Benefits of eating AvocadosAvocado

There are many benefits to eating avocados. They are a healthy source of fat (monounsaturated fat). Remember fat is good for the body. Avocados also support your body in many other positive ways.

Here’s 5 reasons why you should include avocados in your diet.

1: High in fibre, especially insoluble fibre which is great at cleaning out your bowl.

2: High in vitamins which play many roles  within your body including to support your body’s metabolism and promote healthy skin.

3: Rich in potassium. This helps to maintain fluid and electrolyte balance in the body. A deficiency in potassium can cause hypertension (high blood pressure) and also fatigue.

4: Can help lower cholesterol levels and reduce the risk of diabetes.

5: Improve eye health. Avocados carry the antioxidant carotenoid leutein that specialises in protecting the eyes from stress damage leading to poor vision.
