10 Health Benefits Of Strawberries

1. Strawberries Can Burn Fat

Strawberries contain anthocyanins in their red color, which can help burn stored fat in your body. Weight loss through berries = magic.

2. Strawberries Can Boost Your Memory

Anthocyanins must really wield some powerful magic, because they can also boost your short term memory within 8 short weeks by a whopping 100 percent!

3. Strawberries Are Low In Calories

One cup of strawberries only has 54 calories, yet strawberries are super high in nutrients and fiber, making them remedying and filling. And when you are eating lower calorie nutritious foods versus high-calorie junk, you can further promote weight loss.

4. Strawberries Can Lower Inflammation

Strawberries can lower the blood levels of C-reactive protein (CRP) in your body. What is CRP? It is the signal for inflammation in your body. Lower CRP means lower inflammation. This means better health.

5. Strawberries Can Protect Your Heart

Strawberries are full of flavonoids that can lower your risk of heart disease. The number one killer in America (heart disease) has nothing on you when you eat strawberries.

6. Strawberries Can Promote Bone Health

Strawberries are abundant in potassium, magnesium and vitamin K that are all essential for your bone health.

7. Strawberries Can Prevent Esophageal Cancer

You thought freeze-dried fruits were just sweet snacks? Turns out freeze-dried strawberries can prevent esophageal cancer.

8. Strawberries Can Keep You Younger

Sure, the number of candles on your cake will still be increasing each year, but strawberries can keep you looking young. The ellagic acid in strawberries can prevent sagging and the biotin content can build strong nails and hair.

9. Strawberries Can Promote Weight Loss

Aside from their low calorie content and fiber, strawberries also promote blood flow and oxygen in your body that can help you reach your weight loss goals.

10. Strawberries Can Promote Eye Health

Forget carrots. Okay, don’t forget about them, but know that strawberries are good for your eyes too and can lower your risk of macular degeneration.

What Our Clients Say*

During my FitLife transformation, I lost 70 pounds! That's why I signed up for the protocol, but the most exciting result is that I found ME in the process. I had been hiding under a pile of pounds, self-doubt, and grief! FitLife changed my life and I knew I had to share it with others.

-Lynne, Longwood FL

I started with Fitlife back in 2011-2012…I wrote into Fitlife asking for an extreme amount of help. I was 300 pounds, with high cholesterol, and Drew helped me transform my life. I lost over 130 pounds and I no longer have high cholesterol. Not only did I lose weight, so did my husband, who lost over 70 pounds!
