So let’s take a look at these benefits that IQF strawberries entail.
• Immunity Booster
IQF Strawberries are jam-packed with vitamins, especially Vitamin C. Vitamin C plays a crucial role in maintaining a healthy immune system and helps your body ward off cold and other sicknesses and recover more quickly.
• Prevents Stroke and Protects Heart
A study found that antioxidants like quercetin, kaempferol, and anthocyanin moderately reduce the risk of stroke and other cardiovascular problems. These antioxidants are majorly present in IQF Strawberries. IQF Strawberries also aid in preventing platelet build-up and lowers blood pressure.
• Supports Healthy Pregnancy
Folic acid or Folate is the most commonly recommended B-vitamin for pregnant women as it is a crucial instrument in a baby’s development. IQF Strawberry is a natural source of Folate that helps develop the baby’s brain, skull, and spinal cord when consumed during the early stages of pregnancy. It also prevents certain congenital disabilities, such as spina bifida, and promotes healthy growth.
• Maintains Healthy Vision
Antioxidants in IQF Strawberries can help prevent cataracts, which leads to blindness in older age. Eyes require Vitamin C to protect them from exposure to free-radicals from harsh UV rays of the sun, which can lead to damage of the protein in the lens. Not only does Vitamin C protects your eyes, but they also play a significant role in strengthening the eye’s cornea and retina.
• Wards off Cancer
IQF Strawberries contain Vitamin C and Ellagic acid, which can help with cancer prevention by promoting a healthy immune system for the body. Ellagic acid is also known to yield anti-cancer properties like suppressing cancer growth cells. IQF Strawberries also contain lutein and zeaxanthin, which act as scavengers to free-radicals and neutralize the potentially negative impact on cells.
• Keep Wrinkles at bay
Vitamin C in IQF Strawberries is vital to collagen production, which improves skin’s elasticity and resilience. Since we tend to lose collagen when we age, consuming IQF Strawberries can result in healthier, younger-looking skin. Apart from Vitamin C, ellagic acid in this fruit can also prevent collagen destruction and inflammatory response.
• Regulates Blood Pressure
Potassium is another healthy heart nutrient that IQF Strawberries are rich in. It can help regulate blood pressure and lower high blood pressure by acting as a buffer against sodium’s harmful effects. IQF Strawberries can be crowned as the most heart-healthy fruits as it also reduces LDL and inflammation.
