Notes

Avocado is rich in many carotenoids ie antioxidants including lycopene, zeazanthin, beta- carotene and lutien among other less known carotenoids. In addition, though 80% of avocado calories are from fat, it is good fat. These fats are anti- inflammatory and lower our risk for heart disease, helps increase the absorption of carotenoids and aids in arthritis. Not bad for and avocado’s work. Give it a try!
