(NaturalNews) Exotic, delicious and still wonderfully nutritious, kiwifruit should be an important part of your daily meal plans. Identified by its small, fuzzy shape and unique color, kiwi adds a unique flavor and powerful health benefits to your diet. From weight loss to digestion aid, kiwi is an amazing superfruit able to benefit your body in numerous ways.

With amazing and ongoing results, adding kiwi is important for any diet

  • The fuzzy fiber of kiwi is able to bind and move toxins from your digestive tract.

Kiwi contains a rich supply of minerals and vitamins important for your health. Kiwi is in the 'most alkaline' category of fruits, helping you obtain alkaline balance and counteracting the excess of harmful acidic foods in your diet. Kiwi is also a great source of vitamin C, a nutrient proven to boost the immune system.
  • Digestion is an important part of your bodily functions; and enzymes, such as the protein-dissolving actinidain found in raw kiwi, help your body digest meals.

The ability to break down foods in an efficient manner is essential to your body's well-being. Once your food has been broken down and absorbed within your stomach, it must also be rid from the body in a timely fashion. Kiwi's excellent source of fiber protects your body from intestinal problems and prevents constipation.
  • Electrolyte balance is aided by kiwi's high levels of potassium battling the effects of sodium in our diet.

This electrolyte balance is important in managing blood pressure and fighting heart disease. Kiwifruit is able to reduce the potential of blood clotting by 18% and reduce triglycerides by 15%. Eating 2-3 kiwi a day has been shown to give the same anti-clotting aid as aspirin but without any side effects such as internal inflammation and bleeding.
  • Kiwi offers many other health benefits, such as protection against macular degeneration and eyesight loss.

Optical health is thought to be enhanced by kiwi's high levels of lutein and zeaxanthin. With a glycemic load of 4, Kiwi is a safe option for diabetics.
  • If bodily health and functions aren't a good enough reason to consider kiwi as a standard part of your diet, consider the beauty benefits of youthful skin, weight loss and reduced osteoporosis, as well as additional physical energy and increased deep sleep.

The low glycemic index and high fiber content of kiwi means that it won't create the insulin rush that other fruits do with their high sugar contents. This makes kiwi a smart carb option and safe for diabetics, since the body will not respond with the storage of fat. The high levels of vitamin E aid in the renewal of skin, protecting it from degeneration.

A tangy and flavorful superfruit, kiwi is an important and exotic gem, able to benefit you in many ways.
