Avocados are fairly high in fat, which is why many people refrain from eating them regularly. But these flavourful green beauties are actually considered to be full of healthy and nutritious fats, which are an essential part of a balanced diet. Not to mention you can literally add them to any meal from breakfast dishes to salads, to the Yo Sox team’s favourite snack, guacamole. Here’s why you should add this incredible fruit to your diet if you haven’t already.
It’s Packed With Vitamins and Nutrients:
Vitamin K: This vitamin can help to heal wounds through healthy blood clotting and is essential for healthy bone development.
Vitamin B6: As well as helping your body convert food into energy, this vitamin can also help produce neurotransmitters (brain chemicals) that help your brain to communicate with the rest of your body.
Potassium: Potassium can help control your body’s blood sugar levels, improve brain function, control blood pressure, increase bone strength and help improve the function of all of your body’s cells, tissues and organs. So the more of this you can eat regularly, the better!
Omega-3: This is the healthy fat that avocados are full of. This healthy fat can help reduce inflammation in the body.
It Does Wonders For Your Body:
Great Skin: The vitamins and minerals found in avocados are the greatest natural tools to get healthy and glowing skin. Eating avocados can help with cell renewal and fight inflammation, which acts as your own personal fountain of youth and helps you retain youthful looking skin.
Brain Power: Eating avocados can also help increase your energy level, decrease stress and boost overall brain function. The powerful mineral behind this is potassium, which can help you to think more clearly.
They Looks Awesome on Socks: Aside from being an essential part of a healthy diet, avocados also look incredible on a pair of socks. So if you love avocados as much as the Yo Sox team then you definitely need to own a pair of our awesome avocado socks! You can find them in stores or on our online shop.
