- that they improve the absorption of nutrients from other foods

- that California avocados usually have a richer taste than those grown in Florida

- that they are very high in vital nutrients, especially potassium

- that one study found that adding avocados to a green salad increased the absorption of the carotenoids, alpha-carotene, beta-carotene and lutein in the bloodstream - all good stuff
