Thanks for the compliment javagrandma!

Avocado's are beneficial for lowering cholesterol, despite of avocado fat content and carbohydrate.

The reason is that avocado is a great source of heart-healthy monounsaturated fat. The avocado fat is a type of fat that may actually help to raise levels of HDL ("good"cholesterol) which actually protects arteries, while lowering levels of LDL ("bad" cholesterol).

In case you are not familiar, HDL or the good cholesterol is the one that cleanses the arteries from the LDL or bad cholesterol build up. So, it flows naturally that the higher the HDL/good cholesterol the less is LDL/bad cholesterol.

You need not worry about the avocado content of fat, as this fat is not harmful nor does it increase your cholesterol levels.

Hope that helps!

Love your tip on the avocado...can you tell me why it is a good fat. I've always heard the avocados are very fattening. Have an energizing day!
