Immune system will be strong
Kiwi fruit also helps in boosting immunity due to the presence of Vitamin C and various polyphenols. Research has found that individuals who consumed kiwi fruit three times per day and in the meantime did not consume any other fruit, juice or supplement, had significantly lower oxidative stress. In addition to vitamin C, kiwi fruit contains vitamin E and polyphenols such as caffeic acid, quercetin, epicatechin and naringenin. These antioxidants and polyphenols protect against heart diseases and lower lipid profile.

Keep heart healthy
Uncontrolled plasma glucose levels, high levels of total cholesterol, high levels of triglycerides, obesity, high blood pressure and platelet aggregation are common causes of heart disease. Research has seen that the vitamins, minerals, antioxidants and polyphenols present in kiwi reduce the risk of heart diseases. However, different fruits contain different proportions of antioxidants and polyphenols. A study published in 2004 reported that kiwis contain high amounts of polyphenols and antioxidants (vitamin C and vitamin E). This study also found that consuming 2 to 3 kiwis daily reduced platelet aggregation and triglyceride levels. In this way, the use of kiwi daily keeps the heart safe and can get rid of the problem of heart disease.

Beneficial in pregnancy
This Yadubhut fruit is especially good for mothers. It reduces the chances of miscarriage by giving them the necessary nutrition. Kiwi helps transfer important vitamins from a pregnant woman to her baby. It prevents birth defects like spina bifida (condition where the spinal cord is not fully developed). Apart from this, folate is found in kiwi. These nutrients are most important for the health and development of the unborn baby.

Keep blood pressure low
Kiwi is high in potassium, due to which it can be beneficial in reducing high blood pressure. People with high blood pressure are at increased risk of heart disease and stroke. Therefore, it is very important to keep the blood pressure level normal to reduce the risk of these diseases. But people who have low blood pressure problems should use kiwi with caution as it can further reduce blood pressure. A study published in 2015 compared the effects of kiwis and apples on blood pressure. It was seen in the study that people who consumed kiwi daily had a decrease in their blood pressure. Kiwis are rich in antioxidants and potassium which act as vasodilators (relaxes the cells in the blood vessels leading to increased blood flow) in people suffering from blood pressure and thus lowers blood pressure.
