Daily Consumption of Avocados can Protect Children from Health Problems
High levels of polyunsaturated fatty acids can help in lowering risk of developing asthma or hay fever in children of age 16 or below
Researchers from Karolinska Institutet in Solna, Sweden suggested that polyunsaturated fatty acids such as omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids are essential for growth and development of body. Although human body produces the fatty acids, they are in low concentration. They are sourced from foods such as nuts and certain vegetable oils. Long-chain omega-3 fatty acids are majorly found in fish. The results of the study showed that children with higher blood levels of long-chain omega-3 fatty acids at the age of eight were less likely to have develop asthma or rhinitis by the age of 16 years.
The research is published in the Journal of Allergy and Clinical Immunology on December, 2017. “Since allergies often debut during childhood it is of particular interest to study if children’s environment and lifestyle affect the development of these diseases,” said lead study author Anna Bergstrom. “These new results and those of a previous study we carried out support the current dietary guidelines to eat fish two to three times a week and to vary between oily and lean fish,” Dr Anna Bergstrom added.
Allergic diseases such as asthma and rhinitis are common in children. This study was conducted as part of the Swedish birth cohort BAMSE. Study aimed to investigate the link between levels of long-chain omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids in blood samples of 940 children and subsequent development of asthma and other allergic diseases. High levels of an omega-6 fatty acid called arachidonic acid were found to be associated with a low risk of asthma and rhinitis at age of 16.
According to Avocado Oil Market report published by Coherent Market Insights, avocado oil consists high concentration of potassium, vitamins such as A, D, and E, and monounsaturated fats. High blood levels of arachidonic acid were linked with a high probability of being healthy at age 16 years among children with asthma or rhinitis.
