• Then it contains small amounts of Magnesium, Manganese, Copper, Iron, Zinc, Phosphorous, Vitamin A, B1 (Thiamine), B2 (Riboflavin) and B3 (Niacin).
• The heart healthy fat in avocado is oleic acid, is the same oil in olive oil. Oleic acid has been shown to reduce inflammation in the body and fight cancer.
