Energy Boosting Power From Kiwi Fruit

Dr. Oz invited a dietician on to the show (Kate Geagan) to talk about how Kiwi is a power packed energy boosting fruit.  She is the author of “Go Green, Get Lean” and she says that many people just don’t realize how nutritionally dense and powerful kiwi really is for their body.  She says that just two kiwi has more potassium than a banana and twice the calcium of an orange.  Not only that it has as much fiber as bran flakes.  Simply eating two kiwi’s of day can do wonders for your health and your energy levels.  Also add on the fact that two kiwi only has 100 calories, you can easily see why Kate believes kiwi is a superfruit with a kick.

Dr. Oz 1 Minute Wake Up Energy Boosting Plan

Take these 5 easy steps to give yourself a quick boost in energy..

  1. Stand up lace your hands together. Lift your hands over your head inside out with your fingers laced.  Inhale.  Lower your hands down slowly to your knees while you exhale.  Dr. Oz said that this helps to oxygenate your body and improves your lymphatic flow.
  2. Wing flap – Stand with your arms out to your side (like a scarecrow).  With your elbows still up and out to yourside flap your arms back and forth.   This gets your lymphatic system working, your heart rate going, and improves your circulation.
  3. Put your hands in front of your face in a prayer position.  Bring each leg up to your elbows.  This helps to improve the circulation in your legs and to release toxins.

Dr. Oz said that doing these simple exercises will increase your energy any time of the day.  Morning, noon, or night and it only takes a minute!
