An Apple a Day Really Keeps the Doctor away

“An apple a day keeps the doctor away”?but why? Do you really know what makes an apple so special? Why is it that we never hear an orange or a banana a day keeps the doctor away?
Apples have properties that no other fruits have and its benefits have been proven overtime. You will be able to get the benefits of these properties individually with other fruits, but an apple combines everything and makes it simpler. It has been shown over and over that if it’s not simple, easy and fast, people won’t take care of their health.

1-Apple contains Vitamin C. Vitamin C helps greatly your immune system. A lot of people who lack Vitamin C in their diet have poor healing, bruise easily and have bleeding gums.

2-Prevent Heart Diseases. The reason it can prevent both coronary heart disease and cardiovascular disease is because apples are rich in flavonoid. Flavonoids are also known for their antioxidant effects.

3-Low in calories. A regular size apple has between 70-100 calories. Eating an apple when craving for candy or chocolate can make the desire disappear since apple in itself contains sugar, but gives you only ? of the calories.

4-Prevent Cancers. Notice the plural. We all know that cancer comes in several forms and in different places. Apples target multiple cancers such as colon cancer, prostate cancer and breast cancer in women.

5-Apples contain phenols, which have a double effect on cholesterol. It reduces bad cholesterol and increases good cholesterol. They prevent LDL cholesterol from turning into oxidized LDL, a very dangerous form of bad cholesterol which can be deadly.

6-Prevent tooth decay. Tooth decay is an infection that seriously damages the structure of your teeth, which is caused primarily because of bacteria. The juice of the apples has properties that can kill up to 80% of bacteria. So there you have it, an apple a day also keeps the dentist away!

7-Protects your brain from brain disease. This is something many people don’t know, and when you consider that your brain makes the person you are, it gives a whole new perspective. Apple has substances called phytonutrients, and these phytonutrients prevents neurodegenerative diseases like Alzheimer’s and Parkinsonism.

8-Healthier Lungs. A research at the University of Nottingham Research shows that people who eat 5 apples or more per week has lower respiratory problems, including asthma.

9-They taste great! And not only that, they also come in many flavors and colors. Not in a mood for a green apple? Why not get a red one, or a macintosh! Their taste can vary greatly, but still give you all the apple benefits. Variety is an important element to maintaining your health.

On average, Americans consume around 20 pounds of apples a year, which comes to around 1 apple a week. Unfortunately, while an apple a week is better than nothing, it is nowhere close to being able to extract all the advantages apples have to offer. Eating apples is part of balanced and healthy diet than will increase your longevity, so why limit yourself to only 1 per week?

    I eat an apple almost everyday.. it helps crave my hunger between meals.. with a little all natural peanut butter.. it is a delicious and healthy snack. Some days, I will include a little honey which adds a nice sweetness.

    Great article. I have been buying apples for 3 months and never eat them they always go bad. After reading an article written by a doctor that stated fruit was the cure to cancer if you eat your fruit on an empty stomach I made a commitment to eat more fruit. I just happen to finish cutting up an apple and wanted to know why an apple a day keeps the doctor away.

    Your article inspired me to eat my apples everyday… Good Job! I have passed this to my twitter or over 7,000 and my small facebook friends of over 300 I hope they will pass it along.

    Great article .. I am on a goal to eat more fruit and I started with apples. I was just about to sit down and eat one before dinner and started thinking about that old saying “an apple a day keeps the doctor away” and wonder why is that.

    so here I am and your article has inspired me to eat an apple every day like a plan and stop letting them to waste.

    Great work..

    Great article. I did not know that apple can help to improve respiratory problems. No doubt apple is a elixir rather than a fruit.

    Apples are very high on nutritional value and they contain around 15% carbohydrates from sugar and fibers. Some people tend to worry about the high amount of sugars in an apple but you need not worry about this sugar as this does not lead to a spike in blood sugar levels.
