HEALTH BENEFITS & FUN FACTS ABOUT STRAWBERRIES
Strawberries
are the most popular berry in the world for good reason! They are juicy, sweet, fragrant, easy to eat, and they look like little hearts! Wild strawberries have grown for millennia: The ancient Romans enjoyed them, and during the Middle Ages people valued them for medicinal and dietary reasons.

Strawberries are a source of various phytonutrients. The anthocyanins are potent antioxidants that help protect the body’s organs against cell damage. The combination of high vitamin C content and phytonutrients makes strawberries a good choice for preventing and fighting bacterial, viral, and fungal infections such as colds, flu, and ear infection. Who couldn’t use an immunity boost? Vitamin C also plays an important role in strengthening the eye’s cornea and retina, and protects them from exposure to free-radicals from the sun’s harsh UV rays, which can damage the protein in the lens. This definitely helps when out soaking up the sun on the beach!

An even more fun fact – in France, strawberries are considered an aphrodisiac, and in mythology the strawberry is the symbol of Venus, the goddess of love. ooh-la-laaa! ♥

      Thanks Dave! We use both. Depends what we have on hand. If using frozen fruit just be sure to use less ice. :) Happy Blending!
