Strawberry Nutrition Facts

Strawberries not only look like a fruity, heart-shaped valentine; they are filled with unusual phytonutrients that love to promote your health. Strawberries, like many other berries, are a rich source of phenols. These phenols help protect cell structure in the body and in doing so prevent oxygen damage in all of the body's organ systems. Strawberries' unique phenol content makes them a heart-protective fruit, an anti-cancer fruit, and an anti-inflammatory fruit all rolled into one. The phytonutrient ellagitannin in strawberries has actually been associated with decreased rates of cancer death. In addition, the vitamin C rich strawberry provides people with protection against the inflammatory disease called rheumatoid arthritis. Strawberries are recognized as having more vitamin C than some citrus fruits; just one serving contains 140% of the recommended daily dose for children. They are also high in fiber, folate, potassium, and antioxidants, making them a natural means of reducing the chances of heart disease, high blood pressure, and certain cancers. Furthermore, eating three or more servings of fruit such as strawberries may lower your risk of developing age-related macular degeneration.
