The researchers reminded us that strawberries contain a high concentration of anthocyanin, an amino acid that reduces the level of bad cholesterol in the body.
Strawberries, because they are rich in fiber, help the body burn visceral fat in the abdomen, which is very dangerous for the body.
Visceral fat in the abdomen disrupts the balance and functioning of hormones, impairs the sensitivity of cells to insulin, and promotes blood clots, which leads to heart problems and sometimes early death. However, soluble fiber, according to researchers from Wake Forest Baptist Medical Center, slows down the process of digested food from the stomach to the intestines and thus helps to get rid of visceral fat.
“For every ten grams of soluble fiber per day, the amount of visceral fat decreases by 3.7% over a period of five years. On the other hand, an increase in moderate activity leads to a 7.4% reduction in visceral fat over the same period of time,” the scientists say.
The researchers also recalled that strawberries contain a high concentration of anthocyanin, an amino acid that lowers bad cholesterol and triglycerides, helping to control weight.
