Avocado is a delicious and nutritious fruit known as “alligator pear” because of its green color and pear shape. It is a low-carb fruit with good calories and a small amount of vitamin A, B2, and B3. It also contains many nutrition like carbohydrates, fiber, potassium, protein, healthy fats, vitamin E, B5, C, K, and B6. All of these things are essential for a healthy diet.
Today’s modern diet lacks the number of nutrients a healthy body needs, but avocado alone contains all the nutrients to stay fit and healthy. It is a delicious fruit that can be eaten independently with a spoon or with other fruits and vegetables as it has good fats present in it, which boosts up the energies of different fruits and vegetables.
Avocados play a beneficial role in many stages of life. Let’s take a look at the healthy benefits of avocados:
Avocado helps in your weight loss journey, as it contains enough calories to make your stomach full, refraining you from eating extra food. It enables you to hold on to a healthy balanced diet with a high amount of fiber and a low amount of carbs. It is also known as a weight-loss-friendly fruit.
Avocado is very beneficial for the eyes as it contains vitamin E and other elements needed to keep the eyes healthy and protected.
Potassium and fiber present in avocado help with digestion and constipation, which is a widespread problem. The presence of vitamin E in avocado also helps with hair growth, and it is also used in hair masks and oils to keep the hair shiny and silky. It contains more potassium than a banana.

Arthritis is a painful, widespread problem in many countries, and it can be persistent, making the patient suffer for the rest of his life. Many studies have shown how avocado and soybean oil extracts help decrease osteoarthritis.
