I would have never thought because of the high sugar content but then again moderation is key.
Love that sight.

This might be true. Loving strawberries as i do would make it no problem for me. But I've tried an experiment... All fruits whether they are high sugar or not are consumed before 3 pm. My FBS has been lower. After 3 pm it's only a low carb and a protein. Works for me.

"Scientists at the University of Warwick have identified a potential preventive effect of strawberries on Type 2 Diabetes risk. Although strawberries have previously been identified as effective at battling high cholesterol and post-meal blood glucose levels, professor Paul Thornalley's research has now demonstrated that strawberry extract actually stimulates the protein "Nrf2" in our bodies, which activates antioxidant activity and decreases blood lipids.
Eating strawberries or strawberry extract may offer a simple, natural solution to improving cardiovascular health. Now that researchers know how strawberries stimulate this protective effect, they can focus on determining how much and which form of strawberries will work best to fight cardiovascular disease and diabetes.
