Research has also shown that women who ate 16 or more strawberries a week had lower C-reactive protein (CRP), a measure of body-wide inflammation linked to arthritis flares and heart disease. An article in the British Journal of Nutrition concludes that “Dietary strawberry powder reduced risk factors for CVD, stroke, and diabetes in obese volunteers, suggesting a potential role for strawberries as a dietary means to decrease obesity-related disease.” The same journal has a lot of articles on dark chocolate benefits over inflammation, obesity and cardiovascular health.

Strawberries supply carbohydrates to your body. In case you have diabetes, then you must pay careful attention to how many and what sort of carbs you consume. Carbs convert to sugar with the support of a unique hormone called insulin. Glucose is the body's primary energy supply, but people with diabetes have difficulty with their insulin and may have an excessive amount of glucose circulating in the body. By eating too many carbs, you might be consuming more sugar than a diabetic body can handle. This action is the principal concern of diabetics with eating fruit such as berries. But, carbs are an essential nutrient, and a half-cup of strawberries provides just about 6 g of carbohydrates. You merely must account for the carbohydrates of strawberries on your total carb intake for the day. Additionally, berries score a 40 on the glycemic index, a measure of how fast carbs act in your blood glucose and insulin as you digest them. Any score lower than 55 is considered "low," meaning that the food is gradually absorbed and better for a diabetic diet.
