Big Health Benefits Of Apples

Apple is a very healthy fruit , with a lot of health benefits . In fact , eating it reflects a lot of benefits to our body!!

This post present the most big health benefits of apples..
1.  Apples Lower Cholesterol

One medium-sized apple contains about four grams of fiber. Some of that is in the form of pectin, a type of soluble fiber that has been linked to lower levels of LDL or “bad” cholesterol. That’s because it blocks absorption of cholesterol, helping the body to use it rather than store it.

2.  Apples Keep You Full

Apple’s wealth of fiber can also keep you feeling full for longer without costing you a lot of calories — there are about 95 in a medium-sized piece of fruit. That’s because it takes our bodies longer to digest complex fiber than more simple materials like sugar or refined grains. 

3.  Apples Keep You Slim

One component of an apple’s peel (which also has most of the fiber) is something called ursolic acid, which was linked to a lower risk of obesity . That’s because it boosts calorie burn and increases muscle and brown fat.

4.  Apples Prevent Breathing Problems

Five or more apples a week (less than an apple a day!) has been linked with better lung function, most likely because of an antioxidant called quercetin found in the skin of apples (as well as in onions and tomatoes)

5.  Apples Fight Colds

Apples are considered a good source of immune system-boosting vitamin C, with over 8 milligrams per medium-sized fruit, which amounts to roughly 14 percent of your daily recommended intake.

6. Apples Decrease Diabetes Risk

Apples, as well as pears and blueberries, are linked with a lower risk of developing type 2 diabetes because of a class of antioxidants, anthocyanins, that are also responsible for red, purple and blue colors in fruits and veggies.
