SUMMER TREASURE

Super Bright, juicy and

sweet strawberries have

anthocyanin in strawberries has links to

a lowering the risk of particular types of

heart attack. On top of this, researchers

the risk of diabetes linked heart disease.

can support. The potassium contained

in strawberries has been shown to help

regulate blood pressure and possibly
