This is a lovely & valuable article I got today in my email subsciption from their website Realage : I think this is a very good website for just getting an update about health & living. This website was recommended to me by Neelum - who knows what's best for me.. She got this info from Oprah's show which is one of our favorite shows & everyone knows this is amongst the popular shows in the world. ok going back to what this article about.. well it is about a little green fruit with fuzzy brown skin which would help your heart big time!!!!

Here is what realage & Dr. Oz & Dr. Rozien have to say about this Fruit & how it can benefit us. Eating lots of kiwifruit is like putting a tag team of heart helpers on your cardio-health case. Here's why. It's in Your BloodKiwifruit appear to put the kibosh on artery-clogging plaques in two ways: They help lower triglyceride levels, and they reduce platelet clumping. The platelet effect could be particularly good for your ticker: Although platelets aid in blood clotting, when these cells stick together too much, it could set the stage for a heart attack or stroke.

Head of the Class

There's plenty of heart-helping nutrition in kiwifruit to explain these positive impacts. You may be surprised to learn a kiwi has more vitamin C than an orange, beats bananas for potassium, and is chock-full of vitamin E and magnesium.

Dive In

Kiwifruit are easy to eat. Just slice one in half and scoop out the insides with a spoon, like you would a melon. You can also peel the skin off & cut the whole fruit into slices & you could have them put on a plate & have it with fork or fruit picks. Alternatively one can make Kiwi juice & have a glassful.

RealAge Benefit:

Eating 5 servings of fruit a day can make your RealAge 1.4 years younger.

I am sure one cannot dive into eating 5 servings of fruit immediately.. but having a few servings every week, should also be a good start. I started eating this fruit when I came to Singapore. It was the first time I got to know about this fruit & when I saw this fruit nicely cut & arranged in a stick like kebabs at a fruit stall I fell for it... & i love having this fruit...from then on...

Hope you too enjoy it.. well if not for liking, I am sure who would not like to reduce their age not just by words but physically as well.. Happy Kiwingggggg!!!
