According to Fiona of Physical Nutrition avocados are high in fibre which feeds beneficial bacteria in our gut, keeps our digestive tract healthy and keeps us regular. The fat and nutrient content of avocados increases the  absorption of nutrients from other foods consumed at the same time. She says avocados contain antioxidants called lutein and zeaxanthen which are important nutrients for eye health and lower the risk of macular degeneration and cataracts.
