Avocados are one of the healthiest foods on the planet. They are packed with healthy fats (or monounsaturated fats) which are essential for keeping our cells healthy. Avocados are helpful for decreasing inflammation in the body, healthy brain function, lowering cholesterol, decreasing insulin sensitivity, and lubrication of the joints and the digestive tract.
