Strawberries are a good source of vitamin C. Vitamin C is an essential vitamin that helps build our immune system and helps protect us against colds and flus, but it helps the bones to build collagen. In one cup of strawberries, you’ll reap over 50 percent of your daily allowance of Vitamin C.

Manganese is also found in strawberries. Manganese is a compound that helps you process all of your key nutrients from blood sugars, to fatty acids. Manganese helps in the processing of thiamin and biotin, both water soluble vitamins. You’ll get about 20 percent of your daily allowance of your needed manganese in one serving of strawberries!
