It’s our last week receiving skin tips from Samantha Gowing, we’ve loved hearing all about the foods we can put into our bodies to make our skin glow! This week Sam tells us all about Gold Kiwifruit.
Did you know that gold kiwifruit is the richest source of vitamin C of all fruit? Gold kiwi fruit helps to enhance the integrity of the cell membranes, boost collagen production, and assists in the important absorption of iron. The fruit is high in soluble fibre making it an important ingredient for a healthy digestion and the low G.I. count ensures balanced energy throughout the day.
In addition, gold kiwifruit are great sources of soluble fibre contributing to enhanced digestive health by reducing the symptoms of bloating and improving the intestinal enzymes. This may help in natural resistance to illness due to an increased of beneficial bacteria and inhibition of harmful bugs.
Sweet golden kiwi fruit also contain high levels of vitamin E compared to other fruits. These antioxidants help to promote all-important immune boosting activity, essential for the stimulation of cellular renewal and collagen production.
