Plant & Food scientists have found a link between gold kiwifruit and reducing cold symptoms.

Their study found that regular consumption of gold kiwifruit reduced the duration of sore throat and head congestion and the severity of head congestion.

The 20-week study tracked the health of 37 healthy older people during the winter and spring.

The research was sponsored by Zespri.
