Some people think of strawberries as something perverted. After all, in many sex and sensual scenes in movies, we see people either eating strawberries or put them on their body.
Jokes and perverted fantasy aside, strawberries are extremely healthy fruits. They are loaded in vitamin C and vitamin K. but they also provide fiber, folic acid, potassium, and flavonoids to your body.
