~Saturday’s Food For Thought Is Kiwi~

  • This fruit is definitely not one of my favorites, but after reading about the great benefits it has to offer, I will eat one. 
  • Kiwi’s have a very rich source of soluble dietary fiber, which makes it a good laxative. 
  • This fruit has an excellent source of Vitamin C. Vitamin C helps the body develop resistance against infectious agents. 
  • Kiwi also contains high levels of Vitamin A, E, and K. Vitamin K helps to enrich the bones. 
  • Did you know that kiwi fruit seeds have Omega 3 Fatty Acids?! Yes, and researchers have noticed that the omega 3’s in kiwi help reduce the risk of heart disease, stroke, and help prevent the development of ADHD. 
  • Kiwi also has a very rich source of Potassium. 100 grams of kiwi, contains 7 % of the daily recommended dose. Potassium is very important for us because it helps regulate the heart rate and blood pressure. 
  • Last, kiwi contains minerals like manganese, iron, and magnesium. Magnesium plays an important roll to help strengthen the bones.
 
Hope you enjoyed this post, and go grab a kiwi!! 🙂
– Cheers
