Zespri Kiwifruit is high in vitamin C – one Zespri Kiwifruit a day can provide you with your daily requirement. Vitamin C plays a significant role in supporting good health. It contributes to the normal function of the immune system and can assist with the body’s uptake of iron. Vitamin C is also essential for healthy skin, both as an antioxidant and as a critical factor for making collagen.
Humans cannot synthesise vitamin C and so to stay healthy, we need to source it from our diet. Since vitamin C moves through the body in our blood, plasma concentration is a good indicator of adequate levels of vitamin C. It has been demonstrated that Zespri Kiwifruit is very effective at increasing vitamin C levels in plasma.
