Benefits of the Avocado


Keep you healthy - they're packed with vitamins, minerals, and other nutrients that can help keep you healthy.

Better than a banana - ounce for ounce, avocados have more potassium than bananas.

Protect your eyesight - Avocados have lutein and zeaxanthin, which help to reduce the likelihood of age-related macular degeneration, the leading cause of blindness in older adults.

Help You Lose Weight - A half-cup of guacamole has about 6 grams, almost 1/4, of your daily fiber needs.

Boost Your Mood - In a cup of avocado slices, you'll get about 118 micrograms of folate, which is almost a third of what most adults need daily.

Power You Up – Avocados are packed with a variety of other B vitamins, too, including thiamine (B1), riboflavin (B2), and niacin (B3). These help your body convert the food you eat into energy.

Good for Your Heart - Early research now shows that avocados in particular can also help lower "bad" cholesterol, triglycerides, and blood pressure.

Save Your Brain - Avocados give you a good dose of vitamin E, which may help protect against Alzheimer's disease and slow decline in your memory and thinking skills.

Strengthen Bones – A half an avocado gives an adult 15% of their daily vitamin K needs. This nutrient may help improve bone density and prevent fractures.

Healthy Blood Sugar - Eating a plant-based diet (that includes avocados) could drop your chance of developing type 2 diabetes by about 20%, according to a Harvard study

Skin Care - Avocados antioxidants, like vitamin C, can help keep your skin looking youthful by smoothing out wrinkles and also protect your skin from UV damage.

Fight Cancer - Avocados have oleic acid that can slash the odds of breast cancer, according to a study of more than 4,000 women. And a compound in avocados called avocatin B can kill leukemia cells, according to a lab study.

Improves Prostrate - Beta-sitosterol, a kind of plant sterol, may help relieve symptoms of an enlarged prostate.

Team Player - Certain nutrients -- like vitamins A, D, E, and K, and the antioxidant lycopene -- are fat-soluble, which means your body will absorb more of them when you eat them along with some fat.
