3 ways that nutrients in avocados may assist with immune support

  1. Avos are high in copper. While we stock up on vitamin C supplements, copper is forgotten as one of the minerals known to support immune system function.
  2. Avos are a source of fibre (5.3g fibre per 100g) for good gut health. Did you know that your gut is home to 65% of the immune system? The bacteria in the gut not only help digest food but also regulate our immune systems and protect against invading pathogens that cause disease. For this reason, poor gut health could affect immunity. Focus on fibre to keep your gut healthy.
  3. Avocados contain antioxidant nutrients such as lycopene and beta-carotene. Anti-oxidants are powerful food components that maintain and regulate immune function
