Apples have been cultivated for thousands of years throughout Asia and Europe and are notable for their impressive list of phytonutrients and antioxidants. They are believed to have health promoting and disease preventing properties justifying the adage “an apple a day keeps the doctor away”. Although at a rate of just one apple a day and with over 7000 varieties it would take nineteen years to sample every type!
Bursting with antioxidants, phytonutrients and soluble fibre, apples are said to benefit the body in many ways, from improving digestion, to lowering cholesterol and regulating blood sugar levels. They are also loaded with vitamin C, important in the development of collagen in bones, muscles and blood vessels.
Apples are a rich source of dietary fibre which is vital as it helps support the digestive process, allowing food to pass through the digestive tract more smoothly. Regular consumption of apples ensures smooth bowel movements and helps prevent constipation and various stomach disorders. Adding soluble fibre to your diet lowers the risk of heart disease and helps your gut stay healthy.
