Avocados taste quite peculiar, so not everyone likes them. But do not underestimate this fruit: it contains healthy fats, potassium, copper, vitamins B6, C, E, D, K and many other amino acids and useful substances.

It is noted that it breaks down excess cholesterol in the blood, improves memory, reduces the risk of cardiovascular disease, promotes weight loss, and in some countries is even used as an aphrodisiac.
