Superfood: Avocado

 Sure, avocados can be seen gracing the packaging of moisturizers and shampoos. But while those mushy green facials are awfully tempting, this tasty little fruit goes more than skin deep. Butguacamole is just the beginning…

Bravo to the Avocado — Why It’s Super

 The avocado has many nutritional benefits, ranging from cholesterol management and high fiber content to alleviating arthritis and potentially lessening the side effects of chemotherapyTrusted SourceTrusted Source. Here are a few key reasons avocado is the way to go:

・Monounsaturated fat: Yup, that’s the “good” fat. Monounsaturated fats can improve cholesterol levels, decrease the risk of heart disease, and can benefit brain activity and locomotionTrusted SourceTrusted SourceTrusted Source.

・Vitamin E: Vitamin E packs an antioxidant punch, protecting body tissue from damage by disabling free radicals (groups of unpaired atoms in the body that can lead to cancer or heart disease)Trusted Source. It’s also vital to red blood cell formation — another plus, since these cells are responsible for circulating oxygen and getting rid of waste.

・Vitamin B6: Among other awesome functions, Vitamin B6 (also known as pyridoxine) assists with the body’s formation of glycogen (back-up fuel that’s storedin the liver and muscles) and promotes skin health (suddenly those moisturizers make more sense…)Trusted SourceTrusted Source.

・Carotenoids: When eaten together, avocados may increase the body’s absorption of carotenoids from other healthy foods like fruits and vegetablesTrusted Source. Carotenoids are high in Vitamin A and have been linked to a reduced risk of cancer, heart disease, and eye degenerationTrusted Source.
