Strawberries: Endangered Tortoises Want Them and So Should You

In today’s world, there are a lot of foods that you can eat, and unfortunately, the vast majority of those foods are not really what would be considered “healthy” or good for living a holistic, healthy lifestyle all around.

Fortunately, however, we have animals to be our guides in terms of what is good for us and what is not. Don’t believe it? Just consider the fact that ants are known to go around and bypass artificial sugars. And, if that’s not enough for you, consider the cute video recently broadcast by Buzzfeed.

In the video, you will find an absolutely adorable little endangered tortoise reaching desperately to nibble at a strawberry- a simple, sweet, all natural strawberry, which, you guessed it, is good for holistic health!

The health benefits of strawberries, as the tortoise in the video seems to know,are great. To start off with, they’re a killer addition to your plate if you’re trying to lose extra weight, particularly around your midsection. Strawberries contain something known as anthocyanins, which can help the body to burn stored fat, enabling eaters to look and feel their very best!

They are also known for promoting positive eye health. In fact, some studies reveal that eating a serving or more of strawberries per day can actually lower your risk of vision loss and/or macular degeneration. So, move over carrots (which are also eye-friendly), strawberries are just as good (and even sweeter!) at promoting eye health.

These are just a few of many benefits of strawberries, which is why they are definitely worth adding to your diet, just like the cute little tortoise in the even cuter video tried to do!
