Get the low down on this nutrient dense little fruit!

It is officially April, and that means STRAWBERRY SEASON IS HERE! One of the most popular springtime fruits, it may seem like a non brainer to devour these delicious berries. But what are you doing for your body while you do so? We’re here to show you all the benefits of indulging in this natural snack.

Loaded with Vitamin C

When most people think about Vitamin C, their mind immediately goes to citrus fruits like Oranges and Lemons. But, did you know that a 1 cup serving of Strawberries has more Vitamin C than an orange?

Heart Healthy

Strawberries are loaded with anthocyanins, which are phytonutrients that are linked to lowering the risk of heart attacks in women!

Low in Sugar

Despite Strawberries deliciously sweet taste, a serving of them only contain 7 grams of sugar – lower than apples, oranges, bananas, and grapes!

High in Fiber

Despite having 8g of carbs per serving, 2 of these grams are actually fiber, both soluble and insoluble. This helps your gut health and means that they are relatively low GI, and won’t spike your blood sugar!
