Strawberries are actually not berries but rather an “aggregate fruit”, forming from a flower that has many ovaries. This allows strawberries to be quite complex but a delicious summer snack. The heart shape of the fruit clearly implies that it is good for you and your heart!

Health Benefits

Strawberries are rich with vitamin C which helps with the growth and repair of tissues in the body; vitamin A which is crucial for growth, development and your immune system; and vitamin K which helps fend against blood clots. Strawberries also contain potassium which helps keep your bones strong.
