Health Benefits of Avocado

Avocados are packed with essential nutrients and healthy fats. Specifically, they are a great source of vitamin K, C, E folate, and potassium. In addition, they are loaded with healthy monounsaturated fatty acids like oleic acid which has been associated with reduced inflammation and has positive effects on genes linked to cancer. Also, eating avocados can even help to lower your cholesterol.
