A healthy digestion plays a crucial role in weight loss and the fibre in strawberry fruit can aid sluggish bowel. Poor digestion can lead to weight gain, as we are not able to absorb and assimilate our nutrients properly. Moreover, it may not be able to eliminate waste from our body efficiently either. This could lead to slowing down of the metabolic rate, which makes it more difficult to burn calories properly.

A tea made from strawberry leaves is also a traditional remedy to soothe acid indigestion.

Making Strawberry Leaf Tea is very, very simple. First, you look at your strawberry plant. Make sure you find the biggest, cleanest leaves. It’s very important to inspect the leaves for blemishes, bugs, fungi, or any inconsistencies in the leaves. The leave need to be green and pristine.

This next part is extremely important. There are only two ways to consume strawberry leaves:  completely fresh OR completely dry. No in-betweens as this could be dangerous. As a leaf decays there is chemical decomposition taking place and it is not healthy to consume these leaves. The easiest is to pick them straight off the plant and use them immediately.
