Why a hand­ful of STRAW­BER­RIES can help your gut

The Sunday Telegraph (Sydney) - Body and Soul - - NEWS -

Eat­ing about 150g (less than 1 cup) a day of these de­li­cious ber­ries can sig­nif­i­cantly re­duce in­flam­ma­tion in your colon and boost growth of healthy gut bac­te­ria, ac­cord­ing to a re­cent study by the Amer­i­can Chem­i­cal So­ci­ety. This can help to ease symp­toms such as se­vere di­ar­rhoea and re­duce the need for med­i­ca­tion and surgery. More re­search is needed to con­firm the find­ings, but since straw­berry sea­son is in full swing, it’s worth adding them to your shop­ping list.
