The green treat is also great for the heart and that can be attributed largely to its high concentration of antioxidants, vitamin C and E. The fruit is high in potassium and dietary fiber which reduces blood pressure and is good for the heart.

Helps manage blood pressure

Kiwi’s come with a lot of nutrition packed in their green flesh and they are rich in potassium and antioxidants that together keep blood pressure levels in control.

Boosts immunity

Powered by vitamin C along with other antioxidant compounds, Kiwi is known to help boost your immunity ten folds.

Helps lose weight

Kiwi’s low glycemic index and high fiber content do not create a strong insulin rush like other fruits with high sugar contents, so there is no fat accumulation. What this means, is that you can indulge in the fruit without having to bother about weight gain.

Suitable For Diabetics

Kiwi has low glycemic index which makes it suitable for those suffering from diabetes as it does not raise blood sugar levels easily.

The delicious fruit is rich in minerals and that makes it one of the most alkaline fruits out there. Why is that a good thing? Well here are a few benefits of a properly alkaline balanced body – youthful skin, deeper sleep, abundant physical energy, fewer colds, less chances of developing arthritis, and a reduced risk of osteoporosis.
