Why is Kiwi a Special Fruit?

Posted 09/10/2013 | By HealthCorps

Apparently kiwi, besides being a delicious fruit with excellent levels of potassium, vitamins C and E and fiber, can also help with minor burn accidents.  The high vitamin C content can help to promote collagen production and aid healing, once the mild burn is no longer painful to the touch.  Remember to always check with your doctor before self-treating any injuries.
