All Things Apples!
It’s that time of year again! Leaves changing, football in full gear and apple season – yea!!!
Though you may not think of apples as a superfood, you probably take them for granted.
Sure they are not as sexy as pomegranates, kiwi, blueberries or acai berries, but they contain numerous awesome health benefits.
That’s because apples contain not only flavonoids (think antioxidants) which neutralize free radicals that damage cells, but they are high in a certain type of fiber known as pectin.
Pectin is a soluble fiber found in the walls of plant cells. There are many health benefits associated with pectin including reducing cholesterol and blood pressure, improving bowel function, and lowering the risk of type 2 diabetes
And that’s not all! Apples are rich in vitamin C and minerals such as phosphorus, potassium, and even a tiny amount of calcium which all have positive effects on health.
