An apple a day keeps the doctor away...?
Research has verified this statement and recent studies have linked apples/apple products to helping with everything from weight loss to different types of cancer, heart disease, type 2 diabetes and even asthma.
Some of the most recent studies on apples and apple products have linked apples with improving the symptoms of Alzheimer´s disease and possibly decreasing your risk for developing it as well as improved immunity and gut health due to the pectin (soluble fiber) found in the apples peel.
All these benefits for around 80 calories/apple, and they taste great too!
Get your servings the apple way!
...so what counts as a serving size for apples?
1 fresh medium apple
2 cups of applesauce
1 cup of sliced apples
4 cups of dried apples
6oz of 100% apple juice or cider
Why not make staying healthy taste good too!
