In case you didn’t know strawberries have been given superfood status. They have cholesterol reducing qualities, high in vitamins, fiber, high levels of anti-inflammatories, antioxidants, anti-cancer compounds, and a flavonoid called fisetin.
Researchers at The Salk Institute for Biological Studies discovered that fisetin prevents several complications that can result from diabetes. Fisetin is a flavone found in abundance in strawberries and mangoes and smaller quantities in other fruit and vegetables.
Several studies have shown that diabetes may be a risk factor for Alzheimer’s disease. It also helps combat the disease with its high-level of neuroprotection and memory support, making fisetin very important.
So you have another reason to eat America’s favorite berry! Add them to your yogurt, desserts, smoothies, or just eat ’em by themselves.
