Avocados are one of natures most nutrient dense foods and pack a major health punch.
1) Alkalize the Body
Being a nutrient dense food, avocados are extremely high in potassium and magnesium, two very alkalizing minerals that promote healthy blood cells and immunity within the body leading leading to more energy and better detoxification.
2) Antioxidant Powerhouse
Containing key antioxidants such as alpha-carotene, beta-carotene, lutein, selenium and more, avocados work as a superfood promoting health to all the major organs of your body.
3) Overall Health
Being a superfood, avocados have serious anti-inflammatory, heart health, cardiovascular health, anti-cancer, and blood sugar benefits that help combat disease and promote healthy cells within the body.
“…But Avocados are high in fat!”
There is no need to worry about the fat that comes from avocados. These are heart healthy, cholesterol cleansing fats that work with your body, not against it like man made packaged and fried foods.
