Avocado has good cholesterol. The fat content in avocado is mono-unsaturated fat that actually help you lower your bad (LDL) cholesterol. Avocado contains more of the cholesterol-smashing beta-sitosterol (a beneficial plant-based fat) than any other fruit. Beta-sitosterol reduces the amount of cholesterol absorbed from food.
