Health fresh avocados
Avocados are not only delicious, but are also full of healthy nutrients.
Most fats in an avocado are mono-unsaturated fatty acids; omega-9. Monounsaturated fatty acids reduce the level of bad cholesterol in the blood thereby increasing the risk of heart and vascular diseases. And MIRA avocado oil contains omega-3 and omega-6.
An average avocado contains about 4 grams of protein, this is much more than in most other fruits.
The sugar content in avocados is low in comparison with other fruits. A half avocado contains about 0.2 grams of sugar.

An average avocado contains 11 grams of fiber, which is almost half the daily recommended amount of fiber.
