An apple a day...

In health by eating an apple a day, it will keep us fit and will give us enough nutrients.
There are more than 7,500 varieties of apples worldwide. They are rich in many nutrients which people have known for centuries, keeping us healthy and vital. Some of the healing nutrients in apples include antioxidants. Antioxidants help prevent oxidation in the body which prevents cell and tissue damage. Cell and tissue damage is the main aging effect in the body. The skins are rich in flavanoids which have anti-viral, anti-inflammatory, anti-tumor, anti-allergic, and anti-oxidant properties. Apples also have a high level of fiber both soluble and insoluble.

The phytochemicals in apples help slow the aging process. Apples help reduce the risk factor for cancer, heart disease, stroke, high blood pressure, cataracts, osteoporosis, and urinary tract infections. Two Cornell studies have shown that apples help improve brain health and decreases the risk for breast cancer. Most of the flavanoids are found in the skin of the apple, giving them their beautiful colors.
