It's not just the fruit of the plant that has benefits. Many people are not aware that the leaves of fruits and veggies have a history of medicinal use as well. Not only do foods contain redundantly sophisticated phytochemicals that are created in accordance with the genetics of their DNA ( Deoxyribonucleic Acid), but other parts of the plants do as well. These phytochemicals differ from
typical vitamins, minerals, and nutrients listed on nutrition labels. I have to ask, why are these chemicals being left out? One of the main goals of this website is to inform the mainstream of such miracles.
Phytochemicals are made by plants, and have been studied by brilliant researchers from prestigious educational institutions around the globe. Below is only a small list of some of these miraculous collaborations of atoms, which make up these majestic molecules produced by strawberry plants. They include: Flavonoids, such as anthocyanins, flavanols, phenolic acids, hydroxybenzoic acid, hydroxycinnamic acid, fisetin, ellagic acid, and ellagitannins.
Do you see my point? These chemicals are not mentioned, nor are their potential health benefits. Strawberry leaves have been used by alternative healers in infusions, teas, and tinctures. The nutrients and phytochemicals can be extracted using these various methods. They are considered to promote overall health and even digestive function.
