The strawberry (Fragaria X ananassa, Duch.) represents a relevant source of micronutrients, such as minerals, vitamin C, folate and phenolic substances, most of which are natural antioxidants and contribute to the high nutritional quality of the fruit. All these compounds are essential for health and, in particular, strawberry phenolics are best known for their antioxidant and anti-inflammatory action, and possess directly and indirectly antimicrobial, anti-allergy and anti-hypertensive… Expand

TLDR
Current information about the potential mechanisms involved in the effects elicited by strawberry polyphenols on human health are reviewed, devoting special attention to the latest findings. Expand
Strawberry as a health promoter: an evidence based review.
TLDR
The molecular mechanisms proposed to explain the health effects of polyphenols against the most common diseases related to oxidative stress driven pathologies, such as cancer, cardiovascular diseases, type II diabetes, obesity and neurodegenerative diseases, and inflammation are proposed. Expand
Promising Health Benefits of the Strawberry: A Focus on Clinical Studies.
TLDR
The bioavailability and metabolism of major strawberry phytochemicals as well as their actions in combating many pathologies, including cancer, metabolic syndrome, cardiovascular disease, obesity, diabetes, neurodegeneration, along with microbial pathogenesis have been reviewed, with a particular attention to human studies. Expand
The genetic aspects of berries: from field to health.
TLDR
This work reviews, on the basis of the in vitro and in vivo evidence, the main berries' phytochemical compounds and their possible mechanisms of action on pathways involved in several type of diseases, with particular attention to cancer, inflammation, neurodegeneration, diabetes and cardiovascular diseases. Expand
progress on polyphenolic phytochemicals of strawberry fruits
Strawberry, which is one of the most widely cultivated fruits in the world, has great nutritional and economic value. Strawberry is rich in vitamins, minerals, dietary fiber and other traditionalExpand
Screening of strawberry juice for role in fecal evacuation
TLDR
The Study indicated that strawberry juice can relieve constipation, but the quantity should be monitored increased consumption can lead to diarrhea. Expand

Role of dietary antioxidants against oxidative stress
TLDR
The results obtained in the present work confirm the potential health benefit of strawberry in vivo against oxidative stress, also in physiological conditions characterized by a higher level of oxidative stress produced by aging. Expand
Strawberry and Achenes Hydroalcoholic Extracts and Their Digested Fractions Efficiently Counteract the AAPH-Induced Oxidative Damage in HepG2 Cells
TLDR
This work evaluated the protective effects against oxidative damage of nondigested and digested extracts from strawberry fruit and achenes in human hepatocellular carcinoma (HepG2) cells and demonstrated that all the evaluated fractions were able to counteract the AAPH-induced damage, suggesting that the achene also present biological activity.

Berries: emerging impact on cardiovascular health.
TLDR
Data support the recommendation of berries as an essential fruit group in a heart-healthy diet and underlying mechanisms are believed to include upregulation of endothelial nitric oxide synthase, decreased activities of carbohydrate digestive enzymes, decreased oxidative stress, and inhibition of inflammatory gene expression and foam cell formation.

Evaluation of antiproliferative, anti-type 2 diabetes, and antihypertension potentials of ellagitannins from strawberries (Fragaria × ananassa Duch.) using in vitro models.
TLDR
The results suggested that the ellagitannins and ellagic acid have good potential for the management of hyperglycemia and hypertension linked to type 2 diabetes and further studies with animal and human models are needed to advance the in vitro assay-based biochemical rationale from this study.

TLDR
Until the absorption and metabolic fate of anthocyanins in vivo is unravelled, it would be unwise to conclude that a high consumption of them will reduce the risk of chronic diseases. Expand
