Avocado is different from most other fruits.
Most fruits are high in carbs, while avocado is low in carbs and comprised mainly of healthy fats.
The majority of the fat in avocado is oleic acid, a monounsaturated fat linked to reduced inflammation and better heart health
In addition to healthy fats, avocados are loaded with potassium, fiber and magnesium
One whole avocado provides 28% of the RDI for potassium. Adequate potassium intake is associated with reduced blood pressure and a lower risk of stroke
BOTTOM LINE:Avocados are rich in healthy fats and potassium, both of which are well known for their role in promoting heart health.
