Kiwi also contains folic acid which produces red and white blood cells and antibodies that defend the body from infections.
2. Improved mood and extra energy
Activate enzymes contained in kiwi have been found to improve metabolic energy levels and help neurotransmitters to increase energy. Research published by the Journal of Nutritional Science in New Zealand studied 35 men ages 18 to 35 years over a six week period of time. The men were either given half a kiwi or two kiwis per day. After the study it was found that those who consumed two kiwi per day enjoyed a 31 percent increase in energy.
