19 Sep

An apple a day keeps the doctor away?  Absolutely!  Well, at least it will keep you healthier between visits!  According to the experts, here are 5 great benefits:

1. Nutrition

We need fiber, people.  Yes, apples are where it’s at.  And, eating just one will help you hit your fruit quota for the day.

2. Weight Loss

Apples satisfy hunger for a few calories and contain antioxidants and pectin (a type of fiber)

3. Heart Health

Several studies show that frequent apple eaters have less risk of cardiovascular disease and stroke.

4.  Protect Against Metabolic Syndrome

Eating apples can help those already at risk from diabetes and heart disease

5. Exercise Extender

Want more from your work out, eat any apple!   It will help send more oxygen to your lungs and increase your endurance.  Who knew??

Eating an apple in its most natural state will be the most healthy benefit.  However, they are so good when prepared in other ways!  But what is the best apple for baking, cooking, eating, etc?
