Avocados: Did You Know?
Avocados are a source of vitamins C, E, K, and B6, as well as riboflavin, niacin, folate, pantothenic acid, magnesium, and potassium. They also provide lutein, beta carotene, and omega-3 fatty acids. Avocados contain high levels of healthy, beneficial fats, which can help a person feel fuller. Eating fat also slows the breakdown of carbohydrates, which helps keep blood sugar levels stable.
