Improve Hair & Skin and your health...eat an Avocado


It used to be "an apple a day keeps the doctor away".  While apples are healthy and nutritious, for a really healthy treat make it an avocado a day!  Pack with phytonutrients, they are rich in heart-healthy monounsaturated fat and are really good for hair, skin and nails!  Other benefits of the avocado: 

They help manage weight because their fiber content is both insoluble and soluble.  Insoluble fiber helps regulate digestion, soluble fiber controls your appetite because you feel fuller longer.

They contain high amounts of carotenoids which help to improve skin's density and tone and their vitamin C helps create collagen and elastin.

They are high in Vitamin E to help stop free-radical damage that leads to skin's aging.

  1. Gosh it sounds as if avocados have a little bit to help just about everything that "ails" me! I didn't even know there was a difference in fibers, and I had no idea what carotenoids were, but I need some desperately. The older I get the elasticity of my skin gets worse and worse.

  3. I have never eaten an avocado and I want to change that but I've heard if you don't buy one that is ready to eat then it will not taste very good and I certainly don't know what is s good one to buy. I would love suggestions or I guess I could ask the grocery store people.
