Strawberries in general, are packed with detoxifying, diuretic and antioxidant properties, which make them the perfect addition to a detox drink. They also pack in soluble fiber which helps balance sugar levels, and fight constipation too.
What’s more, strawberries are an excellent source of important minerals like vitamin K, A, C and E, and other nutrients like folic acid and iron. When teamed up with water and lemon juice, they give your body a nice boost of the ‘good things’ and flush out all the ‘bad stuff.’
