Reasons To Have An Apple A Day

Apples are an exceptionally beneficial food for people to eat. They are sweet which makes them not hard to eat and there are enough varieties available that people can find one that fits the size of apple they’re looking for. In addition, they contain a variety of vitamins and nutrients that people need to be healthy.

Apples are good for you. You’ve heard it from the time you were a tiny kid… “An apple a day keeps the doctor away”. But how do apples actually benefit your health?They knew about the health benefits of apples centuries ago (where do you think the saying “an apple a day keeps the doctor away” came from) and while many things have changed since then, the benefits of apples have not.

Apples help our bodies fight cancer; studies have shown that there are several components in juicy fruit, such as apples, which help to prevent the growth of cancer cells. Healthy apples are most potent when the fruit is eaten whole, including the skin, and by choosing the darker apples, such as deep Red Delicious, Fuji, Jonathan, Rome Beauty and Red Spartan. Apples are a good source of vitamin C and fiber. Italian researchers found people who ate more than one apple a day lowered their risk for oral, esophageal, colon, breast, ovarian, prostate and other cancers by 9 to 42%.

You know the saying “An apple a day keeps the doctor away”. It may well be true that it is time to rethink this, and start eating your apples as a receipe for healthy living.

Here are some of the major benefits of apple cider vinegar alone:

  1. apple cider vinegar and weight loss
  2. apple cider vinegar and acid reflux
  3. apple cider vinegar and acne
  4. apple cider vinegar and wart
  5. apple cider vinegar and heartburn
  6. apple cider vinegar and yeast infection
  7. apple cider vinegar and arthritis
  8. apple cider vinegar for skin
  9. apple cider vinegar and cholesterol
  10. apple cider vinegar for hair
  11. apple cider vinegar and blood pressure
  12. apple cider vinegar for sinus infection

Benefits of apple eating

Apple is also said to be an “airy” fruit as 25 percent of an apple’s volume is air (this is the reason why they float when put in water) but remaining is filled with different vitamins and nutrients. Apples contain both insoluble and soluble fibre which can lower cholesterol, relieve constipation, and protect against cancer (especially breast and colon cancer), heart attack, macular degeneration, menopausal bone loss, asthma, type II diabetes, strokes, increased lung function and weight loss.

* Provide antioxidant protection

* Aid iron absorption

* Help to keep bad LDL cholesterol level in check and can even lower it.

* Help prevent heart disease, heart attacks and stroke.

* Reduce the risk of lung cancer, improve lung function and reduce the severity of asthma. It seems that children who drink apple juice daily have less severe asthma compared to those who drink the juice one a month.

* Reduce the risk of type 2 diabetes

* Help regulate blood pressure

There are many more reasons to eat well and enjoy life, but none greater than to increase the quality and quantity of life  for yourself and those you love and care for like family and friends and even strangers.

Go ahead share this blog post with someone you love or even someone you hate, just pass it on and give them a reason to think of you every time they eat an apple.  I hope its an apple a day.
