Avocado

If we were to make a list of the healthiest fruits of nature, avocado would surely be at the very top. Avocado is extremely rich in vitamins K, C, B5, B6, E, folate, potassium, magnesium, manganese, copper, iron, zinc, and slightly smaller amounts of vitamins A, B1, B2 and B3. A mere 100 grams of this fruit contains 15 grams of extremely healthy fats and has only 160 calories. Avocado has a low percentage of carbohydrates, it contains no cholesterol, sodium or saturated fats. That is why it is an ideal ingredient in various diets. Serious clinical studies have proven that avocado can significantly reduce the levels of total cholesterol, triglycerides in the blood and increase the level of good cholesterol. Its oleic acid reduces inflammations and growth of tumours and negative effects of chemotherapy. Avocado has been shown to prevent the growth of prostate cancer cells.
