TopicThe Goodness of Strawberries
The strawberry is not just wonderful because it is the only fruit with seeds on the outside, Miracle Moringa Review rather than on the inside. The strawberry is also incredible for it has the ability to prevent cancer and deaths.
Strawberries are rich in phenols such as anthocyanin and ellagitannins. Phenols provide strawberries with anti-inflammatory properties. This nutrient has the ability to reduce the activity of the enzyme cyclo-oxugenase or COX which causes inflammation. Strawberries are as effective as COX-inhibiting drugs such as ibuprofen and aspirin but do not cause intestinal bleeding.
Anthocyanins are responsible for the bright red color of strawberries. They are also effective antioxidants that have been repeatedly proven to protect cells from free radicals and prevent organ systems from oxygen damage. They halt the growth of pre-malignant cells and accelerate cell turnover, making cancer cells die faster.
Ellagitannin has been linked with decreased cancer death rates. A study showed strawberries as the food most associated to lower rates of cancer deaths among a group of elderly people. It was discovered that those eating the fruit are three times less likely to develop cancer against those who are not.
The Journal of Agriculture and Food Chemistry studied eight strawberry cultivars for their antioxidant components. All cultivars were found to restrain the propagation of human liver cancer cells. Yet no relationship was analyzed between the antioxidant capabilities of the cultivars and the inhibition of cancer cells. This means that this benefit is caused by other content or capacity that is unique in strawberries.
