Kiwi has been named as one of the most effective natural blood thinners, essentially reducing clot formation, the formation of triglycerides, and promoting circulation. All of this equates to a healthy heart and arteries.
A study conducted by the Department of Nutrition at the University of Oslo, Norway found that kiwi fruit may be beneficial in cardiovascular disease. Researchers looked at whether consuming kiwi fruit modulated platelet activity and plasma lipids, and found that “consuming two or three kiwi fruit per day for 28 days reduced platelet aggregation response to collagen and ADP by 18% compared with the controls.”
The researchers also concluded that eating kiwi fruit lowered blood triglycerides levels by 15% compared with control.
