Eating kiwi improves digestion

Los Angeles, Aug 31 : Eating kiwi fruit can help in better digestion, new research says.


According to research, the green kiwi fruit has enzyme actinidin, which is not present in any other fruit. This enzyme can deliver enhanced gastric digestion, reports femalefirst.co.uk.

"Although somewhat already recognised as a natural digestive aid, this research focused on the role of kiwi fruit in the breaking down of food protein that can be particularly hard to digest in comparison to other foods," Nele Moorthamers, European marketing manager of kiwifruit exporter Zespri, which conducted the research, said in a statement.

"Kiwi fruit is rich in actinidin which breaks down protein quicker and more effectively than digestive enzymes can do alone, making kiwi fruit a perfect choice to overcome digestive issues," added Moorthamers.

The study promotes the use of kiwi fruit as a part of an individual's daily diet.
