Thirsty Thursdays: Juice of the week

Strawberries are high in vitamin C. A 1 cup serving will give you 141% of your daily value of vitamin C. They are also a source of manganese, fiber, folate, iodine, potassium, magnesium, vitamin K and omega-3 fats. Strawberries have a combination of antioxidant and anti-inflammatory nutrients and so they help support cardiovascular health and prevent cardiovascular disease. Strawberries improve the regulation of blood sugar levels with decreased risk of type 2 diabetes and they help to prevent certain types of cancer including breast, cervical, colon and esophageal.
