Apparently the old adage “an apple a day keeps the doctor away” has merit.
Why does “an apple a day keep the doctor away?”
- Apples are a good source of both insoluble fiber, roughage, and soluble fiber, pectin.
- Pectin lowers cholesterol, helps digestion, and helps maintain steady blood sugar levels.
- Fiber keeps the bowels working and healthy.
- Apples are rich in vitamins and minerals.
- Apple skin contains quercetin, an antioxidant that is very good for your heart and lungs…
- and lowers the risk of heart disease and fights cancer.
- Apples can help control weight – apples are effective in suppressing the appetite.
So when you eat your organic apple, eat the skin as well.
Apples are perfect for juicing along with vegetables.
Every morning, I juice some vegetables and add an apple for taste.
An apple also makes a great mid morning or afternoon snack.
So if you’re on the run…why not grab an apple, feed your heart lungs, and keep that doctor away.
My favorite morning juice blend
1 large carrot
1 small to medium beet
a handful of spinach
Juice, pour into a wine glass, and drink to your health.
