Red, yellow and green, apples come in over 7500 different varieties, giving you plenty of choice for the world’s healthiest food. Whether you eat them crisp and raw, or slice them into fruit salads and dessert, or whether you decide to bake them or eat them in tangy dry loops, apples are always available for a stunning health kick and a burst of refreshing flavor.
Here are 9 surprising health benefits of eating at least an apple a day:
Just one medium apple and its beautifully washed skin will give you over 17% of your daily recommended amount of dietary fiber. Fiber benefits your digestive health tremendously, helping to keep bowel movements regular and activating the digestive juice and gastric juices that help to breakdown food for nutrient absorption. It also helps to cleanse your colon, scraping away excess fat, cholesterol and built up residues, giving you the feeling of being happier, healthier and totally refreshed, from the inside out.
Both the skin and the flesh of apples are highly beneficial in dental care, as they work together to cleanse out bacteria, plaque and acidic buildup. Chewing a chunk of apple stimulates the secretion of saliva, which alkalizes your mouth and leaves bacteria no option to thrive.
