Well, we all know that strawberries are one tasty and delicious fruit. But what we don’t all know is that they are also super nutritious and one of the best sources of antioxidants.
In fact, many health experts would go as far as to say they ideally should be part of everyone’s daily diet.
Now, if you ask me, that’s a win/win situation: eating one of your favourites foods everyday to keep healthy!
The reason strawberries are so highly rated by health officials is because they contain a wide range of nutrients, and in particular a high count of vitamin C.
Compared to other fruits and vegetables, strawberries have a very high count of phytonutrients and antioxidants, which help to fight bad bacteria and make sure your immune system is at the top of its game.
It’s actually believed that the high level of antioxidants is actually why the fruit looks so bright red.
As well as what I have already mentioned, the little gems are also an excellent source of Vitamin K, magnesium, folic acid, potassium, riboflavin, copper, Vitamin B5, Vitamin B6, magnesium and Omega-3 fatty acids.
In a nutshell, strawberries are one of the best foods humans can eat, and in reality they give you more nutritional value than almost every other bit of food you have during a standard day combined.
Now, there is a downside to strawberries, and that is that they will perish rather quickly.
When you buy a new pennant of the red treats, it usually only takes a few days before they can begin to go off and lose their nutritional value.
To get the best out of your strawberries, it is encouraged that you eat them as soon as buying them.
