Strawberries are among nature's best source of vitamin C, a vitamin that promotes immunity, lessens cold symptoms, and helps your body use iron. This antioxidant vitamin may offer heart-healthy and cancer-protective benefits, too. Strawberries also deliver potassium, magnesium, and some folate.
There's more: Strawberries contain plant substances (phytonutrients), including quercetin, ellagic acid, anthocyanins, and kaempferol, that may help protect you from cancer and heart disease, among others. All that for just 36 calories in 10 strawberries!
