Health benefits of Avocado
Avocados are a rich source of antioxidant glutathione (GSH). This powerful antioxidant attacks free radicals in the body by blocking intestinal absorption of certain fats and also prevents damage to important cellular components.
Avocadoes are an excellent source of beta-carotene and supply more potassium than bananas. It is also believed by scientists that avocados may be useful in treating viral hepatitis (a cause of liver cancer), as well as other sources of liver damage.
