Improves Digestive Health
Kiwifruit can be consumed by itself or with meals and is not only delicious but also very beneficial. They have an abundant amount of soluble & insoluble fibre which help to maintain healthy bowel function. Dietary fiber improves digestion by increasing the movement of waste, helps make your stool larger, and encourages healthy flora in your intestine. Kiwis also have an enzyme, actinidin. Actinidin can strengthen digestion of proteins in the stomach & small intestine. For people with digestive problems, kiwis are considered as a low FODMAP food, meaning they contain less fruit sugars at a standard sense.

Kiwifruit is rich in vitamin C & K, but also have an impressive list of other benefits. Vitamin C can be converted into collagen, strengthening skin tissue and acting as a powerful antioxidant. Vitamin K helps to reduce the risk of excessive bleeding and helps you heal from any injuries. It also has positive benefits for bone strength and can help to prevent fractures.
