Strawberries, one of the most popular fruits and flavors for any kind of treat possible, is not only incredibly delectable, but is also amazingly beneficial for your health! These tasty fruits are packed with more vitamin C than citrus fruits! Say bye bye to your sour face! Pop a few strawberries when you need a little extra boost!
According to Female First:
[T]he American Cancer Society, foods rich in vitamin C may lower the risk of cancers of the gastrointestinal tract. Strawberries are an antiviral, anticancer activity. People who consume large amounts of strawberries are found to be less likely to develop all types of cancers.
Say no more! That is a deal maker! “[L]ess likely to develop all types of cancers?!” Get me 10 packs of strawberries! These berries are low calorie miracle workers that work as antioxidants. Antioxidants are substances that may protect cells from the damage caused by unstable molecules, which essentially strengthens your immune system. Strawberries also contain fiber and potassium, which are important for maintaining a healthy blood pressure. Foods low in sodium and high in potassium reduce the risks of hypertension and stroke. And a serving of strawberries reach close to 10% of your daily value of potassium!
Best thing about strawberries is that they’re so versatile. Eat them alone or on a parfait! These luscious red berries (my favorite fruit) are most definitely delicious AND and more obviously nutritious!
