KIWI HEALTH BENEFITS
The kiwi fruit, native to northern China, was first known as the Chinese Gooseberry.
When the time came to export the fruit, the name was changed to kiwifruit to avoid the high duties charged on berries.
Kiwifruit was later shortened to kiwi because of the fruit’s shared characteristics with New Zealand’s national symbol, the kiwi bird, also small, brown and fuzzy.
Health benefits of kiwi include: it promotes beautiful skin from its high quantities of Vitamin C that work in our bodies as an antioxidant to help prevent damage caused by the sun, pollution and smoke.
The potassium in kiwis support hearth health as high potassium intakes are associated with reduced risk of stroke.
Regular consumption of high-fiber kiwi is proven to promote bulkier, softer and more frequent stool production.
