So, why should we eat strawberries anyway? What are they good for?
Strawberries have a plethora of nutrients that help our bodies. Most notable is their high Vitamin C content. Vitamin C is essential in collagen production necessary in our bodies. We also are not able to make Vitamin C in our own body, so we have to obtain it from our diet. Enter strawberries (and other citrus fruits) to bridge that gap. Strawberries also contain fantastic antioxidants that can help prevent damage of cells. And in less known nutrients, strawberries contain a good source of manganese. Manganese assists our body in skin health and metabolism.
I don't need too much of an excuse to eat more strawberries, but the science sure does back up my addiction! What is your favorite in-season fruit?
