Mention the word Strawberries & Cream and the name that usually comes to mind is Wimbledon. Every year during this Grand Slam tournament it is estimated that 28,000 kg of Strawberries will be consumed with over 7,000 litres of fresh cream.
Here are some other reasons why you should love Strawberries.
•They are known to clean and rid the blood of harmful toxins.
•They contain vitamin B5, vitamin B6, copper, magnesium, and omega-3 fatty acids, fiber, antioxidants, and potassium.
•Strawberries are high in vitamin C which helps keep skin firm and smooth and vitamin A which is vital for healthy hair and skin.
•They contain natural salicylates, an ingredient that’s found in aspirin!
•The folic acid found in Strawberries help to prevent and reduce birth defects involving the brain.
There are other ways to enjoy Strawberries long after Wimbledon is over and I’ve found some in the form of these yummy goodies.

The Strawberry Body Contouring Treatment
The latest treatment in weight loss is The Strawberry.
Areas that can be treated include small areas like bingo wings along with stretch marks and the usual bums, tum’s and thighs.
Diodes are placed on the lymph notes within the groin, to help stimulate the lymphatic system, allowing for the removal of the broken down fatty acids. Paddles are then placed on the area you want treated to allow the cold red laser beams to penetrate your skin, just deep enough to reach the layers of fat. This is followed by some rigorous exercise on the Power Plate, to help speed up your metabolism. You can expect to lose inches straight away; however this is only aided by following a good diet. Plus if you keep to a high cardio work out for the next two days following your treatment, you’ll loose even more inches.
Single treatment from £150.00, four treatments for £500.00 and eight for £1000.00.
