Strawberries   
Eat, Drink and apply    
 
Strawberries - Who knew strawberries could be this good for you!
 
PS: Don't forget to read all the way through  
especially if you are pregnant, have bleeding disorders or are having surgery soon.
   
Thinking Strawberries with cream, mmmm chocolate coated Strawberries, well it is the season of Romance, but have you ever  
thought of Strawberry Gazpacho or a Strawberry Float. Do you ever have these as a child? 
 
There are so many yummy dishes you can make with Strawberries. Check out the different take on Strawberry specials at the Restaurant and in the Spa. 
 
 
Did you know? Interesting info about Strawberries. 
 
The Vitamins and nutrients you will enjoy when eating Strawberries - Vit A and C, Folate, Magnesium, Potassium, Calcium (great if you don't eat dairy), Fibre and to a lesser extent, strawberries
also contain iron, copper, maganese, phosphorus, vitamin B6, vitamin K and vitamin E. Strawberries mainly consist of water (91%) and carbohydrates (7.7%). They contain only minor amounts of fat (0.3%) and protein (0.7%).
 
Watch out for environmental Free Radicals -
Strawberries also contain anthrocyanin which is a  
  powerful antioxidant which protects us from the damaging effects of our environment, especially the sun. The antioxidant power of the anthrocyanins found in strawberries lasts up to 24 hours after consumption; this makes them a great defence against free radical damage.
 
Historically - The strawberry, scientifically known as Fragaria ananassa, originated in Europe in the 18th century. And is a member of the Rose family. Very interesting reading if you are into that kind of information.
 
Calories - For those of us who count - One cup of whole strawberries (150 grams) contains less than 50 calories.
 
Low Energy Density - Foods that are low in fat and calories, high in fiber and water content have a low energy density and Strawberries are in this category. According to MayoClinic.com, low energy-dense foods fill you up on less calories, which helps promote weight loss.  
 
Diabetes - The carbohydrate content of strawberries consists mainly of fibers and simple sugars. They score 40 on the glycemic index which is relatively low and should not cause big spikes in blood sugar levels. This makes them considered safe for Diabetics. Always check with your Medical professionals.   
 
More - Strawberries also reduce the risk of cardio vascular disease and decrease blood pressure in times of stress. What a great way to calm down! Eat strawberries, no stress!
 
 
It is suggested that eating a moderate amount of strawberries through the day is the best means to add additional nutrients into your body. So it sounds like we might want to be having strawberries with our breakfast, as a fruit snack, in a salad, as a sauce or as a delicious dessert. Strawberries truly are a great all rounder!
 
Nutrient All-Star (thanks to Web MD for the following info)
People take strawberry for a wide range of conditions including diarrhea, sluggish intestines, liver disease, yellowed skin ( jaundice), pain and swelling (inflammation) of the lining of the respiratory tract, gout, arthritis, nervous tension, water retention ( edema), kidney ailments involving gravel and stones, fever, night sweats, and "tired blood" ( anemia).
It is also used for "purifying the blood," stimulating metabolism, preventing menstruation, and supporting "natural weight loss."
They do say however, that more evidence is needed to rate the effectiveness of strawberry for some of these uses. So always good to do your research! 
 
Did you know? Face, Skin and Hair
Avocados contain vitamins A, C, E and are full of antioxidants which help protect your skin from environmental damage.  

- Face: Jam packed with all those awesome goodies, a Strawberry Facial is g
reat for Anti-aging, UV Damage protection, Acne,
Exfoliation, Under Eye Puffiness & Dark Circles & Lip lightening.  
Rich in vitamin C, Strawberries can be used to make excellent face masks for people with oily skin. Strawberries are acidic in nature and this is effective to remove the excess sebum on skin as well as leaving your skin feeling nourished and revitalized. 
Skin lightening - The juice is very efficient in lightening blemishes and acne scars. Yes, please!
 
- Skin: Strawberries brighten & tighten the Skin. So good to eat & so good on your skin.  
It's a win win relationship. 
 
- Hair: The benefits. Hair Loss & Dandruff be gone. - the Vitamin C contained in strawberries is great for nourishing the skin of the hair and
increases iron absorption and hair growth. Gotta love that! 
Dandruff can be the experience of a weakened immune system.  
 
Pregnant, have a bleeding disorder or having surgery soon?
Pregnancy and breast-feeding: Strawberry is LIKELY SAFE for pregnant and breast-feeding women when taken by mouth in food amounts. However, larger medicinal amounts should be avoided until more is known.

Bleeding disorders: There is some concern that using strawberry in larger amounts might prolong bleeding time and increase the risk of bruising and bleeding in some people with bleeding disorders. If you have a bleeding disorder, use strawberry with caution.

Surgery: Using strawberry in larger amounts might slow blood clotting. There is some concern that it might increase the chance of bleeding during and after surgery. Stop using strawberry at least 2 weeks before a scheduled surgery.  
 
Please always check with your Medical professional.
