Strawberries are considered very delicious and healthy when fresh, we all love them but their effect on blood pressure surprises all doctors and scientist. In recent studies by scientist and doctors it is discovered that eating even few strawberries can lower the blood pressure by amazing 50 % for 10 minutes because they contain very high dose of potassium.
Potassium is used for treating and preventing low potassium levels. It is also used to treat high blood pressure and prevent stroke. It helps to lower blood pressure by balancing out the negative effects of salt. Your kidneys help to control your blood pressure by controlling the amount of fluid stored in your body. The more fluid, the higher your blood pressure.
Potassium also lowers blood sugar, so that if, for example, blood levels of potassium get too high, insulin is released from the beta cells to help lower the levels. There is some indication that people who have metabolic syndrome or type 2 diabetes have a low level of potassium in their cells.
Because of the very very high dose of potassium in strawberries a hungry person who eats more than 40 grams of strawberries and then start moving like running, walking, driving or increase muscle or brain function can became unconscious unexpectedly.
Far from that that strawberries are not healthy, they are and it’s good to eat them but remember to never ever eat them when hungry and then drive. Eat them in the morning or before sleep.
