Why Eating Avocado Is Good For Our Health?

Eating avocados more often can have many health benefits, including a healthier heart, better skin, helping you lose weight and treating or avoiding serious health problems. But why avocado is so good for you? Here are some of the reasons.


Avocados serve up a variety of vitamins. It is the best fruit source of vitamin E, B, C and K. Vitamin E is essential as it protects the body against many diseases and helps maintains overall health. Vitamin B helps your body's metabolism and its maintenance of a healthy skin tone. Vitamin K plays a fundamental role in your body by making proteins for healthy bones and tissues, while vitamin C which is essential for maintaining your skin’s elasticity and firmness as it is involved in the creation of elastin and collagen.

Fiber Content

Fiber is another nutrient found in relatively large amounts in avocado. A medium avocado contains 11 grams of fiber, which is close to half of the daily recommended minimum intake.  It helps provide a feeling of fullness, speed up metabolism and is important in promoting healthy laxation.

Valuable Fat

Avocados are an excellent source of healthful fats. Monounsaturated fat, in the form of oleic acid, is considered to be a "good fat" which reduces levels of bad cholesterol in your blood and lowers your risk of stroke and heart disease. It is also beneficial for improving your skin tone. 

There are many more healthy nutrients in avocado and studies shows that avocado consumers were found to be much healthier than people who didn’t eat avocados. I do hope that the reasons above is more than enough reason to look more closely at one of nature’s healthiest foods and avoid the unhealthy ones the next time you’re out shopping.
