The 'Authentic Orleans' strawberry is back!

The first nutraceutical strawberry in the world, the Authentic Orleans, is back in your grocery stores for three weeks only!

QUEBEC, July 2, 2013 /CNW Telbec/ - The Authentic Orleans strawberry, whose health effects have been scientifically proven, is back on your grocery store shelves.

Naturally selected for its great taste, this unique variety contains more antioxidants and bioactive molecules than traditional fruit. The Authentic Orleans strawberry is grown exclusively in Île d'Orleans, near Quebec City.

The Authentic Orleans strawberry has reduced inflammation and biomarkers related to metabolic syndrome and type 2 diabetes in animal studies.

A clinical trial with 60 participants is currently being conducted under the supervision of Dr. Helene Jacques and Dr. John Weisnagel to confirm on a global scale whether or not the health effects on animals can be equally beneficial on humans.

They are continuing to search for men and women who are at risk of developing type 2 diabetes in order to reach 60 participants. If you would like to participate in this study, please contact Mrs. Julie Marois at Laval University at julie.marois@fsaa.ulaval.ca or 418-656-2131, ext 5764.
