Avocados good for your skin

Vitamin-A is extremely vital for maintaining healthy skin.  One of my all time favorite foods has been found to offer 4 times usable Vitamin-A when combined with carrots and/or tomatoes.  I'm referring to avocados. It works by allowing the body to better absorb the Vitamin-A in other foods rich in Vitamin-A.

Avocado Information
Vitamin A       4%      Vitamin C      24%
Calcium         1%      Iron     4%
Vitamin D      0%      Vitamin B-6   20%
Vitamin B-12 0%      Magnesium   10%

The researchers investigated if avocados could positively help the body use and absorb vitamin A from carotene-rich foods when eaten together; like combing carrots or tomatoes with avocado.  The research compared a tomato sauce meal without avocado and found the addition of  avocado more than quadrupled the conversion of inactive Vitamin-A into active Vitamin-A.

Skin ages when it's deprived of essential nutrients.  Your skin needs proper hydration from food as well as protein and fatty acids, vitamins & minerals. If your skin is not absorbing these nutrients it will show in the condition of your skin.  Eat a diet rich in colorful vegetables & fruits, and mix them together, they work better when combined.
