BEHIND BEAUTY: Avocados & their health benefits: body and skin
Rich in vitamins, fiber, folic acid, and potassium, avocados are known as the world’s healthiest fruit! Avocados come in more than 80 varieties; the most well known being the Haas Avocado (aka the Alligator Pear).
Avocados are known for such health benefits as lowering cholesterol, regulating blood pressure, prevention of heart diseases, and protection against eye disease. Since they are so rich in folate, they can even help cut the risk of birth defects for a pregnant mother’s unborn baby. Last, but not least, since avocados are such a potent antioxidant they help to protect your body’s cells from free radical damage which leads to disease.
As if the overall health benefits weren’t enough, avocados are also great for the skin! They are known as Mother Nature’s skin moisturizer and even help to treat skin problems like eczema. Avocado oil is very similar to our skin’s natural oil which makes it the perfect consistency, not too oily and not too light. Avocados are full of healthy fats and phytonutrients that sooth and protect the skin leaving it healthy and supple.
