Benefits of Kiwi

Benefits of Kiwi: Kiwi is no ordinary fruit, both in terms of the way it looks as well as its nutritional content. The vibrant green slices specked with little black seeds have always worked wonders in sprucing up desserts and fruit bowls. It is a sight for the eyes and the refreshing flavor makes it a favored choice among fruits. Said to be Chinese in origin, it has been valued for its medicinal properties since ancient times. Ironically, along with the course of history, it came to be known as the national fruit of New Zealand instead and was reintroduced to the world as ‘kiwi’ rather than its old monikers – yang tao and Chinese gooseberry. Apparently, it found its way to New Zealand via the missionaries and gained such popularity in the country that it started being cultivated commercially and was marketed as ‘kiwi’ (bearing a close resemblance to their national bird). The Europeans and the Americans too dipped into its popularity, as they readily started using it in their cereals, desserts and other food items. There are many kiwi benefits, if you add to your daily diet, it is known to improve your health in many ways.
