You must have heard or seen this popular phrase "An Apple A Day Keeps The Doctor Away." Here are the top reasons why doctors say that phrase quite often.
Apples are a good source of essential nutrients such as dietary fiber, vitamin C, potassium, and various antioxidants that are essential for overall health.
Apples are particularly rich in dietary fiber, especially in the form of soluble fiber called pectin which helps promote digestive health, regulate bowel movements, etc.
Apples contain antioxidants like quercetin and catechins. These antioxidants help in reducing the risk of chronic diseases and inflammation.
Regular consumption of apples has been linked to a reduced risk of heart disease as it contains fiber and antioxidants that help lower cholesterol levels.
Apples are relatively low in calories and the fiber content can help you feel full, which may assist in controlling weight by reducing overall calorie intake.
Chewing apples can stimulate saliva production which neutralizes acids and promotes oral hygiene, thus helping reduce the risk of tooth decay.
The fiber in apples can help regulate blood sugar levels, therefore it is beneficial for people to control diabetes. However, excess consumption is not good.
