Are Strawberries the Next Superfood? ...

Personally, I could eat strawberries all day, every day. They're jam-packed with nutrients and have a wide array of health benefits. Here's what's so good about this awesome berry:

1 Antioxidants

Strawberries have been ranked the 3rd best source of antioxidants among all US foods!

2 Cardiovascular Benefits

Strawberries' rich array of vitamins decreases circulating fats and lowers cholesterol levels!

3 Blood Sugar Levels

Did you know that strawberries have a moderating effect on blood sugar levels?

4 Cancer Prevention

Phytonutrients in strawberries have been shown to reduce the risk of breast, cervical, colon, and esophageal cancer.

5 Weight Loss

Anthocyanins in strawberries makes the body burn stored fat at a faster rate! The fact that strawberries are very low in calories (just 54 calories in a cup) is a huge bonus.

Are you a fan of strawberries? How do you incorporate them into your diet?
