LA Muscle Nutrition: Kiwi

Feeling bloated after a meal? Grab a kiwi!

Eating a kiwi fruit following a meal has been linked to improved digestion and a reduction in the feeling of ‘overfullness and discomfort’, according to scientists.

The exotic fruit has been found to contain a unique compound which helps to digest proteins found in red meat, dairy and fish.
It helps with faster digestion of food proteins occurs due to presence of unique enzyme present only in kiwi fruit.

As well as aiding digestion, kiwi fruit has more vitamin C than the equivalent amount of orange. Kiwi fruit is rich in actinidin which breaks down proteiquicker than digestive enzymes.

The findings suggest that even a single fruit could aid those with poor digestion, particularly those in their later years, after consuming a heavy dairy-laden meal or meaty burger.

Faster and more complete digestion of food proteins occurs due to the presence of a unique naturally occurring enzyme present only in kiwi fruit, actinidin.

The kiwi fruit enzyme alone, even in the absence of any other digestive enzymes, is found to be capable of digesting many proteins present in foods, particularly, yogurt, cheese, tuna and raw eggs, which suggests that eating a kiwi fruit with a protein-rich meal may be a suitable solution for those with compromised digestion.
