HUH? So you obviously you need to eat kiwis like this…
You probably eat just the fruit flesh of the kiwi, just like most of the people. But that is wrong, if you have to believe a recent study. The (hairy) skin of the kiwi is apparently packed with vitamins and antioxidants. So the only downside is that it does not look so very … tasty.
The advantages of kiwi peel:
1. It regulates hormones, your blood pressure and your blood circulation
Potassium, a substance in kiwi-shell, has the advantage that it positively influences all of the above.
2. It has an allergy and inflammation-inhibiting effect
The flavanoids that are in the shell – giving kiwifruit their bright green color – work against allergies and cause less inflammation throughout your body.
3. You get a healthier heart
The kiwi shell contains high concentrations of alpha-linolenic acid and omega-3 fatty acids, which positively influence the health of your heart.
4. High levels of vitamins A, C and E
If you do not eat the skin, you will miss some of the vitamins from a kiwi, such as vitamin A (promotes growth and development), vitamin C (helps with healing of wounds and restoring your skin) and vitamin E (protects cells and the brain function).
Eating kiwi-peel step-by-step plan:
The easiest way to eat kiwi peel is to first wipe away part of the fuzz with a cloth. Earth and insecticides can get stuck in the small hairs, so it is necessary to wash the fruit first. Tip: you can do this easily and quickly by mixing white vinegar with water and soaking the kiwi for a few minutes before you rinse it off properly.
