Nutrition Tips for Reducing Inflammation

A study from the Harvard School of Public Health showed that women who eat sixteen or more strawberries per week are 14% less likely to have elevated levels of C-Reactive protein (CRP), a key marker of inflammation in the body.

Strawberries are also an excellent source of Vitamin C, fiber, Potassium, Lutein and Folic acid.

My colleague and friend, Dr. Susan Summerton, an Optometrist in Naples, made reference to this benefit on her Facebook page today.

I thought it was a timely post, because Sunday I bought several baskets of fresh grown organic strawberries at a local Naples farmer’s market (Pine Ridge and Airport Road) and wanted to share this nutritional pearl.
