Acts as a digestive enzyme

Avocado has a rich fat content that makes it easier to absorb fat soluble vitamins such as vitamins A, K, D and E, which means adding this creamy fruit to any vegetable-dense meal ensures you are getting these vitamins. Without fat in your diet, the body would not be able to absorb the fat soluble vitamins in that meal.

Eases arthritic symptoms

Avocados contain carotenoids, antioxidants, phytosterols, omega-3 fatty acids and polyhydroxolated fatty alcohols, which make the fruit an anti inflammatory agent.

Reduces risk of certain cancers

Avocados possess a mix of antioxidant and inflammatory characteristics, which makes it able to combat certain cancers, including mouth, skin and prostate cancers. Some researches have found that the phytochemicals in avocados can selectively induce cell cycle arrest, inhibit growth and induce apoptosis in precancerous and cancer cell lines.

Healthy skin

The monounsaturated fats in avocados are also beneficial for improving your skin tone and appearance. They are vital for maintaining good moisture levels in the epidermal layer of your skin that make it look and feel soft and healthy.

An ounce of avocado contains 81 microgram of lutein, along with zeaxanthin. these phytonutrients are essential to eye health as they are carotenoids that acts as antioxidants in the eye, helping to lower the risk of developing age-related eye conditions. Adding avocados to your daily diet can protect the tissues of the eye from sun damage and the formation of cataracts and macular degeneration.
