The health benefits of kiwi

FIGHTS CONSTIPATION Kiwi is packed with soluble fibre, and therefore helps digestion and improves intestinal activity, making it a great ally in preventing constipation. If eaten for breakfast, it will help even more with constipation.

HELPS DIGESTION Kiwi fruit is easy to digest and helps you break down the proteins in food, as well as avoid indigestion, gastritis and flatulence. The presence of these proteins make it easy to pair this fruit with dairy products or jelly.

HIGH IN ANTIOXIDANTS AND VITAMIN C High in vitamin C, which helps to absorb iron. 100 grams of kiwi provide 98 milligrams of vitamin C. Therefore, kiwis have more vitamin C than both oranges and lemons, almost double the amount. One kiwi provides us with more than 80% of the vitamin C that our body needs.

HELPS THE IMMUNE SYSTEM This means avoiding colds and raising your defences, due to the large amount of vitamin C and folic acid present in kiwi. Both nutrients make it possible to produce more red and white blood cells, as well as antibodies, which function as a barrier against diseases caused by viruses.

HELPS WITH BLOOD CIRCULATION The vitamin E and fatty acids present in kiwi fruit thins the blood, improving the general condition of arteries. This prevents clots from forming in the blood vessels. Therefore, kiwis protect us from thrombosis, angina pectoris, strokes and heart attacks. And as if this were not enough, the fibre in kiwi fruit brings down cholesterol levels.
