Original Post
Thank you for the post yoko.

I like strawberries and buy them quite often.
They do have very good nutritional benefits, and you can see it from the deep red color.

They can be eaten in so many different ways, with so many other foods. They are delicious just by themselves.

Love,

Thank you yoko for listing all the benefits of strawberries. I buy organic strawberries whenever I can find them.

Here are some additional benefits of strawberries from:

Cancer Prevention

Ellagic acid is present in many red fruits and berries, including raspberries, strawberries, blackberries and cranberries. Studies have shown that strawberry consumption can increase anti-cancer activity on cancer cells of the breast, oesophagus, skin, colon, prostate and pancreas. More specifically, ellagic acid prevents the destruction of P53 gene by cancer cells. Ellagic acid can also bind with cancer causing molecules, thereby making them inactive. Strawberries have also been shown to significantly reduce liver cancer cells.
Alzheimer’s Disease Prevention

In addition to their known beneficial effects on cancer and heart disease, the antioxidant qualities of strawberries may also be beneficial in reversing the course of neuronal and behavioural aging.

Due to their positive effects against anti-neurodegenerative diseases, strawberries are helpful in slowing the onset and reduce the effects of Alzheimer’s disease.

Cardiovascular Health

Strawberries have also been linked with effecting blood vessels, platelets and lipoproteins positively, which can reduce the risk of coronary heart diseases.

Anti Inflammatory

Strawberry extracts have also been shown to inhibit COX enzymes in vitro, which inhibits the inflammatory process.
Glycemic Index (GI) of Strawberries
In a study to determine the estimated GI of various foods, it was concluded that strawberries have a low GI of 40.
