Consuming healthy raw fruits and veggies can be really useful for your body and can help you treat and prevent diseases.
Apples | Cheap, Delicious Healthy Fruits, Packed with Beneficial Nutrients
What are the health benefits of Apples? Why should we eat at least one apple every day?
Apples don’t only taste good but also they give you many healthy nutrients. Apples are one of the healthiest, popular fruits in the world. They are rich in antioxidants (prevent and repair oxidation damage).
They have a high content of fibers (good for people who suffer from diarrhea or constipation), vitamins (vitamin C, potassium, calcium) and low in calories.
Think about how full you can feel if you ate 3 or 4 apples instead of drinking 1 doze of Coke Cola? Unfortunately, many people choose to drink that “poison” instead of choosing something healthy for your body, in this case, an APPLE.
Apples contain a fiber called “Pectin” that reduces the chances of your arteries getting clogged (bad cholesterol). Also, this amazing fiber does a great job of decreasing glucose levels. So, they are great in preventing heart diseases and blockages in our arteries.
Also, they are rich in polyphenols. Polyphenols are found both in the skin as well as the meat of fruit.
Polyphenols have very powerful antioxidant properties that give fruits and vegetables their color. These compounds help our body to fight oxidative stress and damage.
