Benefits of avocados

The avocado is a rather unique type of fruit.

Most fruit consists primarily of carbohydrate, while avocado is high in healthy fats.

These are the health benefits:
  • The main ingredient in avocado is guacamole.
  • Avocado is loaded with monounsaturated fatty acids, majority of the fat is oleic acid. This is the same fat that is found in olive oil.
  • Full of fibre.  One fruit may supply about 13g of fibre or 50% of the recommended amount.
  • Eating Avocados can lower cholesterol and triglyceride levels
  • The fat in avocado can help you to absorb nutrients from plant food
  • Avocados are loaded with powerful antioxidants that can protect the eyes
  • Avocado extract may help relieve symptoms of arthritis
  • Eating avocado may help you lose weight
  • Avocados contain loads of vitamins A, C, E and K
  • Another thing that makes avocado a superfood is the fact that it does not contain any cholesterol or sodium and is low in saturated fat
  • Beneficial for pregnant women as it contains a great amount of folic acid which is important for preventing birth defects
  • Helps to protect your liver
