Avocados contain more potassium (a mineral which helps your body maintain a normal water balance) than bananas. They also contain 26% of the recommended daily allowance of vitamin K (bone health and blood clotting) and 20% of your folates (important for red blood cells and your energy levels).
"Avocados are also a great source of omega-3 fatty acids, which may naturally boost your mood," says Vagnini.
