Benefits of eating avocados

Avocados are a source of vitamins C, E, K, and B6, as well as riboflavin, niacin, folate, pantothenic acid, magnesium, and potassium.
- Good for heart
In every 100 g of avocado there are 76 milligrams. Regularly consuming beta sitosterol and other plant sterols may help maintain healthy cholesterol levels, which are important for heart health.
- Great for vision
Alongside the benefits outlined above, avocado is a rich source of protective vitamin E as well as carotenes including lutein and zeaxanthin which are thought to help keep the eyes healthy.
Benefits for hair health

The oil and fatty acids in avocado may help protect your hair from damage and prevent breakage. And the antioxidants in avocado may prevent oxidative stress on the scalp, which can contribute to hair loss.
- Reducing dandruff
Avocado oil used on the scalp could also help reduce the appearance of dandruff. Moisturizing the skin using oils can help to prevent it from drying out and flaking.

Applying avocado oil to the ends of the hair may help to detangle it. Using the fingers, coat the ends of the hair in a small amount of oil for smoother brushing.
