A is for Avocado – Natural Wellness A-Z

A is for Avocado!

Welcome to the second installment of A-Z of Natural Wellness. Today I’m excited to share the amazing health and beauty benefits of Avocados!

Avocados are a great source of monounsaturated fats. These healthy fatty acids increase energy and burn unwanted fat.  Avocado oil is a rich source of vitamins A, D, and E and contains levels of potassium. You can reap the many benefits of this amazing superfruit by drizzling the oil over salads, substitute mayonnaise with smashed avo. The oil has a high burning factor and can be used for frying or grilling.

Avocado oil also has amazing anti-inflammatory properties which can help reduce redness and soothe your skin.
