Digestion problems are common with people across the globe. Instead of reaching for harsh chemical medicine, why not treat your ailments the natural and healthy way? JiaPin Beauty can recommend the perfect remedy- kiwi!.
Due to the clever marketing campaign by New Zealand in the last two decades, kiwifruit is thought to have originated from New Zealand, home of the famed flightless bird the Kiwi. However, this delicious fruit originates from China where it is known as yáng táo (sunny peach) or mahout tao.
The fruit is an excellent source of vitamin C, up to two times as much as an orange. It is a good source of vitamin E and contains Vitamin A, which is a great way to combat the aging process, heart problems, and skin problems. Everyone knows that bananas are rich in potassium, but not too many know that kiwifruit contains the same amount as a whole banana! Potassium helps regulate your body’s fluids, natural acids, blood pressure, and electrolytes.
Eating at least two kiwis a day can also thin your blood to prevent blood clots and clogged arteries. Kiwifruit is also one of the best natural sources of lutein and zeaxanthin, both of which protect against degeneration of the eye.
One of the best uses of kiwi is for digestion. Kiwifruit is high in fiber, which can help move along waste and absorb vitamins and minerals. Kiwifruit skin is also a good source of antioxidants and fibre with many vitamins being stored underneath. Many don’t like eating the skin because of the fuzz growing on the outside. Eliminate kiwi hair by scrubbing the kiwi with a clean sponge. Then, follow this easy recipe for easier digestion: Combine two scrubbed and cut kiwis with one slice of ginger, half a tablespoon of maltose or honey, and one tablespoon of water into a blender. Drink this first thing in the morning on an empty stomach and watch your digestion issues vanish! There are two varieties of kiwifruit that you can use: green kiwi, which is more tart, and the sweeter yellow kiwi. Try one of each in the recipe for a more balanced flavor.
