Benefits of Strawberries

Ever wondered why we are told to eat the rainbow? Well the short answer is that different fruits and vegetables contain different micronutrients (vitamins and minerals).

For this reason, if you follow a bland diet plan, you may become deficient in some of those micronutrients, which can affect other bodily functions down the line.

For example if you don't get in enough vitamin C, your body won't be able to naturally synthesize collagen. This essentially means you may start to develop joint issues, age faster, lose muscle, lose bone mineral density.

This goes for all the micronutrients that your body needs, but you'd get them from different food sources and they'd have their own specific role to play in your body. This is why it's important not to starve yourself and eat a variety of different foods.
