Did you know?
The avocado is a fruit.
Avocados do not contain any cholesterol or sodium, and are low in saturated fat.
Avocados are loaded with fiber!
Avocado contains 36% of the daily requirement of vitamin K, 30% of the folate, and 20% each of the daily requirements of pantothenic acid (vitamin B5, needed to break down carbohydrates), vitamin B6, vitamin C, and potassium - more than twice the potassium of a banana.
They also contain vitamin E, niacin, and riboflavin as well
Eaten with other foods, your body is better able to absorb the nutrients, such as alpha- and beta-carotene and lutein.
Avocado provides you with "good" fats. That means it can help keep your cholesterol levels in the healthy range, and help lower your risk for heart disease.
