Kiwi’s are a good source of fiber, antioxidants, vitamins and minerals. Kiwi are known for their high vitamin C content. In fact, 1 kiwi provides more than one’s vitamin C daily requirement. Vitamin C is a powerful antioxidant that plays role in supporting a healthy immune system and heart.  Kiwi are also a great source of  fiber which helps keep our gut healthy. 1 cup of fiber contains 5 grams of fiber and adds bulk to help keep things moving smoothly.
