Freeze Dried Bananas

100% natural, vegan and raw, gluten free, no added sugar or sulphur, no preservatives, GMO free

Bananas are a valuable snack for adults and children. They can be eaten solo as a fruit or as an ingredient in a breakfast smoothie, milkshake, yoghurt, cereals, fruit bowl etc. They taste great and are vitamin and nutritional bombs, especially in combination with freeze-dried fruits such as freeze-dried dragon fruit or freeze-dried wild blueberry.

Bananas have a high nutritional density. They are a perfect source of quick energy, which is the main fuel for the brain and muscles, providing excellent support during training or learning. They contain protein and calcium, the presence of which in fruit is hardly expected.

Bananas contain more potassium than tomatoes, which helps to stabilize blood pressure and support the cardiovascular system. They regulate the work of the digestive tract, increase the absorption of nutrients, and also play an important role in the prevention of civilization diseases. These fruits help with stomach ulcers and anaemia, support immunity, aid weight loss and soothe diarrhoea in children.

Why should we eat bananas?

Freeze dried banana is a perfect fruit!

A banana is a sweet and very filling fruit. Its delicate flesh is extremely gentle on the digestive tract. It rarely causes allergies and is, therefore, one of the first fruits to be added to babies’ meals.

Banana consumption strengthens the immune and nervous system, supports the body hydration and the loss of unnecessary kilograms during slimming diets. It also improves the oxygen level in the bloodstream.

Substances contained in bananas, such as carotenoids or phenolic compounds, effectively fight free radicals, thus preventing chronic diseases and delaying the ageing process. Thanks to the content of tryptophan, a building compound to produce the happiness hormone – serotonin, bananas can improve mood. They are especially helpful during states of anxiety and depression.

Healthy Future Banana

Rich source of potassium

Protection for the heart and bones

Bananas take care of the circulatory system – heart and blood vessels. They relieve tension in the veins and arteries. They contain large amounts of potassium, which accelerates the removal of sodium from the body, helps to normalize the level of blood pressure and has a positive effect on the prevention of atherosclerosis, heart attacks and stroke. It also helps all organs to be better oxygenated.

The high potassium content also means that bananas protect against osteoporosis by preventing the leaching of calcium particles from the bones.

Bananas and cholesterol

Scientists have proved that eating bananas can lower the level of harmful LDL cholesterol in the blood and increase its beneficial HDL fraction. All because of the pectin, a type of dietary fibre. In this way, bananas protect the blood vessels against the build-up of atherosclerotic plaque and indirectly prevent the occurrence of a heart attack or stroke.

The pectin contained in bananas also helps to remove toxins from the body and helps in the fight against diabetes because it improves glucose tolerance.

Body regeneration support

Bananas have a high nutritional density. This means that a small volume contains a relatively large dose of energy and nutrients (vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, enzymes, etc.).

For this reason, they are recommended for malnourished people and convalescents debilitated, e.g. those suffering from anorexia, people undergoing cancer treatment, or those with high fever, where the energy loss is significant, and there is also an aversion to food due to the ongoing illness and weakness.
In case of a temporary decline in physical and mental performance, a banana is also definitely a healthier choice than a chocolate bar.

Bananas and anaemia

Bananas help prevent and treat anaemia thanks to their high iron content, which plays a significant role in building red blood cells (the production of haemoglobin in the blood). If your anaemia was caused by a deficiency of iron (80% of all cases) or folate acid, having bananas containing these ingredients in your diet may help. The effect of iron is supported by the presence of vitamin C, copper and manganese, which increase the bioavailability of this element.

We pick only the finest, wholesome bananas and freeze-dry them, in order to preserve their original flavour and nutritional content.

Protection against cancer

Bananas protect against cancer, especially cancer of the kidneys and colon. In this case, the key action is demonstrated by resistant starch as well as the wealth of antioxidants (especially vitamin C and E) that destroy free radicals, which lead to cell damage and the formation of cancerous foci. In addition, ripe bananas contain Tumour Necrosis Factor – a substance that destroys cancer cells.

Brown spots on banana

Tumour Necrosis Factor

Bananas with brown spots have different properties than the less mature ones because they contain the Tumour Necrosis Factor. The greater number of discolourations on the skin indicates a high concentration of TNF, which has a positive effect on health. The substance fights cancer cells and can be treated as cancer prophylaxis.

Bananas with spots should also be consumed by physically active people because they reduce hunger faster and reduce the occurrence of muscle cramps. However, it should be remembered that ripe bananas have a higher glycaemic index which means people with diabetes should not reach for them.

Bananas and digestive system – stomach protection

Bananas have a positive effect on the digestive system. They are especially recommended for people suffering from gastric ulcers, heartburn and reflux because they have a very soft structure that does not irritate the stomach. They neutralize gastric acids, which partially relieves stomach pain, but also eliminate nagging heartburn.

Bananas increase the production of mucus that forms a protective layer in the stomach. Thus, they prevent the harmful effects of hydrochloric acid (and irritants from getting in with food) and thus preventing damage to the structure of the stomach. The substances contained in bananas also stimulate the growth of gastric mucosa cells, thus contributing to the reduction of existing ulcers and erosions.

Additionally, bananas contain the so-called protease inhibitors that contribute to the destruction of pathogenic bacteria, including Helicobacter pylori, which is probably responsible for the majority of peptic ulcer disease.

Bananas and digestive system

Bananas help eliminate and relieve the symptoms of undesirable digestive ailments. They neutralize discomfort and bring significant relief during conditions such as constipation, diarrhoea or nausea (especially in the case of pregnancy).

The pectin (soluble fibre fraction) contained in bananas is an ideal breeding ground for beneficial bacteria living in the intestines. Thanks to this, the fruit promotes the development of the bacterial flora necessary for the proper digestive processes.

Bananas also contain short-chain fatty acids, which protect the cells lining the digestive tract, which indirectly contributes to better absorption of nutrients from food.

Support in antibiotic therapy

The composition of bananas includes fructooligosaccharide (FOS), which is a natural prebiotic that supports the growth of beneficial bacteria in the large intestine.

This is especially important for people who have damaged intestinal flora, for example, because of antibiotic therapy. Its reconstruction is crucial for the regular functioning of the immune and digestive systems. It is therefore worth reaching for bananas during and a few weeks after antibiotic treatment.

Help with diarrhoea and constipation

Ripe banana fruit (the ones with mostly dark brown skin) can help with digestive problems. Thanks to the content of pectin and potassium, they are recommended (like freeze-dried wild blueberries) for the treatment of diarrhoea, also in young children.

Pectins bind water and absorb toxins. This affects the densification of the food content and the formation of more solid stool consistency and helps to get rid of dangerous compounds from the body.

During diarrhoea, the body is exposed to the loss of water and electrolytes, which can lead to dehydration. The electrolytes contained in bananas, including potassium, help to maintain proper hydration of the body.

Bananas are helpful for diarrhoea, but on the other hand, the fruit also prevents constipation. The fibre contained in the fruit supports the digestive tract and intestinal peristalsis, which makes it effective in preventing constipation.

Bananas relieve menstrual pain

Due to the high content of magnesium, bananas have a relaxing effect on the muscles. This has a direct impact on reducing the pain felt during menstruation.
Vitamin B6 is also supportive during this period, which not only alleviates the symptoms of PMS, it reduces the severity of pain felt, but it also helps to regulate the menstrual cycle.

Since vitamin B6 increases the absorption of magnesium from the gastrointestinal tract, the presence of both nutrients in bananas is especially valuable.

Bananas and mental health

Eating bananas is recommended for people struggling with low mood, anxiety and depression. These fruits help to improve mood and well-being, promote relaxation, reduce symptoms of stress, encouraging a pleasant, positive mental and physical state.

They contain tryptophan, an exogenous amino acid that is not produced by our body. This substance stimulates the secretion of melatonin and serotonin. The first of them is responsible for the regulation of the human circadian cycle and restful sleep.

Serotonin often called the happiness hormone, is in turn a hormone that supports the processes of association and memory and is also responsible for positive moods. It improves the mental condition by causing a feeling of pleasure or even euphoria.

Vitamin B6 and folic acid (which are also present in bananas), involved in the synthesis of serotonin, also contribute to lowering the concentration of homocysteine in the blood. The excess of this amino acid has many negative consequences for health, including disturbing the production of serotonin, which may lead to depression.

Bananas and stress

Bananas reduce stress and support a mental effort. They are rich in potassium, which helps not only lower blood pressure but also reduce stress levels and improve mental performance. This is because it regulates the levels of the stress hormone cortisol. With this in mind, it seems like a good idea to eat a banana before a stressful conference!

Bananas are also a source of magnesium known for its anti-stress properties and calming effect on the nervous system. For this reason, they especially support people with concentration problems, suffering from chronic stress, chronic fatigue, neurosis and insomnia.

These fruits are also unrivalled in the case of intellectual effort and in states of general fatigue and weakness. It is also worth remembering that bananas are a valuable source of B vitamins responsible for the good condition of the nervous system.

Bananas and immunity

Eating bananas supports the immune system, speeds recovery, and replenishes vitamins and minerals lost during illness. Vitamin C and vitamin E play an exceptional role in this respect. They participate, among other things, in combating the excess of free radicals that weaken the immune system.

The body’s defence mechanisms are also stimulated by vitamin B6. It is involved in the production of antibodies and red blood cells. The selenium, zinc, copper and magnesium contained in bananas also positively influence the immune system.

Bananas and osteoporosis

Prevention and treatment of osteoporosis

Bananas contain several nutrients for healthy and strong bones. The most important are:

  • calcium (the basic building block of bones and teeth);
  • vitamin C (conditioning the synthesis of collagen, which is the main building block of connective tissue);
  • magnesium (facilitates the proper absorption of calcium by bones and activates many enzymes involved in their construction);
  • potassium (reduces the excretion of calcium in the urine);
  • manganese (supports the proper formation of connective tissue);
  • zinc and copper (involved in bone mineralization).

Bananas and weight-loss

Bananas are controversial fruits, but contrary to popular belief, they are not fattening. They contain healthy calories and, if eaten in moderation, can help reduce body weight. These fruits are sweet and filling, so they are a good replacement for calorie snacks and should quench your craving for sweets. In situations of hunger or craving for something sweet, they are definitely a better choice than bars or candies.

Tryptophan contained in bananas is involved in the regulation of metabolism, reducing appetite. Digestion is improved by vitamin B6 and manganese, which are involved in the metabolism of carbohydrates, lipids and proteins. These fruits also speed up metabolism because they contain chromium, a mineral that makes you burn more calories and have a lower craving for sweets.

In addition, the high content of fibre that absorbs water and swells in the stomach, combined with starch, induces a feeling of satiety and satisfies hunger for a longer period of time. It is worth eating bananas as part of your breakfast or mid-morning snack. It is only important not to combine bananas with protein or fat in one meal – you can always combine it with other fruits or raw honey.

An interesting option can be a smoothie based on freeze-dried banana powder with the addition of freeze-dried raspberries powder, containing raspberry ketones, which also support the reduction of body fat.

Freeze Dried Banana

Bananas stabilize blood glucose levels

Bananas have an average glycaemic index and load, which means they raise your blood sugar levels moderately. Thanks to this, you get a quick boost of energy without being hungry for a minimum of 2 hours. It’s a great snack on the go when you don’t have time for a bigger meal.

The spikes in blood sugar characteristic of simple carbohydrates are counteracted by the fibre present in bananas. It slows down the digestion of food and the absorption of sugars, thus stabilizing the blood glucose level. This prevents the feeling of hunger from reappearing quickly.

Support for athletes

Bananas are an excellent source of easily digestible energy. Due to the high content of dietary fibre, potassium and high energy value, it is recommended to eat bananas for physically active people. Those who are actively involved in sports can reach for these fruits immediately after or before exercise to compensate for energy losses and normalize blood sugar levels.

Bananas eaten right after training provide sugars, which are an energy boost for muscles, as well as antioxidants that neutralize free radicals produced during intense exercises. It facilitates the regeneration of the body and supports the treatment of injuries and contusions.

In addition, bananas make your training more effective. You may not be aware that your body needs vitamin C to be more efficient during exercises. This vitamin makes your muscles and tendons stronger.

Bananas and pregnancy

Pregnant women struggling with morning sickness can reach for a banana before getting out of bed, which will alleviate troublesome ailments and provide iron – an element often deficient in pregnancy and important in blood-forming processes and preventing anaemia.

In addition, bananas have the properties of neutralizing excess stomach acid, so they can provide relief from heartburn – a troublesome ailment that many pregnant women complain about.

Bananas also contain folic acid, which helps to minimize the risk of certain birth defects to the foetus, especially during the first trimester of pregnancy. Unfortunately, many pregnancies are unplanned and often women in the critical period for developing malformations do not realize that they will soon become mothers. For this reason, it is recommended that an adequate amount of folic acid be present in the diet of women of reproductive age who have an active sex life.

Bananas and blood pressure

Eating bananas on a regular basis protects your heart and circulatory system. Bananas are one of the leading products with the highest content of blood pressure-lowering potassium. Even the famous tomatoes have much less of it. In addition, bananas contain little sodium, a low level of which is also important in high blood pressure treatment.

Due to the opposite effect of potassium and sodium – potassium lowers blood pressure and sodium raises it – their balance is important for the proper functioning of the entire body. Research suggests that the regular consumption of two bananas a day can lower blood pressure by 10%.

Bananas and HIV

Bananas can protect against HIV infection. It turns out that these fruits contain BanLec, a type of lectin that is a plant protein that blocks the molecules of the gp120 protein responsible for the development of this infection. In doing so, bananas inhibit the multiplication of the virus, like the medical drugs used to treat HIV.

Bananas also contain large amounts of selenium, an element that stimulates the immune system to produce antibodies. Vitamin C and vitamin E are also important, i.e. substances supporting the wellbeing of the body, which are very valuable to people with immune system diseases.

Bananas rejuvenate

Vitamins C, A and E found in bananas, also known as vitamins of youth, are strong antioxidants that protect the skin against the harmful effects of free radicals accelerating its ageing. Selenium, zinc and copper contained in bananas also have antioxidant properties.

In addition, vitamin C, apart from acting as an antioxidant, also participates in the production and regeneration of collagen responsible for skin elasticity. By supporting its production, which decreases with age, vitamin C not only prevents the formation of new wrinkles but also reduces existing ones.

Banana shake - good for hangovers

If we suffer from an extremely severe hangover, a banana can quickly improve our condition thanks to its properties. Preparing a quick banana smoothie with natural yoghurt and honey does not take much time, and it will help our stomach return to its normal working mode.

Raspberry is a fruit with a high content of nutrients and biologically active compounds. This fruit plays a significant role in health prophylaxis supporting convalescence and protecting cells against free radicals that contribute to DNA damage.

Raspberries are low-calorie fruits, rich in fibre, vitamins, minerals, acids and antioxidants. They can protect against diabetes, specific types of cancer, obesity, arthritis, cardiovascular disease, and other conditions, and may even delay the aging process.

It is recommended to use raspberries to strengthen immunity and the entire body, so it is worth making them a permanent part of our diet. The freeze-drying process allows to preserve all the nutritional values of the fruit, along with their taste and smell so you can eat them all year round.

Why should we eat raspberries?

Freeze dried raspberry is a very tasty fruit!

Raspberries are one of the oldest fruits and have been used for millennia for both nutritional and medicinal purposes. Hippocrates already recommended them as a diaphoretic. One of the first written records of raspberries dates back to 300 BC.

Many references of the health-promoting properties of raspberries can be found in folk medicine – they were attributed, among others, with anti-inflammatory and antipyretic properties. Raspberries were also considered a medicine for anaemia. In modern herbalism and medicine, almost every part of the raspberry is used, from the branches, through leaves, to the juicy fruit.

They contain valuable vitamins and minerals such as natural antioxidants – vitamins C and E, B vitamins (including folic acid), potassium, calcium, magnesium and iron. Moreover, they also contain carotenoids, essential oils, pectins, tannins, organic acids, various groups of antioxidants, e.g. ellagic acid, flavonoids, anthocyanins.

Raspberries - health properties

These amazing fruits are:

  • keto and diabetic friendly (having a low glycaemic index and a positive effect on regulating blood sugar levels);
  • a source of vitamins: C, A, E, K, B1, B2, B3 (PP), B9, B9;
  • a source of minerals: calcium, iron, magnesium, phosphorus, potassium, sodium, zinc, selenium, copper;
  • a rich source of antioxidant compounds that help reduce molecular damage and thus delay the aging process of the body.

Raspberries also have:

  • antiviral and antibacterial properties;
  • antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties (they are a rich source of vitamin C, ellagic acid and anthocyanins);
  • an anti-cancer effect (they contain substances that slow down the spread of cancer and contribute to the death of cancer cells).

Freeze-dried raspberries nutritional values

These nutrient-dense fruits:

  • lower blood pressure, calming effect, strengthen the heart and protect against cardiovascular diseases (e.g. atherosclerosis);
  • regulate the digestive tract (they contain fibre, pectins, mucilaginous substances, accelerate the digestion of food, prevent constipation and bloating, stimulate the cleansing of the body from toxins, support the liver by choleretic effect);
  • support weight loss: they are low in calories and filling, they are a rich source of fibre and raspberry ketones, improve metabolic processes, accelerate fat burning and cleanse the body of toxins;
  • effectively strengthen the immune system and the entire body;
  • support the treatment of colds and infections thanks to the high content of vitamin C and salicylic acid (they warm the body, increase sweating and reduce fever);
  • expectorate and dilute the secretions accumulating in the sinuses and bronchi;
  • regulate the water and electrolyte balance;
  • improve the composition of the intestinal microflora – important in prevention of obesity and some diet-related chronic diseases;
  • support the treatment of anaemia;
  • protect against free radicals, lowering the level of oxidative stress that increases the risk of cancer, diabetes, heart disease and other chronic diseases;
  • play a significant role in the MIND diet, recommended in the prevention of neurodegenerative diseases, e.g. Alzheimer‘s disease;
  • contain organic acids (including citric, malic, salicylic – the vegetable equivalent of aspirin), over 100 different essential oils, pectins (water-soluble fibre), polyphenols (anthocyanins).

The kingdom of vitamin C

An average portion of raspberries covers more than half of the body’s daily need for vitamin C. Due to its antioxidant and immune system stimulating properties, vitamin C is often recommended as a prophylactic agent, as well as supporting the treatment of many diseases, including the prevention of specific types of cancer and cardiovascular diseases, macular degeneration, cataracts and colds.

Raspberries and anti-cancer properties

The high level of various types of antioxidants contained in raspberries have a protective effect against the development of specific types of cancer (both benign and malignant). These components inhibit the growth / multiplication of cancer cells and contribute to the death of cancer cells. The positive effects of raspberries can be seen in stomach, colon, breast, liver and lung cancer.

The anti-cancer properties are mainly due to ellagic acid (belonging to the group of polyphenols) contained in raspberries. This compound also has antiviral and anti-inflammatory properties, which explains the use of raspberries in the treatment of colds and flu.

Healthy Future Raspberry

Anti-aging properties

The aging process is caused, among other factors, by free radicals that damage cell structures. Raspberries are a rich source of antioxidant compounds that can help reduce molecular damage and thus delay the aging process.

One of the main antioxidants of raspberry fruit, which is also a vitamin, is ascorbic acid, i.e. vitamin C. It is responsible, among others, for the youthful appearance of the skin. It supports the production of collagen, which decreases with age, which makes the skin more flaccid. Vitamin C also stimulates the regeneration of skin damaged by UV radiation.

Raspberry ketones

Raspberries and losing weight

Raspberries support weight loss on several levels:

  1. Raspberries are a very good source of dietary fibre.
    A regime rich in dietary fibre increases the feeling of fullness, which is very important in the process of weight reduction. In addition, fibre supports the digestive system by a beneficial effect on intestinal peristalsis. Moreover, fibre prevents cardiovascular diseases and cancer.
  2. Raspberries are low in calories.
    Low caloric value combined with high fibre content means that after eating raspberries, we feel full. The natural sweetness of raspberries will help to satisfy the desire for “something sweet”.
  3. Raspberries contain raspberry ketones.
    Raspberry ketones play a significant role in the treatment of obesity by reducing the weight of fat cells, breaking down cholesterol and improving the body’s metabolism. They are a natural substance that gives raspberries their characteristic scent. Raspberry ketones increase the breakdown of fats due to the greater sensitisation of cells to the norepinephrine hormone which stimulates metabolism.
    Raspberry ketones can also be found in supporting weight loss dietary supplements. The ketones contained in supplements, however, come from laboratory synthesis. This is due to the fact that as much as 41 kg of raw raspberries are needed to produce just a single dose of raspberry ketones! The ketones contained in the whole raspberry fruit show a much better effect than those derived from synthetic supplements. Whole raspberry fruit is an excellent low-calorie variation on a reduction diet!
  4. Raspberries have a positive effect on the intestinal microflora.
    Raspberries reduce Firmicutes bacteria and stimulate the growth of Bacteroidetes bacteria, which prevents the development of obesity and some diet-related chronic diseases.
  5. Raspberries improve metabolism and detoxification
    Raspberries are extremely valuable due to the content of fibre, pectin and mucilaginous substances that have a positive effect on the digestive process and detoxification.
  6. Raspberries are helpful after exercise.
    According to specialists, raspberries are also an ideal snack after training. This effect is due to the content of anti-inflammatory and antioxidant compounds in raspberries, which protect the muscles and accelerate their regeneration.
  7. Raspberries contain ample vitamins and minerals.
    Thanks to raspberries, you will provide your body with a supply of many ingredients necessary for regular functioning. The high dietary fibre, low caloric and sugar content, as well as ample vitamins and minerals are a recipe for the perfect product recommended for weight loss.

Raspberries and allergy

Raspberries, like strawberries, can cause allergic reactions. This is due to the salicylates contained in the fruit. Children suffer from allergic reactions to raspberries more often than adults. The allergy is most often manifested by redness, rash and itching – most often on the face, although it can also appear all over the body. After prolonged symptoms, a dry cough may appear.

Diabetic friendly fruit

Raspberries are tannins and fibre-rich fruits, contain little amount of carbohydrates and have a low glycaemic index (GI). Therefore, they are fruits that are safe for diabetics and people leaving on a keto diet. After their consumption, rapid fluctuations in blood sugar levels are not indicated. Raspberries can also lower blood sugar (especially after starchy meals) and make tissues more sensitive to insulin. This is made possible, among other factors, by the anthocyanins contained in raspberries. This fact is especially important for people with insulin resistance and those with already developed diabetes.

Cold and flu support

Raspberries are considered natural aspirin. These fruits have anti-inflammatory, antipyretic, antibacterial and antiviral properties. They are perfect for colds and infections. This is due to, among other factors, a very high content of easily absorbed vitamin C and salicylic acid. These substances protect against becoming ill. If we do become unwell, the period of illness is significantly reduced.

Raspberries work diaphoretic and lower fever

The fruit has a diaphoretic effect, lowering the body temperature, which is especially important in high fever (especially in viral and bacterial infections). The infusion of freeze-dried raspberries causes profuse sweat secretion, 30-60 minutes after being taken. In addition, raspberries have antibacterial and anti-inflammatory properties.

Raspberry infusion is also useful in the case of weakened immunity, runny nose and cough. In this case, raspberries will have a gentle expectorant effect and dilute the secretion that accumulates in the sinus and bronchi. For this reason, raspberries are also used to treat and prevent sinus infections.
To support immunity, it is good to drink an infusion of freeze-dried raspberries once a day throughout the year. To prepare, you need two tablespoons of raspberries – just pour a glass of hot water and leave it covered for about 5-10 minutes.

Circulatory system assistance

Raspberry lowers blood pressure, this is why it is recommended for hypertension and other cardiovascular diseases. Consuming raspberries can have a beneficial effect on the endothelium of blood vessels, thus improving cardiovascular health. According to scientists, this is due to polyphenols such as anthocyanins in these fruits. They improve endothelial function 2 to 24 hours after eating the fruit. People with an increased risk of developing cardiovascular diseases are recommended to include raspberries in their daily diet.

You can reach for these seasonal fruits any time you want!

We pick only the finest, wholesome raspberries and freeze-dry them, in order to preserve their original flavour and nutritional content.

Keto friendly

Strong anti-inflammatory effect - a rescue for joints

Many active substances contained in raspberries have anti-inflammatory properties. The anti-inflammatory substances help relieve the symptoms of arthritis. Raspberries can help to reduce swelling and the degree of degeneration of joints associated with the ongoing inflammation. In addition, due to the rich source of well-absorbed vitamin C, they are an important component supporting the functions and regeneration of connective tissue.

High antioxidants concentration - repair of DNA structures

Raspberries contain a lot of substances called antioxidants. These include polyphenols (phenolic acids, flavonoids, flavonols, anthocyanins), vitamins A and C, tocopherols, carotenoids, organic acids, calcium and selenium. Their main job is to inhibit the formation and neutralise free oxygen radicals, which can contribute to the damage of the body’s tissues, the development of civilization diseases and accelerate the aging process.

The antioxidants contained in raspberries also repair damage caused by free radicals – they help repair damage to DNA structures caused by the influence of free radicals. The ability of self-regulation and effective repair of errors in DNA prevents the multiplication of defective cells, which are precursors of cancerous tumours. Here, a huge role is played by ellagic acid, belonging to phenolic acids, characterised by a strong protective effect – anticancer and antiviral.

Thanks to such a composition of antioxidants, raspberries have anti-inflammatory, antimicrobial (including antiviral) and anticancer properties.

Why should we eat strawberries?

Freeze dried strawberry is an amazing fruit!

It is thought, strawberries were first cultivated as food in France around 1300. However, even the ancient Romans appreciated strawberries for their ornamental value. They were also considered an aphrodisiac. Strawberries are the perfect addition to champagne when celebrating special moments!

They support the daily functioning of the body, protecting against civilization diseases (including cancer and cardiovascular system diseases). They improve skin condition, support weight loss and are diabetic-friendly. Eating strawberries protects the gastric mucosa from alcohol-induced damage, and the quercetin they contain is a natural anti-inflammatory agent.

  • help in iron absorption (especially recommended for vegetarians and vegans);

  • improve appetite and digestion, cleanse the intestines of lingering debris and support beneficial bacterial flora;

  • protect against heart and circulatory system diseases (lower blood pressure, LDL cholesterol and triglycerides, prevent blood clots);

  • have a positive effect on the skin (discoloration, acne), hair and nails;

  • prevent eye diseases and strengthen eyesight (dry eye, degeneration of the optic nerve and macula);

  • improve the immune system and strengthen the entire body;

Excellent source of vitamin C

Strawberries are rich in vitamin C – they contain the most vitamin C of all berries, even more than lemon.

Vitamin C properties:

  • is involved in collagen production (a protein necessary for the development and regeneration of skin, bones, teeth, connective tissue and gums);
  • supports the immune system;
  • has a soothing effect and shortens the duration of upper respiratory tract infections;
  • protects the body against the harmful effects of free radicals, thus reducing the risk of cancer;
  • reduces the risk of blindness by the elderly;
  • supports the absorption of iron (ideal for vegetarians and vegans).

Strawberries and diabetes

The substances contained in strawberries activate certain proteins that inhibit the increase in blood sugar levels. In addition, strawberries have a low glycaemic index and contain fructose metabolized without insulin, so they can also be enjoyed by those living with diabetes. Strawberries also contain ellagic acid, which, along with antioxidants, helps slow down the digestion of starchy foods.

strawberries and anticancer properties

In addition to ample amount of vitamin C, strawberries are rich in ellagic acid. This compound is a strong antioxidant, strengthens the immune system, inhibits cell mutation, preventing the formation of cancer cells, and causes the death of already formed ones (apoptosis). Ellagic acid counteracts carcinogens, both synthetic and naturally occurring in food, thus preventing the formation of new cancer cells.

Strawberries can neutralize the carcinogenic effects of nitrosamines, which are contained in thermally processed foods. Moreover, the dietary fibre contained in strawberries supports intestinal peristalsis, which prevents the development of colon cancer.

Many studies show that strawberries may help prevent several types of cancer thanks to their ability to soothe oxidative stress (caused by excess oxygen free radicals) and inflammation. Strawberries can inhibit the formation of tumours in oral cancer and the growth of liver cancer and mammary gland cancer.

Strawberries and allergy

Strawberries are classified as a potential allergen due to their salicylate content. Allergy to strawberries particularly affects children. The most common symptoms are urticaria, sometimes with diarrhoea. Anaphylactic shock occurs much less frequently. Allergic reactions most often occur after consuming fresh strawberries. After heat treatment, e.g. cooking or baking, the allergens in strawberries are less potent.

Small fruit seeds can also irritate the intestinal mucosa – they are not recommended for people with inflammatory ailments of the intestine (e.g. ulcerative colitis). In turn, they will be beneficial for those prone to constipation.

It is also not advisable to eat fresh strawberries out of season, as they may contain increased amounts of fertilizers and pesticides. This, in turn, may contribute to the intensification of possible allergic reactions. Thanks to freeze-dried strawberries, you can enjoy these fruits all year round!

Strawberries slow down the aging process of the brain

Strawberry polyphenols act as anti-inflammatory compounds, protect against brain-wasting diseases (such as dementia or Alzheimer), and improve memory, ability to concentrate and learn. In addition, the compounds contained in strawberries increase blood flow to the brain and ensure efficient removal of toxic substances from the brain, which is extremely important in maintaining proper intellectual performance.

Strawberries and weight loss support

Strawberries eaten without fattening additives support weight loss. They are a low-calorie fruit, and the pectin contained in them (which can also be found in blueberries and raspberries) stimulate the intestines and help release fat cells from the tissue. Organic acids contained in these fruits regulate digestion, accelerate metabolism and cleanse the body of accumulated toxins.

The enzymes in strawberries quickly prepare the stomach to digest food. The enzyme bromelain breaks down dietary protein and speeds up the metabolism of fats and carbohydrates. Additionally, strawberries are choleretic (stimulate the liver and gall bladder), diuretic (support kidney function), which also contributes to weight loss.

Strawberries and body cleansing

Strawberries have disinfecting and bactericidal properties, which means that they cleanse our body of toxic compounds of metabolism. The content of pectin and organic acids accelerates the intestines and regulates the digestive processes. In addition, strawberries cleanse the intestines of food residues, improving metabolism, the natural bacterial flora, and protecting against colon cancer.

Heart and circulatory system protection

Strawberries activate a certain type of protein that protects against heart and circulatory system diseases (such as atherosclerosis, stroke, thrombosis or heart attack). They contain substances that help to lower blood pressure, levels of LDL cholesterol and triglycerides, and counteract the build-up of atherosclerotic plaque (platelet aggregation).

Regular consumption of strawberries can lower the risk of a heart attack in middle-aged women by almost 32%. In addition, they improve the function of the vascular endothelium, dilate blood vessels and reduce the tendency to venous thrombosis.
