Kiwi is one of those tropical and refreshing fruits that are always very appetizing: whether for breakfast, mid-morning, afternoon snack or dessert after lunch or dinner.

Other benefits of this fruit go further: it strengthens the immune system, improves blood circulation, helps the body absorb iron better … it even serves to filter the sun’s rays and to protect the skin from its harmful effects in summer!

Originally from a valley in China and cultivated massively in New Zealand, kiwi is a tasty fruit that may be slightly acidic if it is not fully ripe. Kiwis grow in clusters, in climbing plants adapted to generally temperate climates. The kiwi is a very affordable fruit that can be found in supermarkets practically at any time of year and that can be taken in numerous ways.

You can incorporate it into yogurts and porridges, make smoothies, juices, smoothies and even ice cream by combining it with vegetable milk or other fruit or use it to give your summer salads an extra point of freshness.

Due to its high fiber content, kiwi is one of the most recommended fruits in cases of constipation. In addition to regulating intestinal transit, the kiwi can help you if you suffer heavy digestion.
