An Apple a Day!

It’s one of the oldest adages, yet one of the most ignored. As the obesity numbers rise and the health and wellness industry becomes more and more profitable, many people are forgetting some of the simplest ways to become healthier. While everyone is trying to sell the next big health food, the neglected apple sits on the tree, silently screaming, “REMEMBER ME.” Let us remind you of all the Benefits of the Apple!

Lowers Bad Cholesterol

Apples contain a polysaccharide called pectin which studies show helps lower low-density lipoprotein (LDL) Cholesterol. 2 apples a day will reduce your LDL 10%. Other benefits of pectin are improved insulin resistance and prevent a surge in blood glucose levels.

Prevents Breast Cancer

A study done by Cornell University found that rats who were given 1, 2, or 3 apples per day reduced their risks of breast cancer by 17, 39, and 44 percent respectively.

Weight Loss

Researchers in Brazil found significant weight loss among women who ate 3 apples per day as opposed to those who didn’t. Eating an apple before a meal will help you fill up and eat less as well. The honest truth about weight loss is that you will have to eat more fruits and vegetables and less junk.

Clean Teeth

Eat more apples to clean your teeth naturally. The juice in an apple is so sharp; it whitens the teeth and brightens your smile. Drink water while eating an apple to remove the sugar from your teeth.

These are only a few of the many benefits of an Apple. Always remember to keep apples refrigerated and don’t buy apples that you can dent with your finger.
