Health Benefits of Strawberries

Have you heard of the many health benefits of fresh Florida strawberries? While most consider them as just a delicious way to get one of your five a day, strawberries have more benefits than people think. Strawberries are rich in antioxidants that can improve heart markers, including total cholesterol, low-density lipoproteins (LDL), and triglycerides. Even better, you can dip incredible Florida winter strawberries into melted dark chocolate for a double dose of goodness and health. Dark chocolate keeps white blood cells from sticking to blood vessel walls. (From American Academy of Anti-Aging Medicine)

According to the September 2014 issue of Woman’s World, strawberries can improve your skin in more ways than one. The berries can:

  • Stop wrinkles! It turns out the small berries pack a lot of vitamin C. Vitamin C builds collagen, which keeps skin smooth! As reliable as strawberries are at reducing the number of wrinkles visible on your face, they might need a bit of help from other products for more prominent results. Eating strawberries alongside this anti-aging nmn supplement is an infallible way of rejuvenating cells for healthier, younger-looking skin.
  • Brighten skin! Exfoliate your face by mashing three fresh strawberries with 1 tablespoon of honey. Smooth onto skin, and let sit for two minutes. Then, gently rub skin with wet cloth in small circles and rinse with warm water.
Looking for even more ways to boost your health? If so, there is a chance that you might have heard about the potential health-boosting benefits of products containing CBD. With CBD health supplements like these Blessed CBD capsules soaring in popularity, there is no denying that there seems to be a significant amount of anecdotal evidence to suggest that products containing CBD can have a positive impact on the mind and body. Moreover, the anti-inflammatory qualities of CBD are thought to be hugely beneficial for people living with skin complaints like acne or eczema. Consequently, alongside introducing more strawberries into your diet, why not consider giving a CBD supplement a try? Just remember to always speak to a doctor before using any health supplements as not everything is suitable for everyone.
So, what do you think? Will you be adding more strawberries into your diet next year? And would you give a CBD health supplement a try? Share your thoughts in the comments below!
