Fruit: the benefits of the apple!

  1. We all know the apple, but not the benefits of the fruit. We still eat about 10.3 kilos of apples per person per year. The fruit has very few calories, but many health benefits. For example, did you know that the apple can significantly reduce the risk of cardiovascular disease? The fruit can even prevent cancer! The apple has several nutrients and minerals that contribute to a healthy lifestyle.

Fibers

  1. First, an apple contains 10% of the recommended amount of fiber per day. Since we do not consume enough fiber per day on average, the apple can provide a proper supplement to our eating behavior. The fiber provides many health benefits, such as:

Antioxidants

  1. Second, the apple contains antioxidants, namely flavonoids and phenolic acid. These are both 50% in the skin of the apple. Antioxidants have a very beneficial effect on the body, as they scavenge free radicals. Free radicals are known for their reactive power. In the worst case, they can cause cancer by causing damage to cells and DNA. This results in the scenario that a cell can no longer perform its function properly and it will divide unnaturally often, thus causing cancer. In addition, free radicals also stimulate the aging process. The amount in which the free radicals occur in our body is called the oxidative stress. The higher this stress, the more harmful the free radicals can become. An apple can help reduce this stress, so that the harms of the free radicals are minimized.

Potassium

  1. Apples are also very high in potassium content. That is very nice since potassium is an essential mineral, which means that the body cannot produce it itself. Several bodily processes cannot take place in the absence of potassium. For example, the impulse transfers in the nerves are based on different potassium concentrations. In addition, potassium has several other health benefits:

Vitamin C

  1. An apple also contains ascorbic acid, or while vitamin C. A vitamin C deficiency can have serious consequences. Vitamin C ensures proper production of connective tissue. This is because the protein collagen is produced under the guidance of ascorbic acid. Collagen ensures that the connective tissue can form, it functions as a kind of glue, one could say. If this is deficient, scurvy could develop. Scurvy, also called scorbutus, is manifested by bleeding gums, petechiae and internal bleeding. In addition, a shortage of ascorbic acid can contribute to a crumbling resistance, but also a delayed wound healing. In addition to the fact that ascorbic acid thus helps to form connective tissue, it also maintains resistance. It also makes an essential contribution to the absorption of iron.

Conclusion

  1. Apples can be very healthy and prevent a variety of ailments. Thus, the antioxidants play an essential role in avoiding all kinds of ailments such as cancer and premature aging processes. The potassium ensures that the impulse transfers can proceed smoothly and correctly. The vitamin C prevents scurvy and all kinds of other disorders due to a lack of connective tissue. Finally, the fibers provide the feeling of fullness, so that people do not eat too high in calories, which in turn has a limiting effect on the formation of free radicals. So the saying "an apple a day keeps the doctor away from you" is completely appropriate!
