Avocados are popular for good reason. Not only are they delicious, they're packed with vitamins, minerals, and other nutrients that can help keep you healthy.
Avocados have more potassium than bananas, are loaded with heart-healthy monounsaturated fatty acids, and are full of fiber. They can help lower cholesterol and triglyceride levels, help you absorb nutrients from plant foods, and improve digestion. They may also prevent cancer, relieve symptoms of arthritis, and help decrease the risk of depression.
So, enjoy this little green treasure on National Avocado Day, July 31st, and all year long.
