They're SUPER good for you!

Avocados top the charts with their many health benefits, especially in the healthy fats department. They provide 5 grams of monounsaturated fats per serving and 1 gram of polyunsaturated fat.

 
 

Monounsaturated fatty acids help lower LDL cholesterol levels, reducing the risk of heart disease. Eating a diet full of processed foods and that’s high in saturated and trans fats increases your risk factors for diabetes and heart disease.

If you have high cholesterol or struggle with high blood pressure, adding avocado to your diet in place of saturated fat like butter might be a good idea.

 
 

Avocados are a good source of antioxidants like beta-carotene. Beta carotene, lutein, and zeaxanthin are examples of antioxidants that protect your cells from the effects of free radicals and can prevent the growth of cancer cells.

Avocados can act as a “nutrient booster” by helping increase the absorption of fat-soluble nutrients like vitamins A, D, K and E.

 
 

Avocados, when eaten with a diet rich in whole foods, fruits, and vegetables, can support a weight loss regimen and make eating well infinitely more delicious. When you eat healthy reduced risk foods like avocados, you’re definitely on the right track.
