exercise Health Benefits

Avocado Pulp May Help Cardiovascular Recovery Following Exercise

Avocados contain approximately 20 vitamins and minerals. They are also low in sugar and contain fiber and monosaturated fats. A new study has found that supplementation with avocado pulp may help improve cardiovascular recovery after exercise.

Sixteen healthy, physically active women of college age participated in the study. They were given a supplement containing 600 mg of avocado pulp or a placebo one hour before running on a treadmill for an hour. Three days later they switched interventions. The researchers evaluated heart rate, heart rate variability, and skin conductance before exercise, during exercise, and during recovery from exercise.

The researchers found that participants’ systolic blood pressure and heart rate returned to baseline more quickly following consumption of the avocado pulp. Skin conductance, which is a measure of autonomic nervous system arousal, also recovered faster following avocado pulp consumption.

The study was conducted by researchers from Sao Paulo State University. It was published on July 1, 2020 in the journal Scientific Reports.
