Avocado is a great source of monounsaturated oleic acid which helps control the “bad” LDL cholesterol and increases the level of “good” LDL cholesterol. Avocados also contain vitamin E, folate, potassium, phytosterols and dietary fibre. Although, avocado is high in fat and calorie, its monounsaturated fatty acid helps to burn energy slowly and does not store it as fat. It also keeps you satiated or satisfied full for a long time.
