The garden strawberry (or simply strawberry; Fragaria × ananassa) is a widely grown hybrid species of the genus Fragaria (collectively known as the strawberries). It is cultivated worldwide for its fruit.
People take strawberry for a wide range of conditions including diarrhea, sluggish intestines, liver disease, yellowed skin (jaundice), pain and swelling (inflammation) of the lining of the respiratory tract, gout, arthritis, nervous tension, water retention (edema), kidney ailments involving gravel and stones, fever, night sweats, and “tired blood” (anemia).
It is also used for “purifying the blood,” stimulating metabolism, preventing menstruation, and supporting “natural weight loss.”
Some people put strawberry in a cloth and hold it against the skin (as a compress) for rashes.
