The avocado is sometimes called the "alphabet fruit" (yes, it's a fruit) because it contains over 20 essential vitamins and minerals: vitamin A, vitamin C, vitamin D, vitamin E, vitamin K and B vitamins, plus copper, phosphorus, iron, magnesium, fiber, protein, potassium and heart healthy fat. In fact, avocados have the highest amount of vitamin E than any other fruit and three times the potassium of a banana! One avocado contains 81 mcg of lutein, an important nutrient for healthy eyes.
You can also use avocado as a hair conditioner: Just puree an avocado with a tablespoon of lemon juice and pure aloe, adding a teaspoon of sea salt, and comb through your hair. Leave it on for 20-30 minutes while it soaks into every follicle bringing life back into your lustrous locks.
*Fun Fact- Did you know on average, 53.5 million pounds of guacamole are eaten every Super Bowl Sunday, enough to cover a football field more than 20 feet thick!
