Kiwi can help boost your Immune System!

Eating kiwi fruit has been shown to reduce the duration of the common cold.

In fact, it can reduce a child’s risk of getting sick by 50% and can even shave a few days off of how long the elderly are sick with upper respiratory infections.

Kiwi is high in vitamin C, folate, potassium, and antioxidants, such as alpha-Tocopherol and lutein. It has been shown to have positive effects on the immune response — making it potentially helpful in preventing a wide range of ailments.

Kiwi makes a great snack for all ages. It’s easy to throw into a lunch bag or serve sliced alongside a hearty breakfast. Most people peel it, but when you include the peel, you triple the amount of fiber you get from this tasty fruit. The skin also has a unique prebiotic potency that makes it marvelous for your microbiome.
