Do strawberries reduce foot pain and prevent sore feet?

Do strawberries reduce foot pain and prevent sore feet?


Not only are they extremely tasty, they also have powerful pain-reducing properties.

A perfect remedy for sore feet or after a long day in stilettos!

Ounce for ounce, strawberries are slightly higher in vitamin C — and lower in calories — than oranges.

Crazy, right?

And studies suggest that vitamin C may help people experience less pain after breaking a bone or having orthopedic surgery. Similar research indicates vitamin C may hinder arthritis-inducing cartilage loss and the formation of bone lesions in the joints.

Other research revealed 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.

Yet another study concluded that regular strawberry consumption reduced the pain levels of knee osteoarthritis.

Scientists suspect it’s anthocyanin, along with other pain-fighting phytochemicals, that give strawberries their anti-inflammatory and antioxidant health benefits.

If you eat just five large strawberries a day, you can benefit from less inflammation and joint pain.

Amazing, huh?

p.s. The Environmental Working Group (EWG) put together a list of foods that are most likely to be contaminated by pesticides, and strawberries top the list. The EWG recommends consuming organic or home-grown strawberries.
