Why is avocado so healthy? 

Avocados are a type of berry that thrives in warm environments. They're also known as alligator pears or butter fruit. 

Avocados have been shown to enhance digestion, lower the incidence of depression, and protect against cancer, among other potential health benefits. 

Avocados are a good source of monounsaturated fats, vitamins and minerals, as well as being a good source of vitamin K and beta-carotene. 

Avocados contain high levels of beneficial fats. 

These fats make the breakdown of carbohydrates slow, which aids in maintaining stable blood sugar levels. 

Antimicrobial compounds are found in avocados and avocado oil. 

Avocados' monounsaturated fatty acids lower cholesterol, which may help in the prevention of chronic diseases including cardiovascular disease.
