Ever wonder if the saying “an apple a day will keep the doctor away” still holds merit?
While it definitely takes more than one apple a day to keep you healthy, it is a step in the right direction.
Apples are a great source of soluble fiber, which can prevent cholesterol build-up and reduce the incidence of heart disease. They are also high in insoluble fiber, which provides bulk to the intestinal tract to keep things moving smoothly in your digestive system. What you might not know is that apples are high in many antioxidants such as vitamin C, which can help prevent different types of cancers.
Apples are a perfect sweet and crunchy snack that are low in calories and easy to take along with you. There are a variety of kinds to choose, from tart Granny Smiths to sweet Fuji apples.
