Few foods that taste as rich and delicious are also as good for your health!

You can enjoy avocados guilt-free because they are cholesterol-free, sodium-free, high in fiber, low in saturated fat, and rich in vitamins, minerals and antioxidants.

Recent research has shown that the nutrients and phytochemicals in avocados actually work together to promote health and fight disease.

Heart-Healthy Cholesterol Fighter

Avocados are naturally cholesterol free and contain heart-healthy monounsaturated fats. Studies have shown that eating foods high in monounsaturated fat can benefit people with chronic conditions such as high cholesterol, heart disease, diabetes and high blood pressure.

Avocados are the richest fruit source of dietary fiber and beta-sitosterol. Both inhibit cholesterol absorption and lower serum cholesterol levels.

Eating avocados can also improve the ratio of good HDL cholesterol to bad LDL cholesterol. It's a simple, delicious way to cut your risk of heart disease!





Antioxidants = Anti-Cancer

Free radicals are harmful chemicals in the body that can damage cells, promote aging and may cause cancer and heart disease. Avocados are rich in antioxidants that combat free radicals in the blood stream.

Recent research ranks avocados highest among fruits in the antioxidants lutein, glutathione and vitamin E.

Lutein protects against macular degeneration and cataracts and has been shown to prevent prostate cancer.

Glutathione protects cell DNA from free radicals and may help reduce the risk of cancer of the mouth and larynx.

Vitamin E is a powerful antioxidant that protects body tissue from the damages of oxidation. Avocados have more vitamin E than any other fruit.

High in Vitamins and Minerals
Avocados are the highest fruit source of vitamin E and contain more vitamin K, thiamin, riboflavin, niacin, biotin, folic acid, pantothenic acid, potassium and magnesium than any other commonly eaten fruit. And, avocados are much more delicious and satisfying than a pill!
