8 Best skin benefits of strawberry

 

 

Did you know that the name ‘strawberry’ is a misnomer as it is not a berry at all? Well, neither did I. Strawberries are considered as an accessory fruit as their fleshy part is not comprised of the plant’s ovaries but of the receptacle that holds the ovaries.Strawberries are a multipurpose fruit. Strawberries are not only beautiful looking, but also nutritious. There are fewer calories and more vitamins. Vitamin C, B6 and Vitamin K are also there, along with folic acid, potassium and amino acids are also found in abundance.

When I was young, I used to love strawberries for their juiciness and their wonderful taste. I always thought them to be the best of fruits – of course, they are not called the Queen of fruits for no reason!
