How good are Avocados for you?

Rich in antioxidants, avocados contain lutein and zeaxanthin, two carotenoid eye nutrients concentrated in the dark green flesh close to the peel. Hence, while taking out all the creamy flesh, make sure to scrape closer to the peels too. We do not want to waste any good nutrients.

Eating carotenoid-rich foods with avocados can boost the absorption of phytonutrients in other vegetables because carotenoids are fat-soluble. For example, adding avocado to a cup of salsa triples absorption of the red pigment lycopene compared with eating the tomatoes in the salsa without a source of fat (such as avocados, nuts, or seeds) at the same meal.

Avocado-eaters also experience elevated levels of vitamin K, another fat-soluble vitamin that is contained in avocados themselves.

Rich in antioxidants, avocados contain lutein and zeaxanthin, two carotenoid eye nutrients concentrated in the dark green flesh close to the peel. Because carotenoids, such as the beta-carotene in sweet potatoes, are fat-soluble, eating carotenoid-rich foods with avocados can boost the absorption of phytonutrients in other vegetables. For example, adding avocado to a cup of salsa triples absorption of the red pigment lycopene compared with eating the tomatoes in the salsa without a source of fat (such as avocados, nuts, or seeds) at the same meal.
