Antioxidant activities

Strawberries are incredibly high in antioxidants that help your body do its job to cleanse free radicals before they can damage cells through oxidation.

Not only do these antioxidants scavenge free radicals, studies have found they bond to and remove harmful metal ions that cause toxicity. Additionally, these antioxidants improve your cell’s ability to produce energy and prevent DNA damage from occurring.

Blood sugar-regulating agents

The natural chemicals in strawberries, called phenols, fight against metabolic syndrome and insulin resistance by assisting the body to transport and utilize glucose, leading to better blood glucose regulation.

Interestingly, even when strawberries are consumed along with a sugary snack, people have much better blood sugar control with less of a blood sugar spike. Not to give you an excuse to eat sugary snacks, but it goes to show how powerful strawberries phenols really are!

In fact, the antimicrobial effects of strawberries have been shown to fight off some of the most stubborn bacterial infections like E. coli, salmonella, candida, and staph.

Who would’ve thought that the humble strawberry had so many health-boosting properties, right?

Since strawberries are so easily accessible and delicious, you can begin to harness their benefits immediately. Simply enjoy one to two servings (1/2 to one cup) on a regular basis.

Best of all, it doesn’t matter if the strawberries are fresh, frozen or stored — they all provide the same advantages!

Only eat organic strawberries

Chemical pesticides are accepted in conventional farming as a tool to kill bugs and weeds that would otherwise infest growing crops. And every year when the Environmental Working Group (EWG) puts out its annual “Dirty Dozen” list, apples were almost always at the top.

Now strawberries are this year’s biggest pesticide carriers — so it’s one fruit you need to be sure to buy organic!
