9. Helps with Weight Loss

Although avocados are high in fat and calories, they are still considered good for weight loss. The monounsaturated fat in avocados is one of the ‘good’ fats that will help satisfy your hunger and make you feel full so you eat less overall. Many other types of fat are bad for your health and can take longer to burn off.

Avocados are also high in L-carnitine, an amino acid used in metabolizing fat. They also have good amounts of soluble and insoluble fiber, both of which your body needs to keep its digestive system running smoothly. Eating foods rich in fiber is also effective for weight loss.

10. Promotes Eye Health

Avocados also help in maintaining healthy eyesight. Avocados are rich with carotenoid lutein, an antioxidant that protects the eyes from oxidative stress damage leading to cataracts and macular degeneration, which are usually age-related.

Also, the vitamin E in avocados helps protect the eyes against retinopathy, a condition caused by damage to the retina.

Now that you know the health benefits of avocados, it is time to start thinking of including them in your diet. You can add them to salads, sandwiches and dips or eat them plain.
