Wow... fascinating point that lycopene is absorbed so much easier when combined with avocados. That combines two of my salad favorites... tomatoes & avocados!!

It's really interesting to me, that even the Dietary Supplement Information Bureau, advocates getting things like lycopene and other minerals through natural foods as much as possible.

Great post, I would add a few more benefits I've found, such as:

It’s a good source for vitamins, A, B-complex,

C, E, H, K, and folic acid. Also it contains the minerals magnesium,

copper, iron, calcium and potassium.

It regulates your metabolism, which actually prevents weight gain.

Vegetarians that eat avocado regularly report softer hair,

smooth skin, less joint problems,

less body odor, better mental state and stronger libido.

The Avacado has come into it's own these past 10 years and is now a staple of Produce. The benefits of the Avacado are coming to light and will introduce a whole new category! Having been in the business all my life, it never ceases to amaze me that there is no such thing as we have seen it all. Just look around the next corner!
