They’re high in healthy fats, they are packed with one of the most easily-digested sources of natural fat and…PROTEIN! When an avocado is ripened by the sun, the enzymes pre-digest the protein into simple and faster absorbing amino-acids. Not only that but the avocado also helps you digest it by offering natural enzymes AND keeps you hydrated by being 74% water by weight.
