We know that fruits, particularly berries and those with rich colours, are brimming with antioxidants. This means they are vital boosters to your health and wellbeing. Strawberries are no exception to this rule; in addition to antioxidants and polyphenols, they contain many other nutrients, vitamins and minerals including vitamin C, folate, potassium, manganese, fibre and magnesium!
– The vitamin C boosts the immune system, protecting us from colds and coughs. A single-serve of strawberries contains about 150% of your daily Vitamin C requirement – now that’s incredible!
– Strawberries are rich in antioxidants which neutralise free radicals, the harmful by-products of cell metabolism. This process protects us against heart disease and cancers.
– The potassium and iodine in strawberries can boost brain function and protect against premature ageing of the brain.
– Strawberries can improve eye function, alleviate high blood pressure and provide relief from arthritis and gout.
Summer equals strawberries so, while you enjoy the abundance, you are reaping the rewards of some serious health benefits!
