The combination of healthy monounsaturated fat, plenty of fiber, and phytosterols found in avocados make this fruit a nutritional powerhouse. Avocados are also a good source of potassium, magnesium, folate, vitamin K, and copper as well as the antioxidant vitamins C and E, carotenoids, and polyphenols. Because avocados are so high in fiber (5 to 8 grams per half), they are satiating. This means eating avocados regularly may stem hunger for longer periods of time and therefore help in controlling bodyweight.
