“An apple a day, keeps the doctor away.” Everyone knows this, but what’s exactly behind it? Is the apple really so healthy?
Apples may not have the same effect on doctors as as garlic does on vampires, however, we still can confirm that there is a lot of truth to the English saying. The apple does not reach record values in individual vitamins, but it offers a wide range of vitamins, minerals and trace elements.
Phenolic compounds protect against thrombosis, cardiovascular disease and cancer. Carotene connections clean the arteries, protect our skin from UV damage, stabilize our intestinal flora, which in turn stimulate our immune system. Forget grape-sugar – just eat an apple. The total sugar content allows you to concentrate better and longer, reduce nervousness and ensure a better sleep.
Apples have few calories and can serve as a toothbrush substitute after eating.
