Kiwi fruit emerged as an excellent source of vitamin C. This nutrient is the primary water-soluble antioxidant in the body, neutralizing free radicals that can cause damage to cells and lead to problems such as inflammation and cancer.
Eating vitamin c-rich fruit such as kiwi confer a significant positive effect against respiratory symptoms associated with asthma such as wheezing.
Enjoying just a couple of kiwi fruit each day can significantly lower your risk for blood clots and reduce the amount of fats (triglycerides) in your blood, making kiwi a delicious blood-thinning alternative to aspirin for protecting cardiovascular health.
Kiwi fruit is also a very good source of dietary fiber. The fiber in kiwi fruit has also been shown to be useful for a number of conditions. Researchers have found that diets that contain plenty of fiber can reduce high cholesterol levels, which may reduce the risk of heart disease and heart attack.
