EAT AVOCADOS TO IMPROVE ANTIOXIDENT ABSORPTION Avocados have gotten a bad rap as a fatty food, but researchers are taking a second look. The fat in question is monounsaturated fat which may help lower LDL or “bad” cholesterol according to some studies. In another study, adding avocado to salad increased absorption of alpha-carotene, beta-carotene and lutein 7.2, 15.3, and 5.1 times higher, respectively, than the average amount of these carotenoids absorbed when avocado-free salad was eaten. Adding Avocado to carotein rich dishes such as salad or salsa will help you get the most out of these foods.
