An Apple a Day Goes a Long Way
Its true, an apple a day is really good for your health:
Apples provide a source of vitamins A, C, E, B1, B2, B6, Manganese & Copper. In addition, Apples are a rich source of polyphenols. Don’t peel your apples: the skin of an apple provides both beneficial insoluble fibre & polyphenols. The fleshy part of an apple provides soluble fibre and further polyphenols, which may help lower cholesterol levels and improve heart health. With all the fibre benefits, apples serve a great deal towards improving your gut health, since the prebiotic benefits in apples feed the important probiotics in your gut. The antioxidants in apples have anti-inflammatory effects, which help to reduce the risk for cancer.
Enjoy an apple a day!
