Image via WikipediaAvocados are one of the most nutritious foods available. They are mostly rich in fat, but the good fat, the same kind of fat that is present in olive oil. I have actually lost weight eating a diet rich in avocados. They are good for the heart and the arteries. Although some may dispute that. Avocados are rich in a number of vitamins, that being biotin, thiamine, niacin, vitamins A, B6 & E and folic acid. The are also rich in minerals too, such as phosphorus, magnesium and potassium. Avocados are also the only plant source containing carnitine. "Carnitine is a nutrient vital for fat metabolism" (1)
I could literally eat an avocado right out the skin. I have been giving them to my kids since they were infants. They are one of my favorite foods, it is just a plus that they are so good for you too.
Avocados can help with malnourishment, complexion problems, hair loss and a number of other aliments. The are also a very alkaline food, which can help obtain a healthy pH of your body (I will write about body pH in another post, soon).
It may very well be that an avocado a day, may just keep the doctor away.
