Strawberries are fragrantly sweet and juicy, and this popular Fruit contains a wealth of cancer-fighting, health-protective nutrition.

Strawberries are a member of the rose family and are unique in that they are the only fruitto have their seeds on the outside rather that the inside.

A serving of eight Strawberries contains more Vitamin C than an oranges and strawberries are also rich in folate,pottassium and Fiber. In fact, they contain more insoluble Fiber that many other fruits, keeping you fuller for longer. They are second only to Plums as the richest Fruit in phenolics and antioxidents, being especially high in cancer and heart disease-fighting flavonoids, ellagic acid, catechin and kaempferol.

Studies on the health benefits of strawberries


Harvard researchers found strawberries to have protective qualities for a variety of cancers. A study using an extract from strawberry leaves on leukimia cells found significant cancer-killing activity.

Another study found that strawberry extracts significantly inhibited the growth of both colon and brest cancer  cells. Organically cultivated strawberries had a significantly higher antiproliferative effect that the conventionally grown due to their higher antioxidents levels.

Strawberries are associated with playing a role in reducing estrogen-driven cancer as they are rich in ellagic Acid, which can function as an estrogen blocker. Freeze-dried strawberries inhibited growth of two types of cervical cancer cells, and tumor growth.


Strawberries block enzymes (COX-2) responsible for promoting inflamation.

Heart Health

Eating eight strawberries a day for eight weeks lowered a leading risk factor for, homocysteine. In a similar study, the same researcher found that those who ate a serving of strawberries a day for four weeks had higher folate levels.


A study in animals found that strawberries had a powerful antithrombotic effect (the clotting of blood within ablood vessels), by promoting antiplatelet activity.

Memory Decline

A 2006 study found that the antioxidents fisetin, found in strawberries, was associated with improved memory and mental function, and protection from the onset ofalzimer's diseas. This flavonoid was found to trigger the activation of memory formation processes within the brain, and also enabled better memory storage by forming strong connections between neurons.

Enjoy strawberries in fresh juices, smoothies and added to fruit salad, or eaten just on their own.
