Avocados are a delicious source of healthy fat and fiber that can keep you feeling full for a long time. That’s especially helpful if you’re trying to lose weight. They’re also cholesterol- and sodium-free, and they help decrease low-density cholesterol, or LDL (bad cholesterol), when replacing other saturated fats.
Avocados and bananas are both high in potassium, which is an important electrolyte for your body. Avocados also contain other important vitamins and minerals, including folate, vitamin E, vitamin C, and vitamin B6, as well as lutein and zeaxanthin, which may help with healthy eyesight during aging.
