We love indulging in red, juicy strawberries, but did you know that not only the fruits but their green leaves are also nutritional and beneficial for health?

Healthcare professional Dr Karan Rajan has shared on Instagram that “if you’re eating strawberries, eat the leaves too as the top part of a strawberry along with the leaves, known as a calyx, offers nutritional benefits as much as the berry itself.

Dr. Rajan explained that the leaves are rich in polyphenols, acting as antioxidants, and contain nearly as much vitamin C as the strawberries and are also packed with various other beneficial nutrients.
