One of the reasons we love spring so much is because of all of the yummy fruits that come into season! But our favorite among them would have to be strawberries. Strawberries are absolutely amazing as a snack, on top of a shortcake, in homemade jam, or in smoothies of course! But did you know all the amazing health benefits they have as well? Here are just a few of the reasons we love adding strawberries into our daily diet!
Strawberries boost your immune system. Just one serving of them provides over 100% of your daily dose of Vitamin C, which will boost your immune system and keep you from spending these beautiful spring days sick!
Strawberries can alleviate allergy symptoms. Struggling with sneezing through the spring season? Strawberries can help! They contain an anti-allergy flavonoid called fisetin which helps controls your body’s reactions toward allergens.
Strawberries lower blood pressure. Because strawberries are so rich in potassium, they can counter the effects of sodium in the body and control your blood pressure levels.
Strawberries can help regulate your mood. An uncommon effect strawberries have is their ability to regulate your moods! They are full of the omega-3 fatty acid called alpha-linolenic acid, which has been proven to be comparable to a low-dose prescription mood stabilizer.
