Health Benefits

  • Your Head: Fresh apples and apple juice may improve cognition, reduce hallmark signs of Alzheimer’s and improve mood.
  • Your Heart: The soluble fiber found in apples, known as pectin, builds up in your digestive tract and helps rid your body’s cholesterol.
  • Your Lungs: Eating at least five apples per week has been found to help lower the risk of respiratory disease. The antioxidants found in apples protect your body from damaging oxidation.
  • Your Waistline: One medium apple contains five grams of fiber – more than most cereals. Dietary fiber aids in digestion and helps keep you full, promoting weight loss.
  • Your Colon: The pectin in apples has also been shown to promote butyrate – a fatty acid that plays a role in colon health.  This combination also significantly reduces the growth of pre-cancerous and tumor cells.
