Strawberries, Vitamin C, and Your Health

If you love strawberries then you should know that they are a sodium free, fat free, cholesterol free, low calorie food- containing around only 50 calories per cup! What you may not know is that strawberries pack more vitamin C per serving than an orange, and the best part is that they’re lower in sugar than most other fruits!
Strawberries also provide a good dose of fiber, folic acid, manganese, and potassium AND contain high levels of antioxidants known as polyphenols. Polyphenols help protect the body against oxidative stress, disease, and inflammation so they’re a potent preventative “medicine” that can improve your health. 
So if you aren’t including strawberries in your diet then you’re missing out on the potential health benefits for your life. Treat your food as medicine now, otherwise you’ll be forced to use medicine as food later. Do your health a favor and start reaching for a handful of strawberries instead of a bag of chips.
