Health Benefits of Apples

Especially high in vitamin C, apples also provide vitamin A as a powerful antioxidant to help resist infection and scavenge free radicals that cause inflammation. They also contain a significant amount of fiber which can help prevent absorption of LDL (bad) cholesterol. Apples are a good source of B-complex vitamins such as riboflavin (vitamin B2), thiamin (vitamin B1), and pyridoxine (vitamin B6), which together release enzyme power to support metabolism and other vital functions inside the body.

Other minerals in apples include iron, copper, zinc, phosphorus, calcium, and potassium, which are important components in helping to control heart rate and blood pressure. All these good things and more explain why apples can legitimately be called a “super food.”

Warning: Apples are one of the most pesticide-contaminated foods in the produce section, so it’s best to buy them organic.
