Health benefits of Avocado.

a) Helps maintain good eyesight
If you want to maintain good eyesight, eat avocados! Thanks to a carotenoid called lutein, avocado absorbs ultraviolet rays from the sun, preventing these from damaging the retina. The acids on the pulp also protect the eyes from degeneration and cataracts.

b) The avocado fruit contains the benefits of Vitamin E
Avocados are a great source of vitamin E. When you consume this vitamin regularly, the body is fully equipped to fight disease. In addition, Vitamin E also revitalizes the skin making it soft and supple thanks to its antioxidant properties.

c) Avocados contribute to good heart health
A portion of this delicious fruit contains a high percentage of folic acid (23%). Folic acid is a vitamin found in green leafy vegetables and its role is to restore overall health.

d) Helps lower cholesterol
Avocados are high in beta-sitosterol, a compound that has been shown to keep cholesterol levels low. Avocados contain monounsaturated fat (healthy fat), which reduces LDL cholesterol which is harmful to the body.

e) Enhances absorption of nutrients
Eating avocados ensures that your body is absorbing certain nutrients. Carotenoids in other fruits and vegetables are absorbed more efficiently when you eat avocados. In some studies, researchers found that a person that consumes avocados, the absorption of carotenoids is 5 times more effective than someone that does not eat avocados.

It adds a unique and special flavor to your salads
Some people may not like this fruit, but those that do will know that avocados give salads and other dishes – and even some green drinks – a special flavor.

g) Repairs damaged hair
This is perhaps one of the most popular benefits of the avocado. It repairs dull, dry hair, due to the large number of vitamins and fat you consume from eating it.
