What makes an avocado healthy?
Avocado is packed full of nutrients from vitamin C and K to folate and potassium. There are also about 15g of healthy fats in a 100g serving of avocado and these have been shown to reduce cholesterol levels. There are antioxidant carotenoids and a host of other nutrients such as vitamin E and oleic acid, all of which are great for the skin’s tone, thickness and general appearance.
