Everyone tends to think of oranges as the best source of vitamin C, but a single kiwi fruit packs twice the vitamin C as an average orange.

In addition to their vitamin C, kiwis contain a rare, fat free form of vitamin E. They are also rich in vitamin A, K, B, copper, folate, magnesium and fiber. Kiwis are also high in potassium, with two average sized kiwi fruits providing as much potassium as a banana.

For those of us who need some help waking up in the morning, kiwis are high in serotonin, which promotes alertness. Serotonin also boosts learning, memory, and mood, therefore setting you up for success throughout the day!
