Avocados – The Best Complete Super Food

Avocados are the fruit of a small, subtropical tree. They are rich in vitamin A, some B-complex, C, and E vitamins, and potassium, and because they contain some protein and starch, as well as being a good source of monounsaturated fats, they are considered to be a perfect – or a complete food. Traditionally avocados have been used for skin problems. The pulp has both antibacterial and antifungal properties.
