Strawberry season is here! The time we have been waiting for all year. You might be eager to hear that strawberries are not only delicious but also healthy-licious. They are jam-packed (no pun intended) with vitamins essential for the body to function. Additionally, adding them to your diet as well as applying them directly on your body will do wonders to your skin as it radiates with vitality. Scroll down to find out why a handful of strawberries are so worth it this season.

What are the vitamins and minerals in strawberries?

There are many reasons for strawberries to become your fruity friends than just the taste. They contain vitamin A which positively affects eyesight and vitamin E, called the Vitamin of Youth. Vitamins B1, B2, B3, and B6 found in strawberries will speed up your metabolism. And don’t forget about the star of the show – vitamin C, the nutrient that wards off cancer. Strawberries also have a lot of fibre, folic acid, and minerals such as silicon, phosphorus, potassium, iron and zinc.

Why you should add strawberries to your diet?

High pectin content makes strawberries one of those fruits that are great for digestion. They also act as a diuretic, food that promotes increased urine production and rid the body of toxins and metabolic products. Strawberries have a positive effect on the heart as well since they keep bad cholesterol in check. They also restrict the amount of uric acid that might damage joints. And finally, since they are low in calories, you can eat them without feeling guilty.

Not only does a strawberry taste great, but it also makes you look great. It is the ultimate skincare product which contains everything you need: the look, the smell, and the result. The fruit gently cleanses the skin when applied directly, helping you get rid of breakouts. Due to the presence of antioxidants, the skin becomes smooth and firm. Your blood circulation improves and your vessel walls become stronger. You might appreciate the fact that strawberries reduce fine lines and wrinkles, too. Plus, if you have problems with dull and hard to comb hair, directly applying some strawberries can ease your burden.
