8 Health Benefits of Avocados, Fruits with Vegetable Fat Content

1. Contains Lots of Potassium

Potassium helps maintain electrical gradients in the cells of the body and serves many important functions. Avocados are very high in potassium. A 3.5-ounce (100-gram) serving packs 14% of the recommended daily allowance (RDA), compared to 10% for bananas, which are a typical high-potassium food

Several studies have shown that high potassium intake is associated with lowered blood pressure, which is a major risk factor for heart attack, stroke and kidney failure.

2. Healthy Heart

Avocados are a high fat food. As much as 77 percent of the calories in it come from fat, making it one of the most fatty plant foods.

Avocados and avocado oil are rich in monounsaturated oleic acid, a heart-healthy fatty acid believed to be one of the main reasons for the health benefits of olive oil.
