What are the Benefits of Eating Strawberries?

 

Strawberries are a great source of vitamin C, which can have multiple health benefits; it can contribute to normal collagen formation for the normal function of skin, and to the normal function of the immune system.

 

Strawberries are also naturally rich in antioxidants, which means they could play a role in tackling oxidative stress caused by free radicals from the environment. Oxidative stress can manifest itself in many different forms, including dull skin and even premature fine lines and wrinkles.
