Abstract:

Actinidia deliciosa is a fruiting vine. It is deciduous and woody. It consists of different species and cultivars with diverse traits and sensory properties. Various extracts of the plant have been utilized in traditional Chinese medicine to alleviate symptoms of many conditions. As Actinidia deliciosa becomes more popular, researchers focus on its health benefits such as increased antioxidant levels, improved gastrointestinal health, lower blood lipid levels, and relief from skin diseases. It can cause allergy symptoms in some individuals, prompting an investigation into its allergenicity across different groups. It also contains high levels of vitamin C, folate, potassium, and fiber. This fruit's minerals and phytochemicals have led to research on its antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties, potentially preventing cardiovascular disease, cancer, and other chronic diseases.
