If you use organic kiwifruit, toss them in your blender with the skin on! The skin has fiber and extra nutrients. 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. Eating kiwifruit can boost your immune system and may help lower high blood pressure.
