Strawberries are the most popular type of berry fruit in the world. High in vitamins C and K, manganese, fiber and flavonoids, strawberries are filled with a powerful phytonutrient that gives them their bright red color: anthocyanidin. Scientific studies reveal the anthocyanadins in strawberries block the enzyme that causes inflammation, the same enzyme that Advil and Asprin target. Studies also link a diet that contain strawberries to lower death rates from cancer. There is no direct scientific evidence, but the fact that strawberries contain the cancer-attacking phytonutrient ellagic acid make it seem well founded.
