Why are Apples so good for you?
Where to start with the bag full of apple health benefits? Eating an apple can actually help you lose weight. The pectin fibre found in an apple helps lower the body’s absorption of excess fats whilst also helping you feel full for longer. In addition, this wonder fibre can help your digestion, relieve constipation and paradoxically, alleviate diarrhea. Other apple benefits include boosting brain power through the production of acetylcholine and giving you a fantastic smile and strong gums due to malic acid which stimulates saliva production.
Meanwhile, there are added apple health benefits from eating the skin due to a compound called flavonoid phlorizin which may help prevent bone loss associated with menopause.
