However, latest studies and research conducted in Italy, studies show that children who consume 5 to 7 portion of the fruit in a week manifest a healthier respiratory tract. These children ages from 6 to 7 years old exhibited less sneezing, wheezing and coughing as compared to the children who had the fruit less than a week. The end result shows that shortness of breath, severe wheezing, chronic cough and night cough, and runny nose incidents have plunged down to a considerable low degree, around 35% give or take.

The results simply demonstrate that Vitamin C, potassium and other beneficial substances innate of the kiwi is hard at work. These substances like the flavonoids protect the body from cell oxidative deterioration.
