Strawberries slow the ageing process

MagazineSeptember 2011 (Vol. 22 Issue 6)Strawberries slow the ageing process

Strawberries should be included in your five-a-day diet of fruits and vegetables

Strawberries should be included in your five-a-day diet of fruits and vegetables. They improve the quality of your blood, neutralize 'free radicals' that can accelerate ageing and boost your general physical condition.

It's a big bowl of strawberries you need to eat, however. Researchers tested the beneficial effects of 500 g-that's just over 1 lb-eaten every day. Those who followed the diet started seeing improvements in the antioxidant levels of their blood after just four days.

The researchers say that the changes reduce the risk of cardiovascular disease, cancer and diabetes, and also have a positive effect on the ageing process (Food Chem, 2011; 128: 180-6).
