Avocados provide nearly 20 essential nutrients, including fiber, potassium, Vitamin E, B-vitamins and folic acid. They also act as a "nutrient booster" by enabling the body to absorb more fat-soluble nutrients, such as alpha and beta-carotene and lutein, in foods that are eaten with it.Sprouts contain significant amounts of vitamins A, C, and D, and there's no cholesterol. Sprouts are widely recognized by nutrition-conscious consumers and health care professionals as a "wonder food". Sunflower sprouts are rich in lecithin and vitamin D. Sunflower sprouts have the power to break fatty acids and lead to easy digestion.
