Avocados and exercise

September 29, 2017

One of the greatest benefits of avocados is their nutrient-dense nature. They are especially loaded with potassium which makes avocados the perfect pre or post-workout snack.

Potassium is an electrolyte. As you work out, your body loses electrolytes through sweat that will need to be replaced. On top of working out, potassium like the potassium found in avocados, can help break down and use up carbohydrates so they avoid turning into unwanted sugars. You also need potassium to help build muscule.

In each 50g serving of avocado, there is about 250 mg of potassium. Plus, with 11% of your daily value of fiber and 6 grams of naturally good fats, avocados help you stay full and energized for all the activities you do throughout the day.

We recommend mixing avocados into your smoothies or taking half of an avocado as the perfect on-the-go snack. Avocados are sugar free per 50g serving and make a delicious, healthy addition to your diet and exercise routine.
