An avocado is nutrient dense and provides almost 20 essential nutrients, including potassium, folate, pantothenic acid, potassium, niacin, riboflavin, phosphorus, magnesium, copper, manganese, iron, thiamin and vitamins B6, C, E and K.
Avocados contain healthy fats, including omega-3 fatty acids that are so important to heart and brain health and are thought to play a role in weight loss, including belly fat.
Avocados contain the 18 amino acids that are in "complete protein", making them an excellent source of an easily digestible form of protein that is used more efficiently than protein found in meat.
Avocados are high in natural dietary fiber which aids in digestion, absorption of nutrients and elimination and is thought to promote a healthy weight as well as weight loss.
Avocados taste great and are easy and quick to eat (no preparation required!). They also work really well in many recipes. For more information on the health benefits of avocados and to sign up for a recipe newsletter, visit the California Avocado Commission website.
