Benefit of strawberries and antioxidants in it is already known and proven in vitro or in laboratory. For the first time, researchers from the Marche Polytechnic University and the University of Granada to prove in vivo or direct in humans.
In the experiment whose results appeared in the journal Food Chemistry, researchers involved 12 participants. Each was given an additional 500 grams of strawberry food every day, and blood samples taken on day 4, 8, 12, 16 and a month afterwards.
