Kiwifruit

One can rhapsodize about the many delicious flavors in one, but there is much more to what can be called nature's tutti-frutti. Kiwifruit, commonly known here as kiwi, has very high levels of the antioxidant vitamins C and E. A cup of kiwi actually provides over 250% percent of the daily recommended allowance of vitamin C! The vitamins and other nutrients in kiwi not only help keep the skin firm and moisturized; they help heal the skin, as well as protect the skin from UV light. Low calorie kiwi is also rich in polyphenols which help strengthen the immune system.
