The delicious large berry aka avocado is amazing in everything it contains and even in what it doesn’t. Avocados contain a lot of different nutrients, including 20 different vitamins and minerals and at the same time any cholesterol or sodium.
Avocado is high in healthy fats, but low in saturated ones. Knowing that some nutrients need to be combined with fat to be utilized, can be concluded that avocados are not only nutritious by themselves but also increase the nutrient value of other plant foods that you are eating.
