Let’s keep the doctor away by eating an apple a day!
And no, we aren’t just saying that because we are apple growers!
Apples are one of nature’s best superfoods and full of good-for-you nutrients! Apples have quercetin (found in the skin of the apple), a powerful antioxidant that protects brain cells and blocks free radicals. They help reduce the risk of diabetes thanks to the fruit’s low glycemic index, contain boron and phloridzin to protect bones, and vitamin B to boost skin health. Apples have been linked to preventing many chronic diseases including heart disease and cancers of the breast, lung, and more.
Apples are a great natural energy source! They can aid in weight loss as they contain soluble fiber to support digestion and keep you feeling fuller longer. Research found those who ate a whole apple before a meal consumed fewer calories overall.
