Fuzzy Little Kiwi..

Who would have thought that a little green fruit with fuzzy brown skin would help your heart big time?

Kiwifruit 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.

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.

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

So ladies!!! Go out and get your KIWIssss!!! :)
