Kiwis are not only comfortable when eaten, but are also beneficial for improving mood. Based on bioavailability studies in the Journal of Nutritional Science 2013, consuming 2 kiwifruit per day can increase vitamin C in the body optimally and cut bad mood, fatigue, depression, and improve mood.
Vitamin C is essential for the development and functioning of the body system, such as reducing fatigue, improving immunity, and promoting the collagen formation that supports skin function. High vitamin C content in kiwi proved very useful in raising levels of vitamin C in the blood and other body functions.
The glycemic index indicates the amount of glucose released during digestion of carbohydrates into the bloodstream within two hours after a meal. Foods that have high GI figures are digested and absorbed rapidly, causing blood sugar to rise and down quickly and make the body lose energy faster. That is, the body does not promptly absorb glucose and released slowly into the bloodstream. Eating kiwifruit together with carbohydrates can control the blood sugar stability and help reduce the body’s glycemic response substantially.
This reduction is due to a noncarbohydrate component effects on kiwifruit that are capable of replacing starch with fructose, thus having a much lower intrinsic glycemic potential than starchy glucose.
