  • The good sh** – healthy fats, namely HDL, a type of cholesterol that actually helps regulate triglyceride levels and protects against free radical damage. Vo fats (omega-3) also protect against heart disease.
  • Vo’s are an excellent source of carotenoids (often associated with red and orange foods.. carrot..carotenoid…). So yes, they will help you see in the dark.
  • Another anti-inflammatory champion!
  • Avo’s are also know as alligator pears – how eyeomatopoeic! Gator pears they are
