5 BENEFITS OF AVOCADO FOR HEALTH AND IMMUNITY
Avocados are everyone’s best friend. Not only because they taste great on toast, but because they’re also packed with all the good stuff to keep our bodies thriving. You probably don’t need another reason to love them, but just in case you do, here are some of the amazing health and immunity benefits nature’s butter has to offer.
1. What rhymes with delicious?
Nutritious – correct! You might have heard avocados referred to as a ‘superfood’ because of all the healthy stuff they have inside them. With 19 vitamins and nutrients, including vitamins C, E, K and B-6, there isn’t a tastier way to get your daily dose of goodness.
2. Good for your ticker.
We heart avos, and avos heart us too. Low in saturated fats and high in heart-healthy ‘good’ fats (monounsaturated and polyunsaturated), avocados are a fantastic way to help keep your cholesterol and blood sugar levels in check and under control, lowering the risk of heart disease and diabetes.
3. Packed with fibre.
Ever get an uncontrollable snack craving? Well you might want to add some fibre to your diet. Avocados are high in fibre, which will help you feel full faster. This is great for weight management, metabolism and can help lower major risk factors of many diseases.
4. Full of antioxidants.
Antioxidants work wonders by protecting our bodies against harmful molecules. With plenty of natural antioxidants (from vitamin C and E), avos are a fantastic way to strengthen your immune system and keep everything from your brain to your body in tip top condition.
5. Fatigue fighter.
Forget the coffee jitters and make your next pick-me-up an avocado instead. Loaded with folate from B vitamins, avocados can help you beat off tiredness by charging your engine with the energy to last the whole day.
We’re a bit biased, but we’d be lying if we didn’t say that adding a bit of avocado to your diet is the tastiest way to keep your body working the way it should.
