“Whether it’s vegan, paleo, keto, low-carb, gluten-free, vegetarian, Mediterranean or the DASH diet, all these ways of eating share one thing in common – avocados,” said Lyndi. “While I don’t promote diets or any restrictive ways of eating, avocados have a health halo that make them one food on which we can all agree.”
“The unique combination of vitamins, minerals and healthy fats found in avocados can help keep your immune system fighting fit, boost energy, enhance brain power, build bone, aid gut health, support healthy skin and even put you in a better mood. In short, avocados are a naturally delicious, versatile fruit that – quite frankly – make everything better.”
4 reasons why avocados tick all the boxes for every diet
- Avo can put you in a good mood thanks to the energy boosting nutrients niacin, pantothenic acid, folate and vitamin C found in the fruit.
- Research suggests that avocados help keep the gut happy by feeding the good gut bacteria with important dietary fibre.
- Research shows adding avocado to a salad can increase your ability to absorb nutrients from other colourful ingredients five-fold, such as tomatoes and carrots.
- Avocado looks after your skin from within thanks to its healthy fats, niacin and vitamins C & E when eaten as part of a healthy, varied diet. As a source of vitamin E avocados can also contribute to cell protection from free radical damage.
