Most people think of blueberries or tea when antioxidants come to mind. However, strawberries may be the next front runner when considering the similar benefits that they bring to the table, according to Endocrine Web.
Dietary supplements, such as Ultimate Reds from Dr. Newton’s Naturals, can provide individuals with the antioxidants they need on a daily basis. In combination with strawberries, researchers say people may be able to boost their intake by large amounts.
Strawberries include a variety of antioxidant that may prevent type 1 diabetes, according to a new study conducted by researchers from the Salk Institute. A medication including this nutrient from strawberries may also dramatically improve the quality of life for diabetics.
“This manuscript describes for the first time a drug that prevents both kidney and brain complications in a type 1 diabetes mouse model,” David Schubert, leader of the study, told the news source. “Moreover, it demonstrates the probable molecular basis of how the therapeutic is working.”
Approximately 8.3 percent of the population in the U.S. is living with diabetes, according to the American Diabetes Association.
