Kiwi 101

This tasty fruit offers plenty of vitamin C and can boost your sex life

How to buy them:
Size doesn't matter when it comes to the quality of fresh kiwis. Instead of grabbing the biggest one, opt for fruits that yield to pressure when gently squeezed.

Why you need them:
* Ounce for ounce, kiwis contain twice as much vitamin C as oranges. In fact, for less than 100 calories, eating two kiwis will supply you with 150 percent of the vitamin C you need each day.

* As the only fruit with significant levels of vitamin E, kiwis help to neutralize the free radicals throughout your body that can wreak havoc on cells and lead to inflammation, heart disease, and cancer.

* While they may not give you X-ray vision, the carotenoids in kiwis are among the best nutrients around for keeping your eyes in peak condition. Take that, carrots.

* Eating 2 to 3 kiwis per day helps to thin your blood, curbing your risk of stroke-inducing clots. A healthy flow of blood throughout the body also improves your sex life, ensuring firmer erections and — big round of applause — more powerful orgasms.
