Health Food Of The Week | Avocado

Avocados feature as BMA’s health food of the week. Despite people confusing their high level of fats as a negative, it comes in the form of oleic acid, a monounsaturated ‘good’ fat that reduces levels of bad cholesterol in your blood and lowers your risk of stroke and heart disease.

Avocados are an excellent source of potassium (containing more per weight than bananas). In addition, avocados are rich in Vitamin K, Vitamin B9, Vitamin B6, Vitamin B5 Vitamin C, and Vitamin E. The tasty fruit can also aid in weight loss and maintaining a healthy BMI, due to all of these benefits and their high levels of fibre.
