Nutrient works best in our bodies when pared correctly. In this case avocados are mainly fat and there are certain nutrients like carotenoids that are found in many fruits and vegetables that protect the body against disease. When these fruits and vegetables are pared with a fat, like avocado they allow for better absorption. Which basically means the body absorbs it better and then utilizes the nutrient more efficiently. Allowing for your health to improve.
