A healthier blood pressure
Researchers from the Taiwanese Food and Health Institute found that by eating three kiwis a day, for a period of eight weeks, the bad cholesterol (LDL) was remarkably reduced while the good cholesterol (HDL) had increased. Kiwifruit contains certain bio-active ingredients which have been shown to lower blood pressure. The most likely cause is that the kiwi is rich in lutein, a strong antioxidant. Which is fantastic news since high blood pressure doesn’t show any symptoms until it causes a health crisis, such as a heart attack or a stroke.
