The avocado fruit is high in oleic acid, healthy fats, vitamins A and C, and fiber.
Avocados are one of the highest sources of fat soluble vitamin E around. One cup of average sized avocado provides 161% RDA for folate (Pro-Vitamin B9) and 57% RDA for Vitamin K1. High levels of these vitamins can help fight infection by stimulating white blood cells that protect us against illness (data). Avocados contain no saturated fat or cholesterol! They are an important source of carotenoids which act as potent antioxidants to protect cells from damage caused by free radicals (data).
