Avocados are considered to be an almost complete food partly due to the fact that they are so rich in potassium and Vitamin A. In fact, certain parts of the world wean their babies on mashed avocado! Besides being so nutritious and tasty, avocados are also a great benefit for our skin with its high antioxidants; they aid healing for those suffering with digestive and circulatory problems; the pulp is believed to be both anti-bacterial and anti-fungal and is wonderfully soothing mashed and applied to sunburned skin.

Interesting FYI: The brighter the fruit, the more beta-carotene (the substance that helps to prevent cancer) your avocado contains. Also, in some parts of the world, avocados have been traditionally used to help people with sexual problems!

Please NOTE:: Do not eat avocados or take any products containing avocados if you are using the antidepressant monoamine oxidase inhibitors (MAOI). Also, if you are attempting to lose weight, due to the high caloric count, avoid eating large amounts of avocado.
