apples for youth, health and long life

Apart from the taste offered in every delicious crunch of this fruit, apples are a ‘mainstay’ of a healthy diet.

Just to name a few:

• Rich in antioxidants: Apples offer an ample supply of antioxidants, which can bind the free radicals formed in our body. Free radicals are substances released during bio-chemical life-processes, which can trigger tumor growth of the cells, leading to cancer.

• Wrinkles: Regular consumption of apples has been shown to help prevent against skin-damage caused by exposure to the sun.

• Cholesterol: Apples are rich in compounds such as phenols, anthocyanins and flavonols, which hinder the formation of the bad cholesterol LDL (low density lipids).

• Heart Disease: Another heart-healthy compound called catechins are present in apples. These compounds pave way for a heart-healthy living and also prevent the incidence of chronic diseases.
