Nutrition in an Avocado: More Than Just Healthy Fats

Avocado is much more than a simple fruit. It is a source of essential nutrients that can enrich your diet and enhance your well-being. Rich in vitamins and minerals, avocado is known for its high content of monounsaturated fats (making it an ally for digestion and satiety), which are beneficial for heart health.

Promoting Cardiovascular Health

One of the most remarkable advantages of avocado is its ability to promote cardiovascular health. The monounsaturated fats in avocado help reduce LDL cholesterol levels (the "bad" cholesterol) in the body, thus reducing the risk of heart diseases while increasing the efficiency of your circulatory system.

"Assuming you eat them throughout the year, avocados are among the foods that favorably influence brain neurotransmitters that directly affect our mood and emotions." FONTANILLE, Bernard; GRÉZAUD, Marie-Laurence. These Foods That Make Us Happy. Michel Lafon, 2016.

Avocado and Radiant Skin

Avocado is not only a gem in the kitchen; it can also be an ally in your skincare routine. Its natural oils and antioxidants can help moisturize the skin, reduce inflammation, and combat signs of aging. Not to mention its healing properties in removing dead cells.
