Where avocados grow, hunger and malnutrition have no friends—Mayan saying.

1. Protects your eyes

Avocado provides lutein, which protects you against age-related eye degeneration.

2. Healthy heart

Avocado has olecic acid, which is a great cardiovascular booster. Avos also have vitamin B6 and folic acid, which control homocysteine levels that increase the risk of a heart attack.

3. Aids digestion

Avocado contains more natural fiber than any other fruit. Which means they help to regulate blood sugar and digestion.

4. Antioxidant rich

Contains the antioxidant glutathione, which helps your immune system.

5. Potassium rich

Avocado contains 35 percent more potassium than a banana.
