Beside rich in essential nutrients such as vitamins A, C, and B, the research shows strawberries potentially be protective skin from the sun.
Researchers from Spain and Italy found that skin cells are given extracts of strawberry will be protected from the damage of UV A. The protective effect comes from anthocyanins that give the red color on the fruit's little sour. Previous research has also linked anthocyanin with a reduced risk of diabetes.
"The content of anthocyanins have an important inflammatory effect, antioxidant and antitumor. In addition, the content of it also has the ability to modulate the enzyme," said Sara Tulipani from the University of Barcelona.
Even so researchers have not found a direct link between anthocyanin with protection against ultraviolet rays. According Tulipani, they are essentially new research carried out in the dermis and epidermis layers of the human skin, ie the skin cell cultures.
While awaiting the results of subsequent research, do not hesitate to eat strawberries. some research suggests the fruit is beneficial for health and beauty.
