Kiwis are a rich source of vitamin C. They are also a good source of vitamins A (as beta-carotene), B6, E and K as well as folate, magnesium, phosphorus, copper and dietary fiber. The edible seeds contain omega-3 fatty acids.

Antioxidants are especially present in the skin, which you can leave on the fruit as long as it is organic. Kiwifruit contains actinidin, which is an enzyme that breaks down protein.

Studies suggest that consuming 2-3 kiwifruit each day for 4 weeks helps thin and reduce fat in the blood which lowers the risk of clots and blockages.
