Avocado: America’s Most Powerful Fruit

The avocado is a rather unique type of fruit (yes, it is a fruit). While most fruit consist primarily of carbohydrates, the avocado is high in healthy fats, have more potassium than bananas and has proven to help prevent cancer.

The American Heart Association also has officially approved of a healthy avocado addiction with real research.

According to their findings published in the Journal of the American Heart Association, eating an entire avocado every day can dramatically improve heart health! The study involved 45 overweight, yet healthy adults. Over the course of two weeks their average American carb heavy and saturated fat diet was monitored. Then for the following five weeks their diet was switched to one of two diets: a low fat (avocado) or moderate fat diet (like sunflower and canola oil).
