People often call me the strawberry lady. I love strawberries, and I can actually eat them everyday. It wasn’t until recently that I found out that they are actually good for your health. Upon my recent research I found out strawberries can help prevent diabetes. Diabetes is a disease that runs in my family, so once I found out that information I started eating a cup of strawberries everyday. While doing my research I found out strawberries can help aid more than diabetes. To find out more benefits about eating strawberries keep reading my post below. I will also list a recipe for a healthy strawberry smoothie in case you are not a person who normally eats strawberries on their own.
BENEFITS OF EATING STRAWBERRIES
Strawberries are good for your heart– Anthocyanins are natural plant chemicals found in strawberries. A high dosage of anthocyanin is associated with a lower risk of heart attacks in women. To have exact measurements eating a cup of strawberries 3x a week is the perfect amount to lower the risk of heart disease.
Strawberries are good for your mind– I heard that blueberries were great for your mind, but who knew that strawberries could lower the risk of Alzheimer’s disease. Eating strawberries can lower the disease by more than one-third.
Strawberries have less sugar than many realize– People think that strawberries are high in sugar. It is actually the complete opposite, strawberries have less sugar than most fruits. Strawberries actually contain the lowest amount of sugar (7 grams) per one-cup serving.
Strawberries have more vitamin C – Facts state that a one-cup serving of strawberries has more vitamin C than an orange. Vitamin C is known for its antioxidant properties, helping to protect the body from oxidative stress.
