An Apple a Day...
We’ve all heard the expression that “an apple a day keeps the doctor away,” but is it true? If it is, why? This seems like something we could all use to do, so why don’t we? Some people even suggest that an apple a day isn’t even enough. I’m here to answer some of these questions and more as we investigate what happens when you eat an apple a day.
The main thing that science has been able to back up about general apple nutrition is that eating apples have been shown to reduce the risk of stroke. That’s enough right there to make me eat and apple a day. Not that anyone would have to make me eat any apples, as they’re so tasty to begin with. Both the flavor and the health benefits come from the deep color in apples. Pectin from apples naturally lowers your blood pressure, while the vitamin C fights of cancer causing carcinogens. Along with these, you’ll find flavonoids, phytonutrients, boron, and various other nutrients.
Apart from the nutritional content of apples, they are also extremely convenient, bio-available, and act as a natural toothbrush.
With all these nutrients, it does seem plausible that an apple can make you feel healthier, but can it really keep the doctor away?
The truth is, no fruit is going to protect you from all ailments, but by eating any fruit daily, your health will be much greater and you probably will enjoy less trips to the doctor.
