      Go avocado for health and beauty!

      The avocado is a highly nutritious fruit that provides many health benefits. Unlike most fruits that are merely high in carbohydrates, this is packed with healthy fats. It has a creamy, rich, fatty texture which makes it versatile enough to make a wide range of dishes since it blends with other ingredients.

      Avocados have more potassium that bananas! A high potassium intake will help to reduce blood pressure, a condition that ups the risk for heart attacks, strokes and kidney failure. Avocados contain about 7% fiber by weight which promotes healthy metabolism and weight loss. Avocados and avocado oil are rich in monounsaturated oleic acid. This is a heart-healthy fatty acid. They also have the highest protein content found in any fruit.

      Prevents cancer and protects eyes

      Avocado helps in treating and preventing cancer. Studies have shown that it can prevent the growth of prostate cancer cells and also bring down the side effects associated with chemotherapy.

      Fight inflammation

      Avocados are rich in phytosterols, plant hormones like campesterol, beta-sitosterol and stigmasterol, besides polyhydroxylated fatty acids (PFAs). All these are anti-inflammatory. They help relieve arthritis pain. They are also rich in omega-3 fatty acids that lubricate joints and alleviate joint pains.

      Merely half of an avocado provides up to 25% of the daily recommended intake of vitamin K1 which improves bone health by increasing calcium absorption and reducing urine calcium levels.

      Improves fertility

      This fruit not only boosts fertility but also improves chances of conception. This also helps in improving the success rates of IVF.

      Keep skin healthy

      Avocados can slow down the aging process as they boast the highest fat-soluble antioxidant content that you can find in any fruit or vegetable. Lutein and zeaxanthin which the human skin needs comes from avocado. These antioxidants help protect the skin from UV and radiation damage.
