POWER Foods – Apples
We’ve all heard it before: An apple a day keeps the doctor away.
But do they really? Let’s find out today on this week’s edition of POWER Foods.
Apples have a big history in the human diet. I’m sure we all remember our moms putting an apple into our lunchbox or slicing them up as a snack at the house when we were younger. There’s even been literature and lore written around this fateful fruit. So what is it about apples that make them so special?
Vitamin C is incredibly important in blocking free radicals as well as boosting the body’s immune system against infection. If you don’t have a citrus fruit handy then an apple will do just fine!
These are integral in maintaining healthy red blood cells and for upkeep of the nervous system.
There aren’t very many better ways to help reduce your bad cholesterol level than making sure your diet is high in fiber.
Remember, food IS vitamins. In an apple you’ll find calcium, potassium, phosphorus, thiamin and and so much more!
