Kiwi Nutrition

What does a kiwi fruit and nutrition have in common?

Kiwi fruit is a small, brown, fuzzy fruit most often overlooked at the grocery store. Most people find kiwis unappealing on the outside; not as alluring as a red apple or exotic mango. Kiwis are tiny and tend to be forgotten when it comes to choosing which fruits to eat for ones health.

For most people, the word “nutrition” does not invoke the most appealing thoughts to mind. Nutrition is often thought of as boring and bland. To some, nutrition does not seem a significant factor in one’s health and wellbeing and is often ignored.

When sliced open a kiwi fruit reveals it’s tropical green flesh speckled with little seeds. For their small size Kiwi’s pack quite a punch. In particular, they contain a greater amount of Vitamin C than oranges, as much potassium as bananas and are a more significant source of protective beta-carotene than carrots. Consuming kiwi fruit (in addition to a diet rich in other fruits and vegetables) has been shown to improve the health of individuals and protect against disease.

When one takes the time to learn about good nutrition, they are often amazed at how delicious, energizing and even how fun it can be! Often seen as playing a minor role in healthcare, good nutrition has been proven to dramatically improve the health and well being of individuals and has the ability to protect against all kinds of disease from cardiovascular problems to cancer and obesity.
