Enjoyed on their own, strawberries are heavenly. Combined with other ingredients to make for a sweet treat, they’re twice as great. No wonder strawberries are popular anytime, anywhere.

But do you know there’s more to the strawberry than just being a plate-pleaser? Nutrition experts have identified several health benefits of strawberries that can be enjoyed by everyone form infanticipating moms to fitness watchers.

  1. One serving of strawberries contains 20 percent of the recommended daily allowance (RDA) of folic acid, a water soluble B vitamin that has been proven to reduce birth defects involving brain and nerve disorders.

  2. Strawberries are likewise rich in vitamin C, a potent antioxidant that helps protect against aging and oral, esophageal, stomach, colon and lung cancers. Nutrition experts say that eight medium strawberries provide 96 milligrams of vitamins C or 160 percent of the recommended daily intake, which is more than an orange can provide. U. S. studies also indicate that a strawberry’s antioxidant capacity is seven times more than those found in apples or bananas and twice that in oranges and grapes.

  3. Figure conscious? Then take a serving of strawberries. According to the United States FDA, they’re sodium-free, fat-free and cholesterol free!

  4. Strawberries also help you fiber up. Health experts say one cup of strawberries contains 4 grams of dietary fiber, which helps lower blood cholesterol, the risk of heart disease and colon cancer, and promote a healthy digestive system.
