While you might feel like this little fruit is overpriced, its numerous health benefits might make you think otherwise.

Here are some of the health benefits of eating a kiwi fruit:

Being high in fiber, kiwi helps in preventing digestive problems such as constipation and other bowel related diseases and disorders.

If you need a spike of your immune system which you definitely do, this super fruit will do. Thanks to its high contents in Vitamin C and antioxidants, the kiwi fruit is also able to fight free radicals that could cause cancer.

If you are having problems to sleep, research has shown that taking two kiwi fruits before bedtime could help induce sleep.

The antioxidants and vitamins give you a youthful and beautiful skin. It’s also grouped as one of the most alkaline fruits thus helping in providing good pH for the skin. For a great skin, cut it into slices and apply it on your skin.

Kiwi does not raise your blood sugar compared to other fruits. For this reason, it is recommended for people suffering from diabetes.

Heart related problems are a major threat nowadays. You can reduce the risk of heart disease by preventing blood clotting. Although aspirin is known to reduce blood clotting, the kiwi fruit does the same thing yet it has no side effects.

The amount of vitamin C present in kiwi fruit is incomparable to that present in an orange. This makes it a great fruit when it comes to fighting respiratory diseases such as asthma.

The lutein present in kiwi fruits does not only protect the skin but also the eyes from the damaging UV-light. Besides that, it helps in improving your eyesight thanks to its rich supply in carotenoids.
