DID YOU KNOW?

Vitamin C plays an important role in keeping your immune system strong?

Vitamin C is an essential part of your daily nutrition as it buffers your immune system to help protect against common illnesses such as flu and cold, while at the same time providing other health benefits including:

  • Promoting oxygen supply to the body, rejuvenating and repairing cells and organs (such as the skin, bones and brain),
  • Assisting in iron absorption, providing improved vitality, and
  • Improving metabolism, which boosts both mental and physical energy levels.

Best of all, it’s now easier than ever to level up your immune system: by consuming just 1 Zespri Kiwifruit a day, you can Score 100% of your daily Vitamin C!

Even for those with a busy lifestyle, getting your daily Vitamin C can be a breeze!

FACT:

  • Just 1 medium-sized Zespri SunGold Kiwifruit contains 193mg of Vitamin C per 100g of edible flesh, while
  • Just 1 medium-sized Zespri Green Kiwifruit contains 85mg of Vitamin C per 100g of edible flesh, with both fruits fulfilling 100% of the recommended daily intake of Vitamin C (of 70mg or more in Malaysia)!
