Kiwis for Quickies
Get the Benefits of Kiwis for Yourself!
The Kiwi fruit is fairly new to most of the world, but this sweet/tart fruit is actually China's national fruit. It has been harvested in China for more than 300 years. When it was first introduced to the rest of the world in the 20th century, it went through many names until finally in the 1950s the name Kiwi became official. This ultra delicious fruit wasn't produced in America until the 1970s. Since then it has become a favorite and for many reasons.
Kiwi Fruit contains more Vitamin C than an orange and more potassium than a banana. It also contains vitamin A, E, phosphorus, magnesium, and copper. It's rich in antioxidants and enzymes. It has excellent oral chelating agents that help clean the arteries to allow for a good erection as well as allow blood into the female genital region as well for enhanced pleasure.
There is a lot you can do with Kiwi Fruit, from eating them alone to adding them to salads, desserts, and a variety of other recipes. You can tell when they are fresh when they are pliant, yet still somewhat firm to the touch and have a fresh smell. Then peel them, slice them and serve them! You can just cut a Kiwi in half and dig the succulent lime green morsels out with a spoon as well.
