Why avocados are one of the healthiest fruits on the planet

Leave a comment

Avocados…

1) contain oleic acid, a monounsaturated fat that helps lower ‘bad’ cholesterol and raise ‘good’ cholesterol.

2) are a good source of potassium, an important mineral that helps protect against high blood pressure, heart disease and stroke.

3) help increase the body’s absorption of carotenoids, which are  powerful antioxidants that help protect cells from free radical activity and strengthen the body’s immune system.

4) are an excellent source of iron and copper (which build red blood cells)

5) contain vitamins A, B1, B2, B3, C, K and they’re high in vitamin E (which slows aging).

6) are low in sugar, starch-free and are a good source of dietary fiber, perfect for slow burning energy without a sugar crash.

7) are a good food choice for diabetics or those with other sugar-sensitive conditions.

8)  improve your complexion because they are full of Vitamin E, which provides moisturizing assets through both consumption and topical use.
