Kiwis can help repair DNA damage.


Kiwifruit has been quoted as being the most nutrient dense fruit out of 27 of the most commonly eaten fruits. It is particularly high in vitamin C, fibre, potassium and vitamin E. It also contains the phytochemical lutein, which may reduce the risk of cancer, heart disease and cataracts.

Like açai berries, blueberries and cherries, kiwifruit also contains anthocyanin, which is believed to provide protection against both cancer and heart disease.

Research at the Rowett Research Institute has shown that consuming kiwifruit as part of your daily diet can protect DNA from damage, and can actually help to repair existing DNA damage. Other studies have also shown that kiwifruit extracts can be effective in destroying oral tumour cells.

Recent studies on diets rich in lutein and zeaxanthin, have shown protective effects in relation to cataracts and other forms of macular degeneration, so Kiwis could be vital to maintaining your eyesight as you age. Add apricots as a source of vitamin A and carotenoids, and you have a serious combination to help your eyesight.
