A sea of vitamins, an iron nervous system: these are not all the advantages that this berry will give you
Strawberries, which belong to the rose family and grow from a genus of perennial herbaceous plants, are not only a tasty treat, but also an effective natural antibiotic, says a Russian nutritionist and doctor of medical sciences Margarita Koroleva.

The specialist emphasizes the high content of vitamin C (ascorbic acid and ascorbate) in strawberries, which makes them a natural antibiotic, especially valuable during illnesses, especially colds. In addition to vitamin C, this berry is also rich in magnesium and B vitamins.
It is noted that magnesium plays an important role in more than 300 biochemical reactions in the body and helps maintain normal functioning of the nervous system. B vitamins are necessary for hematopoiesis, transmission of nerve impulses, functioning of the cardiovascular system, as well as for healthy skin, nails and hair.
The expert recommends eating fresh strawberries, although he also claims that frozen berries can be consumed in winter. Provided they are blast-frozen correctly while preserving their valuable properties, they do not lose their beneficial qualities. However, it should be noted that eating strawberries is highly not recommended for intestinal diseases and allergies.
