Fruits form an important part of a healthy diet. They are tasty, sweet and contain plenty of nutrients that are vital for the health and maintenance of your body. Summer strawberries are one of the most refreshing and healthy treats on our planet. These bright red fruits originated in 18th century Europe as a hybrid of two wild species from North America and Chile and continue to win our hearts. This delicious fruit is valued not only for its taste but also for its ability to reduce the risk of a large number of chronic diseases. They are usually eaten raw and can be added in salads. They can be used to decorate cakes and desserts, or cooked in a variety of tarts, jams, jellies, and puddings. If you are feeling a little low, berries dipped in honey make an interesting snack.
Fresh strawberries form an excellent source of vitamin C, manganese, vitamin B9, and potassium. They also contain smaller amounts of iron, copper, phosphorus, magnesium and vitamins B6, K, and E. These fruits have a relatively low glycemic index (GI) score of 40, which means that they should not lead to any big spikes in blood sugar levels and are usually considered safe for people with diabetes. These fruits also contain dietary fiber which is important for your digestive health. They are very rich in antioxidants and plant compounds, which may offer benefits for heart health. Frozen strawberries are a great option in case these berries aren’t in season locally and need to be transported from miles away. The freezing process stops any degradation of nutrients.
Organic strawberries are known to improve blood antioxidant status, decrease oxidative stress, reduce inflammation, improve your blood lipid profile, improve vascular function and reduce the harmful oxidation of LDL (bad) cholesterol. Large observational studies have linked berry consumption to a lower risk of heart diseases. What’s more, these berries may help prevent several types of cancer because of their ability to fight oxidative stress and inflammation and have been shown to inhibit tumor formation in animals with mouth cancer and in human liver cancer cells. In conclusion, these juicy fruits are an excellent addition to a healthy diet.
