We love avocados at Mocu health because they are tasty and provide tremendous health value. They are packed with fiber, antioxidants, anti-inflammatory oleic acid and heart-healthy minerals like potassium; even more potassium than a banana actually. Some primary health benefits include:
- Improves heart health
- Reduces bad cholesterol
- Reduces inflammation
- Prevents arthritis and reduces pain
- Protects the eyes
- Prevents and fights cancer
- Promotes skin health
- Aids weight loss
