Benefits of Nilgiri Kiwi:
A recent study by the University of Oslo in Norway disclosed that consuming two to three kiwifruit per day helped blood thinning, reduced blood clotting and lowered fat content in the blood, thereby maintaining cardiovascular health.The fruit is good for pregnant women, too. A woman requires about 400 to 800 micrograms of folic acid for healthy development of the foetus in early pregnancy. Since kiwifruit is a good source of folate, which helps brain and cognitive development and prevents neural defects in babies (both before and during pregnancy), it is essential for expecting mothers.
