Strawberry Benefits

The strawberry is a superstar when it comes to antioxidant power. Antioxidants help neutralize harmful "free radicals" that can lead to cancer. In addition, 1 cup of strawberries gives you a whopping 140 percent of your recommended daily allowance of vitamin C.

Strawberries are also packed with flavonoids, two in particular, called quercetin and kaempferol. Research shows that these two flavonoids help keep "bad" (LDL) cholesterol from oxidizing and damaging artery walls.

Other health benefits of strawberry include eye care, proper brain function, and relief from high blood pressure, arthritis and gout.
