here's everything about kiwi fruit..

    The kiwi fruit is originated in China and was known as the Chinese gooseberry until New Zealand fruit growers renamed it for their national bird and began exporting it. Today, kiwi fruit is also a commercial crop in California. Seeds were carried to New Zealand in 1904, cultivated into a commercial crop, and re-named for New Zealand's national bird, the Kiwi bird. Flightless, small, and with fuzzy brown feathers, the kiwi bird resembles the kiwifruit in a whimsical way.




Kiwi is bursting with vitamin C. One kiwi has 120 percent of the RDA for this disease-protective vitamin. Besides helping to boost your immune system, vitamin C is an antioxidant that can protect your arteries from the damaging effects of free radicals. Kiwi is also rich in dietary fiber, and a good source of potassium, copper, magnesium, vitamin E, and manganese. A serving of two kiwi fruits has more potassium than a banana, twice the vitamin C than an orange, and equals a 2/3 cup serving of bran flakes in fiber. A two-piece serving of kiwi fruit has twice the vitamin C of an orange, as much potassium as a banana and as much fiber as a serving of bran flakes - all for about 100 calories. Kiwifruit is also a good source of magnesium, is sodium-free and a low-fat source of vitamin E. Three new studies imply that kiwifruit has a role in cancer prevention; it has added benefits for the heart; and it contains two phytonutrients  known to help protect against age-related macular degeneration. All three studies reveal that regular kiwifruit consumption can help you live a longer, healthier life. Kiwifruit has also a moderate to low glycemic index of 52, making it a good fit in most diabetic diet plans. Green kiwifruit also works well as a natural digestive aid. Kiwifruits contain magnesium and beta carotene. Regular kiwifruit consumption is as effective in reducing platelet aggregation, or blood clotting, as is aspirin.
