Kiwis are those small, fuzzy, oval fruits made popular in New Zealand but now enjoyed worldwide. Inside the peel is green flesh that’s sweet and tangy. But behind the delicious taste, kiwi packs a lot of nutrition, including vitamins C, K, and E, folate, and potassium. It also has a good deal of fiber and antioxidants, both of which can improve your life significantly.
Even if you haven’t eaten a whole kiwi fruit before, chances are you are familiar with the taste as it is commonly used in combination with strawberry for juices and fruit toppings. Kiwi is also a frequent star in store-bought smoothies. But we’re here to encourage you to bring kiwi home.
Because they are currently grown in multiple world locations, kiwis can be purchased year-round. From November-May you will find kiwi from California, while during the months of June-October, it will likely have been imported from New Zealand.
But wherever it is from, studies show that eating the equivalent of three kiwi fruits every day can have some major health benefits. We were especially surprised by #4. So don’t hesitate – read up on all the great things kiwi can do for your body, then go out and get some!
