The Costa Tropical is one of the places in Spain where avocado is produced and cultivated the most, so today we will talk a little about the benefits of this fruit that is very popular all over the world. The water content of avocado is lower than that found in most fruits and is characterized by its high caloric value, reaching 167 kcal per 100 grams. The fat content represents more than 80% of the total caloric value, predominantly monounsaturated fats, which have a hypocholesterolemic effect, ie reduce LDL cholesterol, the so-called ''bad'' cholesterol and can increase HDL ''good'' cholesterol, therefore help prevent cardiovascular diseases (heart attack, heart failure ...). In addition, the content of saturated fats is minimal, which reduces the intake of cholesterol. Avocado contains high levels of Vitamin E, vitamins A and C and vitamins B12. Regarding micronutrients, it is rich in mineral salts such as magnesium, potassium, phosphorus and iron. Its fiber supply is around 2-3 grams per 100 grams of avocado, being soluble and insoluble, causing greater feeling of satiety. It favors intestinal transit, decreases and helps prevent constipation and colorectal cancer, contributing to blood sugar control. Its ingestion is beneficial in diabetics.
