Kiwi is an excellent source of vitamin C, an antioxidant that supports immune function, wound healing, and iron absorption. Find out what will happen to you if you eat two fruits a day.

What happens if you eat two kiwis a day

Two green kiwis or one SunGold variety are sufficient to meet the daily recommended intake of vitamin C for most adults.

Eating kiwi is entirely safe every day, and these fruits can replace the need for vitamin C supplements, according to a small study.

Researchers found that the natural sugar content in the fruits is not high enough to increase long-term health risks.

"If people enjoy the taste of kiwi or want to include them in their diet, they should feel free to regularly eat them, as long as they are not allergic," said dietitian Emma Leng.

The body absorbs vitamin C equally from food supplements and kiwi, but most nutrition experts recommend getting vitamins and minerals from food rather than vitamins in bottles.

Kiwi helps with constipation

Since kiwis contain nutrients besides vitamin C, consuming these fruits also provides benefits that supplements alone cannot offer.

A study published last year showed that eating two kiwis a day can also help in treating constipation, possibly due to the fiber content in the fruits.

Kiwi contains a sufficient amount of vitamin C, as well as other health-promoting compounds that cannot be matched by a single supplement, such as other antioxidants, potassium, and fiber.

Kiwi contains more vitamin C by weight than an orange. Two fruits contain about 120 mg of vitamin C, exceeding the recommended daily intake for immune system support.

Consuming kiwi can be a way to increase vitamin C intake, but eating one kiwi is not enough to prevent viruses and diseases.

Physical activity, water consumption, stress levels, and other factors also influence our immunity.
