Avocado is fatty… but it’s also very healthy.
Avocados are comprised mostly of monounsaturated fats which are basically heart-healthy fats.
Monounsaturated fatty acids have been tied to a number of powerful health benefits including protection against metabolic syndrome and heart disease. It may also reduce inflammation and enhance insulin sensitivity which can improve the body’s ability to regulate blood sugar levels effectively, as well as even potentially lowering risks of depression.
Avocados are packed with nutrients associated with many other health benefits such as: healthy vision, combats cancer growth, boosts weight loss, improves blood sugar control and promotes digestive health.
