Healthy Living Starts from Within
Positive health begins with a healthy diet or meal plan. Choosing quality nutrient-dense and nutrient-rich foods can have health benefits as we age. In fact, the Dietary Guidelines for Americans recommends choosing more nutrient-dense foods to meet your nutrient needs while balancing calories.
With nearly 20 vitamins, minerals and phytonutrients per 50g serving, avocados are a good nutrient choice.
Avocados can act as a booster to help your body absorb fat-soluble nutrients from the foods eaten with them.
Avocado Benefits for Your Healthy Lifestyle
As a nutrient-dense food, avocados can be a part of a healthy lifestyle and contribute to the nutrient quality of your diet.
- Naturally good fats
- Fresh avocados are a nutrient-dense fruit
- Avocados can act as a “nutrient-booster” by helping the body better absorb fat-soluble nutrients from foods that are eaten with them
- One ounce serving contains 136 micrograms of lutein and zeaxanthin per 50g serving. Lutein and zeaxantin are plant pigments found in the macula of the eye, and some research suggest that they may help maintain healthy eyesight as we age
