Strawberries are nutrient dense and low in sugar, only 8 grams per serving, and have only 50 calories per serving (serving size is approximately 1 cup or 8 medium strawberries). Strawberries provide important nutrients including vitamin C, folate, fiber and potassium. Vitamin C helps promote a healthy immune system, and potassium promotes good cardiovascular health. Folate is a B vitamin that also promotes a healthy heart.
Strawberries also contain important plant nutrients called polyphenols such as anthocyanins and many others. Eating foods with polyphenol antioxidants may help promote healthy brain function, strong bones, cardiovascular health, and a healthy immune system.
