6 incredible health advantages of Apples you should know

"An apple a day keeps the doctor away” is an old proverb you've probably heard. Despite not being a miracle food, eating apples is beneficial for your health.”

An apple is a fruit with a bit of crisp and a vibrant shade. Depending on the kind you're eating, an apple might have a sweet or acidic taste. Apples are widely grown all over the world and were first introduced in Central Asia. 

They include high levels of vitamin C, fiber, minerals, and several types of antioxidants. Apples will never let you down, whether you consume them as a stand-alone snack in the middle of a hectic day or use them in salads, smoothies, pies, and desserts.

There are several types of apples in India, such as:

  • Ambri Apple
  • McIntosh Apple
  • Granny Smith
  • Honeycrisp
  • Chaubattia Anupam
  • Golden Delicious
  • Sunehari
  • Fuji Apple
  • Tydeman’s Early
  • Red Delicious

According to the National Center for Biotechnology Information, “A reduced risk of cardiovascular disease has been associated with apple consumption. The Women's Health study surveyed nearly 40,000 women with a 6.9-year follow-up and examined the association between flavonoids and cardiovascular disease. Women ingesting apples had a 13–22% decrease in cardiovascular disease risk."

Apple Advantages

The plant compounds known as flavonoids found in apples have several health benefits for you. They also contain pectin, a fiber that is digested in the intestines. You won't consume as much fiber or flavonoids if the apple's peel is removed before eating.

Other health benefits from apples:

  • Apples may reduce high blood pressure and cholesterol
  • Apples can help with digestion
  • Apples can help maintain a strong immune system
  • Diabetes-friendly fruit
  • Apples Could Reduce the Risk of Alzheimer's
  • Apple intake can improve healthy weight loss

You may feel fuller after eating since the fiber might slow digestion. By doing this, you can avoid overeating. The fiber in apples can also help with diarrhea and constipation.

Nutrients in Apple

Apples are low in cholesterol, fat, and salt. Apples are a wonderful source of vitamin C and fiber, even though they don't contain any protein.

A medium apple contains approximately

  1. A hundred calories
  2. 25 gms of carbs
  3. 4 gms of fiber
  4. 19 gms of added sugar 
  5. Numerous potent antioxidants

Make sure the apples you purchase are thick and hard. To keep apples fresh for a longer period, put them in the refrigerator. However, they will grow considerably more quickly if kept at room temperature. Leave the apple's peel on while eating it, since it contains more than half of the fruit's fiber.

Apples are a very nutrient-dense fruit with a number of health advantages. Including diabetes, heart disease, and cancer, eating them is linked to a reduced risk of many chronic illnesses. Although more investigation is still required to fully comprehend how apples impact human health, you can't go wrong with this delightful, flexible, and easily available fruit.
