The Kiwi Fruit was made famous in New Zealand, but originates from the Actinidia, which is native to Southern China. The fruit has a green-brown skin and inside is bright green flesh with rows of small black seeds. Kiwi has the ability to protect cell DNA from oxidant-related damage and it protects cardiovascular health. In addition to its protective qualities, kiwi provides generous amounts of vitamin E, vitamin A, vitamin C, trace minerals and dietary fiber. Its potassium levels are slightly less than that of a banana.

Some nutritional benefits of the fruit are:

  • Vitamins
