Kiwis make wonderful fruits as they are rich in taste and nutritional value. However, check out the five major reasons why you should be making Kiwi as a part of your everyday diet regimen:

o   Lower Glycemic Index: Kiwis have a lower GI as compared to other fruits. Glycemic Index is the effect of the carbohydrates on the sugar levels. A lower glycemic index often helps you to keep feeling fresh throughout and energetic all through the day.

o   Eases the digestion: Kiwis are very rich in their fiber content and assist with the digestive process. Fiber present in the Kiwis is known to help the glucose’s release into the bloodstream and helps to reduce the cholesterol accumulation within the bloodstream. Actinidin present in the Kiwi also helps in the digestion of the proteins which cause bloating.

o   Low in Calories: Though Kiwis are sweet; they are low in calories and make an excellent dessert.

o   High in Vitamin C: Kiwis contain more amount of Vitamin C as compared to the citrus fruits. This helps to aid with the immunity of the body and helps to get rid of the sluggishness. It is also packed with antioxidants such as Polyphenols which helps to prevent degenerative diseases such as cancer and other cardiovascular diseases.

o   High in Folic Acid: Kiwis are excellent for women who are either pregnant or are trying to conceive. The fruit is very rich in Folic Acid which is essential for the development of the embryo and also helps to prevent cancer.
