Did you know that an avocado is a fruit? Well, it is. Avocados are a very popular fruit widely available all over the world.
Avocados are not only popular but are also a highly nutritious fruit. Avocados are rich in Vitamins K, C, and B6, along with minerals like potassium, copper and folic acid. Avocados are a good source of dietary fibre too. It is almost surprising how it tastes so creamy and fabulous. Vegan, vegetarian, and raw food enthusiasts use avocados in pies, smoothies, soups, desserts, or anything that you may want a creamy texture with.
It is the perfect fruit for those who want to lower their cholesterol levels or want to just keep it under control. Oleic acid, which is a monounsaturated fat, is perfect for fighting cholesterol. The fruit is high in potassium, which helps to protect from circulatory problems like heart disease, stroke, and high blood pressure. A diet rich in avocado is thus recommended for those with heart and cholesterol problems.
It would not be wrong to say that avocado is a super fruit and a great addition to anyone’s daily diet.
