These nutrients have a good effect on the growth and development of children and are also beneficial to the health of the elderly.
In particular, rich vitamin C may cause bleeding gums, promote wound healing, and cause skin to be delicate and elastic.
銆€銆€The motherland medicine believes that the strawberry is sweet, cool, has the effect of moistening the lungs and promoting fluid, strengthening the spleen and stomach. After eating a few strawberries, it helps digest the appetizer, spleen and fluid.
Recently, medical scientists have found that regular consumption of strawberries also has complications in catheter sclerosis and coronary heart disease.
According to research by foreign medical scientists, strawberries contain anti-cancer ingredients that inhibit the growth of tumor cells.
In Europe, strawberries have long been known as the 鈥淨ueen of Fruits鈥?and are used as health foods for children and the elderly.
銆€銆€Two things to pay attention to when eating strawberries: 鈼?First, do not buy deformed strawberries.
Normally grown strawberries have a heart-shaped appearance, but some strawberries are fresh and large, with deformed protrusions on the granules, and hollow in the middle after biting.
This malformed raspberry is often caused by the abuse of hormones during the planting process. Long-term consumption of such fruits in large quantities may damage human health.
Especially pregnant women and children, can not eat malformed berries.
銆€銆€鈼?In addition, since strawberry is a low grass stem plant, although it is cultivated and grown in the mulch, it is easily contaminated by dirt and bacteria during the growth process, so it is necessary to “clean” before the entrance of the strawberry.
銆€銆€The correct cleaning method for strawberries is the time when strawberries are on the market. The red looks are very attractive.
However, the surface of the strawberry is rough, how to clean it, but it makes many people have headaches.
The main nutritional value of strawberries is reflected in their high vitamin C content.
Acute research has found that in addition to preventing scurvy, vitamin C has a positive preventive effect on arteriosclerosis, coronary heart disease, angina pectoris, cerebral hemorrhage, hypertension, and hyperlipidemia.
In addition, carotene in strawberry is an important substance for the synthesis of vitamin A, which has the functions of eyesight and liver growth.
The latest foreign research also pointed out that strawberries contain an amine substance, which has certain effects on the treatment of leukemia and aplastic anemia.
銆€銆€Chinese medicine believes that strawberries have the effect of removing fire, relieving heat and clearing heat. Spring people’s liver fire is often more vigorous, and eating strawberries can inhibit the effect.
In addition, strawberries are best eaten after meals because they contain a lot of pectin and cellulose, which can promote worms, help digestion, improve constipation, prevent hemorrhoids, and intestinal cancer.
銆€銆€It is difficult for strawberries to be cleaned, mainly because of its rough appearance and thin skin, which is broken when washed.
Therefore, many people simply eat water in order to save trouble.
In fact, strawberries are herbaceous plants, plants are relatively low, and the fruit is tender and juicy, which makes it vulnerable to pests and diseases.
Therefore, pesticides should be used frequently in the process of growing strawberries.
These pesticides, fertilizers, and germs can easily adhere to the rough surface of strawberries. If they are not cleaned, they may cause diarrhea and even pesticide poisoning.
銆€銆€To wash the strawberries, it is best to rinse them with tap water. The flowing water can prevent pesticides from penetrating into the fruits.
Do not eat the washed strawberries immediately. It is best to soak them in light salt water or rice water for 5 minutes.
Light salt water can kill harmful microbes on the surface of strawberries; rice water is alkaline, which can promote the degradation of acidic pesticides.
When washing strawberries, be careful not to remove the strawberry stalks. If the strawberries are soaked in water, the residual pesticide will enter the fruit with the water, causing more serious pollution.
In addition, do not soak the strawberries with detergents such as washing spirits. These substances are difficult to clean and easily remain in the fruit, causing secondary pollution.
