HEALTHY LIVING: 9 Reasons why An Apple a Day Really Keeps the Doctor away

"An apple a day keeps the doctor away"…but why? Do you really know
what makes an apple so special?
Apples have properties that no other fruits have and its benefits have
been proven overtime.
1-Apple contains Vitamin C. Vitamin C helps greatly your immune
system. A lot of people who lack Vitamin C in their diet have poor
healing, bruise easily and have bleeding gums.

2-Prevent Heart Diseases. The reason it can prevent both coronary
heart disease and cardiovascular disease is because apples are rich in
flavonoid. Flavonoids are also known for their antioxidant effects.

3-Low in calories. Eating an apple when craving for candy or chocolate
can make the desire disappear since apple in itself contains sugar,
but gives you only ¼ of the calories.

4-Prevent Cancers. Notice the plural. We all know that cancer comes in
several forms and in different parts of the body.

5-Apples contain phenols, which have a double effect on cholesterol.
They prevent LDL cholesterol from turning into oxidized LDL, a very
dangerous form of bad cholesterol which can be deadly.

6-Prevent tooth decay. Tooth decay is an infection that seriously
damages the structure of your teeth, which is caused primarily because
of bacteria.

7-Protects your brain from brain disease. Apple has substances called
phytonutrients, and these phytonutrients prevents neurodegenerative
diseases like Alzheimer's and Parkinsonism.

8-Healthier Lungs. A research at the University of Nottingham Research
shows that people who eat 5 apples or more per week has lower
respiratory problems, including asthma.

9-They taste great! And not only that, they also come in many flavors
and colors.
