Health benefit to be documented in strawberry research is the area of blood sugar benefits. Several recent studies have found regular intake of strawberries to be associated with decreased risk of type 2 diabetes.

In these studies, significant benefits do not emerge until frequency of intake reaches at least 2-3 strawberry servings per week.
