Apples promote heart health and reduce the risk of cardiovascular diseases
Apples reduce the risk of heart disease because they contain a soluble fiber called pectin which lowers the amount of bad cholesterol in the blood.(3) Fiber acts as a buffer to prevent the access of cholesterol to digestive juices to prevent their uptake by the body. Apples contain powerful antioxidants, such as flavonoids and anthocyanins (responsible for the bright colors of the apples) that lower blood pressure and protect blood vessels from oxidation.(2)
Apples may prevent cancer
Numerous studies have shown that apples have cancer-fighting compounds and are protective against breast cancer, colon cancer, and lung cancer.(2) A study in France discovered that apples have triterpenoids compounds that fight against liver cancer, colon cancer, and breast cancer.(3) Apples can lower the risk of cancer, because they have a rich antioxidant profile such as quercetin and kaempferol.
Apples aid in digestion and prevent constipation
Due to their rich fiber profile, apples assist in digestion. They promote good bowel movements and prevent stomach disorders and constipation. Fiber makes the stool bulky and thus facilitates faster transit through the digestive tract.(2)
Apples boost brain health
Studies have shown that apples enhance the health of brain neurons and prevent neurological diseases such as Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s disease. This is because they contain phytonutrients that prevent degradation of the brain which leads to alzheimers.(2) They increase the levels of acetylcholine levels in the brain which improves concentration, memory, and problem-solving skills and lower the risk of developing alzheimers.(3) They stop the gradual breakdown of nerve cells that produce dopamine which is an underlying cause of Parkinson’s disease.(2)
