The health benefits of apples

Apples are an incredibly nutritious fruit that offers multiple health benefits. They're rich in fiber and antioxidants. Eating them is linked to a lower risk of many chronic conditions, including diabetes, heart disease, and cancer. Apples may also promote weight loss and improve gut and brain health.

You’ve probably heard the age-old saying, “An apple a day keeps the doctor away.” Apple have more than 7,500 different varieties and are one of the most consumed and grown fruits worldwide. When you eat them fresh and whole (as opposed to pre-sliced, juiced, or as applesauce), they are the healthiest. Approximately 80 calories, 1 gram of protein, 19 grams of natural sugar, and no fat, sodium, or cholesterol are present in a medium one. Despite not being a miracle food, eating apples is beneficial for your health.

Apples also have a low glycemic index, so eating them won't cause a spike in blood sugar levels. So even though a red Delicious or a golden Honeycrisp might taste incredibly sweet, your body can handle the sugar. Additionally, eating an apple as a snack can be a sensible way to satisfy cravings because apples are sweet and filling. Just be certain to consume the entire fruit, peel and all. Because of the fiber, you will feel fuller for a longer period of time

The following are the varieties of apple :

  • Red Delicious
  • McIntosh
  • Crispin
  • Gala
  • Granny Smith
  • Fuji
  • Honeycrisp
  • Kashmiri apples


Apples are considered nutrient-dense fruits, they provide a lot of nutrients per serving. The current Dietary Guidelines for Americans recommend 2 cups of fruit daily for a 2,000-calorie diet, emphasizing whole fruits, like apples One medium (7-ounce (200-grams) apple offers the following nutrients.

  • 104 calories
  • 28 grams of carbs
  • 5 grams of fiber
  • 10% of the daily value for vitamin C
  • 6% of the DV is copper.
  • 5% of the DV for potassium
  • 4% of the DV for vitamin K

A significant class of antioxidants called polyphenols is also abundant in apples. Antioxidants are substances that shield your cells from free radicals and other dangerous molecules that can cause chronic diseases like cancer and heart disease. Although these plant compounds are not listed on nutrition labels, they are probably the source of many of apples' health advantages. Apples should be consumed with the skin on since it contains the majority of the polyphenols and half of the fiber.
