11 Proven Benefits of Avocado

2. Avocado is potassium-rich

Avocados are actually very high in potassium… with a 100 gram (3.5 ounce) serving containing 14% of the RDA, compared to 10% in bananas, which are a typical high potassium food (4).

Several studies show that having a high potassium intake is linked to reduced blood pressure, a major risk factor for heart attacks, strokes, and kidney failure (5).

Potassium is a nutrient that most people aren’t getting enough of (6). This nutrient helps maintain electrical gradients in the body’s cells and serves various important functions. As such, avocado is highly recommended as a natural source of potassium.
