Avocado and healthy lifestyle

July 24, 2017

Positive health begins with a healthy diet or meal plan. Choosing quality nutrient-dense and nutrient-rich foods can have health benefits as we age. In fact, it´s recommendable choosing more nutrient-dense foods to meet your nutrient needs while balancing calories.

Avocados as a nutrient-dense food can be a part of a healthy lifestyle and contribute to the nutrient quality of your diet.

Why you should Choose Avocados to have a healthy lifestyle

  • Naturally good fats.
  • Nutrient-dense.
  • Avocados can act as a “nutrient-booster” by helping the body better absorb fat-soluble nutrients from foods that are eaten with the fruit.
  • One ounce serving contains 136 micrograms of lutein and zeaxanthin per 50g serving. Lutein and zeaxantin are plant pigments found in the macula of the eye, and some research suggest that they may help maintain healthy eyesight as we age.
