Because it is dense in nutrients and virtually fat-free, dried kiwi is a healthy and reliable source of quick energy.
Kiwis also contain the phytochemical lutein, which helps prevent vision loss, and 10 percent of your recommended intake of folate - a vital nutrient for pregnant or nursing women.
Health benefits of kiwi fruit
Beautiful Skin: Collagen, the skins support system, is reliant on vitamin C as an essential nutrient that works in our bodies as an antioxidant to help prevent damage caused by the sun, pollution and smoke, smooth wrinkles and improve overall skin texture.
Better Sleep: According to a study on the effects of kiwifruit consumption on sleep quality in adults with sleep problems, it was found that kiwi consumption may improve sleep onset, duration, and efficiency in adults with self-reported sleep disturbances.
Heart Health: The fibre and potassium in kiwis support heart health. High potassium intakes are also associated with a reduced risk of stroke, protection against loss of muscle mass, preservation of bone mineral density and reduction in the formation of kidney stones.
Lowering Blood Pressure: Because of their high potassium content, kiwis can help negate the effects of sodium in the body.
Constipation Prevention: Numerous studies have reported that the kiwi may have a mild laxative effect and could be used as a dietary supplement especially for elderly individuals experiencing constipation. Regular consumption of kiwifruit was shown to promote bulkier, softer and more frequent stool production.
