Researchers have recently ranked the 50 best antioxidant sources among commonly eaten foods and found strawberries to be quite exceptional. Improved blood sugar regulation has been a long-standing area of interest in research on strawberries and health.
However, scientists have recently discovered a fascinating relationship between intake of strawberries, table sugar, and blood sugar levels.
As you may expect, excess intake of table sugar (in a serving size of 5-6 teaspoons) can result in an unwanted blood sugar spike. But you might not expect this blood sugar spike to be reduced by simultaneous consumption of strawberries!
That’s exactly what researchers have discovered. With the equivalent of approximately 1 cup of fresh strawberries (approximately 150 grams), blood sugar elevations from simple sugar intake can be reduced.
These health science researchers have further speculated that polyphenols in strawberries played a major role in helping regulate blood sugar response.
This finding is great for healthy persons wanting to maintain healthy blood sugar levels, and also for persons with type 2 diabetes who enjoy fresh strawberries and want to enjoy them on a regular basis.
Mango is one of the most popular, nutritionally rich tropical fruits with unique flavor, fragrance, taste, and heath promoting qualities, making it no.1 among new functional foods, often labeled as “super cleansing fruits.” Mango fruit is rich in pre-biotic dietary fiber, vitamins, minerals, and poly-phenolic flavonoid antioxidant compounds.
According to a new research study, mango fruit has been found to protect against colon, breast, leukemia and prostate cancers. Several trial studies suggest that polyphenolic anti-oxidant compounds in mango are known to offer protection against breast and colon cancers.
Mango fruit is an excellent source of Vitamin-A and flavonoids like beta-carotene, alpha-carotene, and beta-cryptoxanthin. 100 g of fresh fruit provides 765 IU or 25% of recommended daily levels of vitamin-A.
Together, these compounds have been known to have antioxidant properties and are essential for vision. Vitamin A is also required for maintaining healthy mucos and skin. Consumption of natural fruits rich in carotenes is known to protect from lung and oral cavity cancers.
Fresh mango is a good source of potassium. 100 g fruit provides 156 mg of potassium while just 2 mg of sodium. Potassium is an important component of cell and body fluids that helps controlling heart rate and blood pressure.
It is also a very good source of vitamin-B6 (pyridoxine), vitamin-C and vitamin-E. Consumption of foods rich in vitamin C helps the body develop resistance against infectious agents and scavenge harmful oxygen-free radicals.
Vitamin B-6 or pyridoxine is required for GABA hormone production within the brain. It also controls homocystiene levels within the blood, which may otherwise be harmful to blood vessels resulting in coronary artery disease (CAD), and stroke.
They help cleanse and tone the liver. After drinking these juices once a day for a month, symptoms such as headaches, chronic fatigue, abdominal discomfort, and skin problems should all be eliminated!
