Health Benefits of Strawberries

1. Helps burn stored fat

The red coloring contains anthocyanins, which stimulate the burning of stored fat. When a group of animals was fed a high-fat diet along with anthocyanins, they gained 24 percent less weight than the animals eating the high-fat diet without added anthocyanins.

2. Boost short term memory

The anthocyanins boost short term memory by 100 percent in eight weeks. (The Journal of Agricultural and Food Chemistry)

3. Ease Inflammation

Strawberries lower blood levels of C-reactive protein (CRP), a signal of inflammation in the body. In a study, women who ate 16 or more strawberries per week were 14 percent less likely to have elevated levels of CRP.

4. Lower cardiovascular disease

Flavonoids — which are responsible for the colour and flavour of strawberries — lower the risk for heart disease.

5. Promote bone health

Strawberries contain potassium, vitamin K and magnesium which are important for bone health.

6. Prevent esophageal cancer

Studies show freeze-dried strawberry powder may help prevent human esophageal cancer.

7. Anti-aging properties

Strawberries are filled with biotin, which helps build strong hair and nails. They also contain the antioxidant ellagic acid, which protects the elastic fibers in our skin to prevent sagging.

8. Good for weight loss

The compound nitrate found promotes blood flow and oxygen in our body, which is great for weight loss.

9. Promote eye health

 

Eating three or more servings of fruit like strawberries may lower the risk of macular degeneration, a condition resulting in vision loss.
