One cup of apples (138 grams) provides about 81 calories and contains about 21 grams of carbohydrates and 3.7 grams of fibre.
Apples contains flavonoids, quercetin, catechin, phloridzin and chlorogenic acid that protect the heart as they are potent antioxidants.
Flavonoids prevent excessive inflammation, regulate blood pressure, prevent too much clumping together of blood platelets; both soluble and insoluble fibre in apples helps lower LDL (bad) cholesterol levels.
Eating an apple daily reduces the risk of lung cancer, colon cancer and breast cancer. Red apple peel also contains many antioxidants that have cancer-fighting (antiproliferative) properties.
Phytochemicals in apples (hydroxycinnamic acids, D-glucaric acid, oligomeric procyanidins) help in preventing mutations, promoting the demise of cancerous growths and limiting cancer spread.
Eat Apples always and be assured that your health will certainly improve.
