RAW ORGANIC STRAWBERRY
Strawberries are known for their antioxidant properties due to high vitamin C, anthocyanin and ellagic acid content. Strawberries also contain dietary fiber, iodine, folate, quercetin and kaempferol. Bursting with flavor, our 100% pure freeze dried strawberry powder captures all the natural taste and nutrition this remarkable berry has to offer.
Strawberries, like other berries, are famous in the phytonutrient world as a rich source of phenols. In strawberries, these phenols are led by the anthocyanins and ellagitannins. The anthocyanins in strawberry not only provide its flush red color, they also serve as potent antioxidants that have repeatedly been shown to help protect cell structures in the body and to prevent oxygen damage in all of the body's organ systems. Strawberries' unique phenol content help support healthy heart function, blood vessel health and cellular replication. The phenols in strawberry also have the ability to lessen activity of the enzyme cyclo-oxygenase, or COX.
Strawberries are a great natural source of Iodine / Potassium iodide (KI). Iodine is a chemical element essential for the production of thyroid hormones that regulate growth and metabolism.
Diets deficient in iodine increase risk of retarded brain development in children (cretinism), mental slowness, high cholesterol, lethargy, fatigue, depression, weight gain, and goiter: a swelling of the thyroid gland in the neck. The natural Potassium iodide (KI) / Iodine from Strawberries is absorbed by your body more slowly and safely than chemical or synthetic iodine.
Berries have recently been pinpointed as a leading source of compounds thought to produce health benefits for women, due to their high concentrations of phytoestrogens. Phytoestrogens, literally "plant estrogens", have been of interest to the scientific community because of their possible roll in prevention of both breast and cervical cancer. Studies now indicate that berries may contain some of the highest levels of phytoestrogens. These compounds act as a natural form of estrogen. During studies at the University of Helsinki in Finland, scientists measured eight different berries for their phytoestrogen level, and concluded that strawberries have the second highest level of phytoestrogens with blackberries being the only fruit containing higher levels. Raw Strawberries may provide some protection against Macular Degeneration.
