Study shows eating avocados improves concentration

A recent study has found that eating avocados improves concentration.

Avocados are high in lutein, which has proven to have positive effects on the brain.

Researches from the University of Illinois completed a 12-week randomised control trial.

They discovered that adults who are overweight or obese had an increase in cognitive benefits after consuming the fruit.

For the study, 80 adults were split into two groups and given the same meals. However, one set of participants included an avocado daily.

At the end of the study, those who had avocados had improved performances on a cognitive test which required them to focus on the task while being distracted.
