Strawberries are known for their antioxidant properties due to their vitamin C, anthocyanins and ellagic acid content. Strawberries also contain dietary fibre, iodine, folate, quercetin, and kaempferol.
The antioxidants in strawberries are led by the anthocyanins and ellagitannins. The anthocyanins in strawberry not only provide its flush red colour, they also serve as potent antioxidants that have repeatedly been shown to support the protection of healthy cell structures in the body as well as the protection of oxygen damage in all of the body’s organ systems.
Strawberries’ unique phenol content helps support healthy heart and blood vessel function.
Strawberries are a great natural source of Iodine. Iodine is a chemical element essential for the production of glandular secretions that support a healthy metabolism. The natural Iodine from Strawberries is absorbed by your body more slowly and safely than chemical or synthetic iodine.
Strawberries are also linked to healthy vision. Your mother may have told you carrots would keep your eyes bright as a child, but as an adult, it looks like fruit is even more important for keeping your sight. Data reported in a study published in the Archives of Ophthalmology indicates that eating 3 or more servings of fruit per day may support eye health, by 36%, compared to persons who consume less than 1.5 servings of fruit daily.
