Strawberries – A Protective Fruit
We know that berries in general are one of the best fruits to eat so I want to quickly break down why I eat strawberries almost daily. Strawberries have high antioxidant power and protect the body from cancer-causing, blood vessel-clogging free radicals. These powerful berries contains over 13% of the RDA of dietary ﬁber, and yet only contain a mere 43 calories.Although strawberries contain numerous vitamins, it is mostly packed with vitamin C. Just one cup of strawberries contains an incredible 136% of the RDA of the all-important vitamin C. This make for an effective antioxidant fruit that can help lower blood pressure, and ensure a healthy immune system. Researchers have been long studying strawberry research and health benefits including the benefits of improved blood sugar levels.Since berries are one of the best fruits we can include in our diets, we recommend that you include any variety at least 3-4 times per week within your fruit servings.
