September is almost here!!
I can not believe the summer went by this fast! I was thinking that it was still middle of August today. lol
It’s the weekend!! Happy Saturday and today is FOOD FOR THOUGHT!! 🙂
On today’s Food For Thought, I wanted to talk about Kiwi fruit.
~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!! 🙂
