Heath and Beauty Benefits of avocados. Avocado health. Avocado beauty.

Avocados are a fruit, but most people add avocado to savory dishes. Avocado health benefits are highly regarded. Creamy avocados have the highest healthy fat content, especially monounsaturated fats. Vitamin E in avocados increases oxygen uptake, which is fantastic for improving circulation and aid in promoting healthy hair growth. This is just one of the beauty benefits of avocados.

Let’s discuss some of the health and beauty benefits of avocados. Avocados help to regenerate and nourish the skin. Lutein, a carotenoid, helps hydrate, boost elasticity, and preserve skin lipids in the skin. B vitamins, like niacin, helps in DNA repair and reduce redness and inflammation in the skin. Avocados are rich in biotin, which can help to improve hair strength and help stop hair breakage.

Avocados actually contain more potassium than bananas. Studies have shown that people who increase their potassium intake, decrease their risks for heart attack and strokes, as well as reduce blood pressure. Avocados are also a fiber-rich food. Fiber keeps you feeling full, feeds the good bacteria in your gut, sweeps out excess hormones in the body, and also can help to lower cholesterol.

Avocado Key Nutrients
