This is why you should start growing strawberries right now

This is why you should start growing strawberries right now

“Strawberries are what make life taste wonderful.” 

- Anthony T. Hincks

There’s no doubt about it, strawberries are one of the most delicious, eye-catching superfoods around. 

Besides their sumptuous taste, there are many health inspired reasons to start growing your own strawberries today:

1. They are good for your heart

Strawberries contain pigments known as ‘anthocyanin’. According to this report, these pigments could reduce the risk of myocardial infarction, which is a form of heart attack.

2. They are good for your brain

Strawberries are naturally rich in Vitamin C, iodine and phytochemicals which contribute towards a healthy nervous system. Furthermore, strawberries’ potassium content has been associated with heightened cognitive function. This is due to potassium increasing the flow of blood to the brain. 

3. They are good for your skin

According to this study, strawberries could prevent skin damage caused by free radicals. This is thanks to strawberries’ antioxidants and anthocyanin properties

4. They could help prevent stroke

Strawberries are rich in antioxidants such as kaempferol and quercetin. These findings suggest that antioxidants found in strawberries could slightly lower the risk of stroke (after cardiovascular risk factors were taken into account).

5. They could lower the risk of cancer

Research suggests that strawberries’ antioxidants could counter the harmful effects of free radicals. This could impair the growth of tumors and reduce inflammation found in the body.

You can grow your very own, 100% organic strawberries in a Smart Garden 3 and / or Smart Garden 9

While the findings of these studies are not a substitute for medical treatment, we certainly encourage you to include strawberries in your diet for the overall health benefits they provide.
