Kiwifruit is a berry and hence it is considered to be far more nourishing than other fruits. It is an excellent source of vitamin C and is also abundant in the protein-melting enzyme actinide. The skin of Kiwifruit, if consumed provides additional vitamins, minerals and fibre.
The skin also imparts texture and can help in considerably decreasing platelet accumulation while lowering blood triglyceride levels. It mimics the action of aspirin and hence most health professionals believe that the fruit potentially holds the key in cutting down the risk of thrombosis. Kiwifruit is a natural provider of antioxidants, such as carotene, xanthophylls and zeaxanthin.
