Strawberries are rich in vitamin C and polyphenols, which are antioxidant compounds that may help to prevent the development of some diseases. The polyphenols in strawberries have been shown to improve insulin sensitivity in non-diabetic adults. Not only are strawberries low in sugar themselves, they may also help you metabolize other forms of glucose. Strawberries also contain a wide range of bioactive compounds that have shown protective effects against chronic diseases. Their antioxidant and anti-inflammatory effects can improve cognitive function and mental health. Some research suggests that incorporating strawberries, as well as other berries, into your diet can help prevent cardiovascular disease, cancer, Alzheimer’s and other disorders.
