Agricola Gloria good fruit from the world.
Apart from being a delicious, easy-to-eat fruit, strawberries activate the metabolism, protect the teeth, and fight cellulite, hypertension and ageing. This fruit contains many important nutrients: a considerable amount of antioxidant organic acids and flavonoids, calcium and magnesium, vitamin C and potassium. Strawberries have been included among the anti-ageing superfoods in the special ORAC (Oxygen Radical Absorbance Capacity) ranking compiled by the USDA (US Department of Agriculture), for their record content in health-promoting antioxidants. The antioxidants contained in strawberries (ellagic acid, vitamin C and flavonoids) fight inflammation. They also increase the production of a hormone called adiponectin, which stimulates metabolism, reduces appetite and decreases starch absorption, and are able to control blood sugar levels and thus prevent the formation of abdominal fat. In practice, strawberries consumed as part of a balanced diet allow the body’s natural ability to lose weight to be restored. The vitamin C content of strawberries (five fruits contain as much vitamin C as an orange) promotes the production of collagen, a protein that prevents wrinkles and strengthens capillaries, reducing water retention and cellulite, and this anti-retention action is enhanced by potassium, a mineral in which strawberries are rich. Finally, strawberries contain xylitol, a sweet substance that prevents the formation of dental plaque and reduces the germs responsible for bad breath.
