Bananas have several health benefits while avocado is a wise choice for people on a diet. According to a recent research, eating a banana and an avocado per day can prevent hardening of arteries that can lead to heart disease and death.
Research suggests that foods rich in potassium reduce vascular calcification, which is a condition common in both heart and kidney disease. Calcification causes calcium to accumulate in body tissue, blood vessels or organs, which can harden and interfere with the body’s normal processes. Diet rich in potassium also eases aortic stiffness, which is a typical cardiovascular risk factor.
