Kiwi – The Real Superfood (Backed by Science)
What if I told you for once, that there is a real superfood out there?
One that is packed with nutrients and beats the most common fruits?
One that you can find in almost every supermarket?
Time to unveil the power of Kiwifruit! 🙂
So let's take a quick dive into the science!
Kiwi crushes oranges having double the vitamin C. And those perfect red strawberries? Crushed as well.
Kiwis are packed with vitamin E and K. Much more than you'd find in apples, bananas, and blueberries.
Did you know the vitamin E content is twice that of avocado?
And if that wasn't even enough, have a look at the minerals 🙂
A single kiwi has AS MUCH potassium as 1 medium sized banana.
Kiwi is also an excellent source of folic acid.
And it scores really good for copper as well.
But what about benefits of including Kiwis in your diet?
Kiwi for Dieting
Kiwi is perfect for dieting. A medium sized one contains roughly 50 calories, and it beats most fruits on fiber content.
And we all know, fiber is really important for enhancing fullness.
Immune System and Sleep
Turns out just eating Kiwis can reduce the incidence and symptoms of the common cold and flu!
If that isn't awesome, I don't know what is. 🙂
Now, we all know how vital Sleep is for health and fitness.
Can you name one fruit that helps you sleep better?
I couldn't until I learned this…
Research showed that eating kiwis can help with transitioning into sleep. It also increases duration and quality of sleep.
The awesomeness doesn't stop there.
Eating kiwis help with digestion of proteins in the stomach and intestine.
And it even enhances iron absorption!
Remember the high fiber contents of Kiwifruit? That helps with constipation as well.
Overall, Kiwi is one of the most underestimated and underappreciated fruits out there.
And it's safe to say, a kiwi a day keeps the doctor away. 🙂
