HEALTH BENEFITS OF STRAWBERRIES
Asian countries call strawberries “the queen of fruits” because they are super packed with health benefits. They have the highest amounts of nutrients in comparison to other popular fruits such as bananas, apples and oranges.
Strawberries are a juicy treat that is high in fiber yet low in calories. They also promote bone health since they contain vitamin K, potassium and magnesium. They can also ease inflammation by lowering blood levels of C-reactive protein, according to a study by the Harvard School of Public Health. We were pretty happy to learn they also have anti-aging properties such as helping build strong hair and nails thanks to biotin, they also can help prevent sagging skin, since they contain an antioxidant which protects the elastic fibers in our skin.
