Why You Should Eat More Kiwis

SUPER STRONG IMMUNE SYSTEM / VITAMIN C

A healthy immune system is the best defense we have against microbes, bacteria, and viruses that would otherwise invade the body and destroy our health.  Kiwis provides 273% of the daily recommended amount of vitamin C in every one-cup serving! This antioxidant vitamin fights with bacteria until they’re dead. Take that oranges !(hush,I still love you!)

BOOST YOUR METABOLISM / B6

Vitamin B6 is known for its capability of metabolizing a number of nutrients to extract energy.

Kiwis are rich in vitamin B6. What a Sweet Energy boost !

Your Vegan Source of Omega 3 Fatty Acids

Surprised? It’s true! Kiwi seeds are an excellent source of omega-3 fatty acids, which, research shows may reduce coronary heart disease, the risk of stroke, and help in the prevention of ADHD, autism, and other developmental problems in children.

PERFECT SKIN / VITAMIN E

Vitamin E is an antioxidant known to protect skin from degeneration. It helps to strengthen the capillary walls in your skin and to improve moisture and elasticity, acting as a natural anti-aging nutrient within your body. Who doesn’t want that?

THEY TASTE AMAZING / HAPPIER YOU

Kiwis taste amazing especially in green smoothies! Use them in your salals with a splash of balsamic vinegar and nuts, add them to your fruit pies or to your breakfast porridge! There are so much you can do with kiwis and now you know why you need to!

    I had no idea about all the benefits of kiwis (especially the Omega-3 fatty acid source!) I’m so glad I love them!
