Did you know?: Health Benefits of Apples

Apparently an apple a day does keep the doctor away!

It seems our parents were right. Apples have many health benefits but they need to be eaten as a whole food, with the skin, which gives the most benefits. Apples can help fight cancers, help with weight management, are good for our hearts and our endurance.

Health Benefits of Apples

  • The apple peel has compounds that have shown to the slow the growth of cancer cells in the liver, colon and breast. Apples can also help to prevent mouth, oesophagus, lung and stomach cancers.
  • When apples are eaten whole they can lower blood fats and prevent changes in your blood sugar.
  • The fibre in apples can slow down the build up of cholesterol-rich plaque in our arteries.
  • Red apples can help boost your endurance during workouts by making oxygen more available to our lungs.

What an amazing fruit! and thankfully delicious.
