Avocado Juice for Your Health

In Indonesia, we have this delicious drink (juice) made of avocado and added with chocolate. It’s usually served fresh and cold, which is perfect for the tropical weather in Indonesia. Not only tasty and delicious, avocado actually also gives us some health benefits in addition to its delicious taste.

For example, avocado contains high level of vitamins from A, B5, B6, C and K between 10-20% each in every 100 grams of the fruit. And like olive oil, it also contains monounsaturated fatty acid that tends to be very healthy (a major component in olive oil).

The myth that I heard said that avocado actually contains a lot of fats and increases your cholesterol, which are totally false. According to the research, avocado actually helps to reduce cholesterol level and it contains high fiber level. Every a hundred grams of avocado contains almost 30% of our fiber daily needs.

Additionally, avocado also helps to provide us great amount of antioxidants for both beauty and health necessities. Even better, this fruit can also protect our health by preventing cardiovascular diseases and cancers.

Avocado may also help us to reduce body weight in a healthy way as whenever we eat avocado, we may not feel hungry for the next few hours, meaning that we can avoid to eat more than we should (based on my personal experience).

As I said earlier, in Indonesia, avocado is often served as a tasty juice added with chocolate. However, this is the yummy Indonesian tradition in preparing avocado as surely, it’s also great to be eaten as normal fruit or even as a salad ingredient.

    1. In this case I agree with you for the chocolate part. And of course it’s better to eat that as salad or fruit.

      In Indonesia, we usually have it as both juice and fruit with (like u said) teaspoons of sugar πŸ˜€

      I personally eat it with teaspoons of brown sugar or corn sugar as fruit πŸ˜€

      Thanks for commenting πŸ™‚

    1. Hello :-),

      Thank you for answering my question. I was wondering if you could help me or point me in the right direction. I’m interested in purchasing Temulawak and some of the other herbs used in Jamu.
      Do you know of anyone who sell these herbs in bulk and who could also ship them to the United States?

      Thank you.

    1. Hello,

      Thank you for getting back to me. Not for resale, but I would need to purchase these items in bulk because of the size of my family.

      We have 11 children and we don’t believe in taking medicine. My parents and my wife’s parents live with us, so big family. I would assume because of the size of my family it might be best to purchase from someone who sells these items for resale. This would be a less expensive route to take I think.

      Thank you.

  1. Hello,

    Yes U r right, better to believe in natural cure instead of medicines. But which state are you living in? Because we have Indonesian Trade Promotion Centre (ITPC) offices in US that operate under Ministry of Trade.

    If I know which state you are in, I can inform to ITPC in Milan if they have any suggestion for you.

    1. Hello,

      We live in Portland, Oregon. The three main herbs I am interested in are Temulawak, Sambiloto and Mahkota Dewa. My wife says she remembers her grandmother giving them to her and she was never sick.

      Also, my brother lives in Washington state, so if it’s easier I can also receive shipments in Vancouver, Washington.

      Thank you for your time and your help.

      1. Hello,

        How are you? We just wanted to first off say thank you. With your help I was able to purchase all of the herbs I needed for my family. With the information you provided, everything worked out perfectly.

        I could really use your help again if you have the time and if you’re able. There’s a company in Indonesia that sells products that I would like to purchase for my family.

        I would like to know if I could purchase their products and if they are able and willing to ship to the United States.

        Company Name : Aljannah Global Marketing ( AJGM)
        Website : ajglobal2u.com
        Telephone : +62 778 8073 118

        Can you help us again please? No one at their Indonesia office spoke English. That is the problem I’m having.

        Thank you again.

    Temulawak, mahkota dewa e sambiloto. They are the best. I also often bring mahkota dewa and sambiloto when I return back to Indonesia. Then there is as well turmeric that is as healthy as the others.
