Why Strawberries Are Healthy For YouThe strawberry is among one of my favorite fruits of all time not just because they taste so wonderful but these delicious red treats are exceptionally healthy for us all.
So with all of the studies performed over the years, what have we learned about this little red fruit. Let us explore:
- Freeze dried strawberries and extracts from strawberries can potentially help you with beating the odds and risk of a variety of cancers from cervical, breast, and esophageal cancers and birth defecgs. Its the antioxidants found in this fruit and other embedded nutrients that are the main players, not to mention a nice potent dose of vitamin C and beneficial acids.
- The USDA has gone out of their way to put a stamp of approval on strawberries as these little red delights score the highest on their ORAC scale. So get on the bandwagon and ride it to prosperous health.
- When you peel back more of the research about strawberries you discover they have been attributed with contributing to lower death rates due to cardiovascular diseases and while one may need to look at the reason from a holistic perspective, one of the key contributing factors is that high strawberry consumption results in a robust intake of folate, potassium, and high fiber. Folates are important and lower amounts of folates have been show to correlate with a higher incidence of coronary disease. So more strawberries eaten translates to higher folate levels and higher potassium levels and invariably lower blood pressure and cholesterol and the reduction of inflammation throughout your body.
