Strawberry Juice Benefits

When making a drink with fresh fruit, there are bound to be some health benefits. It is full of the good stuff, so there shouldn’t be any guilt in drinking homemade strawberry juice, especially if you leave out the added sugar. The strawberry juice benefits range from health to beauty.

Strawberries are packed with antioxidants and fiber. The fiber comes from strawberry pulp, so if you want a health boost in your strawberry juice, I recommend keeping the pulp. There are minerals such as iron, zinc, potassium and manganese that help increase bone health and lower blood pressure.

As for beauty, the antioxidants and vitamin E and C in strawberries can treat skin inflammation and help to reduce age spots and wrinkles. Plus, vitamin C is great for the immune system and eyesight. A phytochemical present in strawberries called Ellagic acid, helps to prevent collagen destruction.

Does Strawberry Juice Stain?

Does strawberry juice stain? Unfortunately, yes. Whether it is from the cut-up fruit or the finished drink, strawberry stains are difficult to wash off, especially when they don’t react well to soap. Here are some steps to wash out stubborn strawberry stains:

  • First, blot (don’t rub) the stain with a clean cloth or paper towel immediately.
  • Next, rinse any excess off with cool water (hot water can set some stains, so stick to cool water).
  • Mix 1 tbsp. of white vinegar and 2/3 cup of rubbing alcohol in a bowl.
  • Dip a cloth into the mixture and blot the stain until it is lifted.
  • Then throw it in the laundry using the hot water setting and detergent.
