Health Tip Thursday: An Apple a Day….


Everyone knows the saying, “An apple a day keeps the doctor away.” But are we truly aware of all of the health benefits that apples really provide?  Over 85 studies have been conducted on this delicious super fruit and results are fascinating.

Apples are considered to be an anti-inflammatory food; therefore, according to research it is an excellent natural source to lower heart disease, help with weight loss,  assist in the fight against cancer, diabetes and asthma. Because apples are an excellent source of antioxidants they fight off free radicals and some studies have found that the particular antioxidants found in apples (polyphenols) could extend our lifespan. Apples are also a great source of fiber, but you have to eat the peel.

I have made a habit of chopping an apple and placing it over my spinach salad and adding a few walnuts with a light vinaigrette dressing – yummy! So take it from me, if you want to maintain a healthy lifestyle, you may want to take advantage of eating an apple a day.
