We have all heard the phrase “One apple a day keeps the doctor away”, but we hardly ever hear why… here are some reasons:
- Apples regulate cholesterol levels
- Apples strengthen immune system: decreasing respiratory illnesses
- Apples regulate insulin levels: decreasing the risk of diabetes
Another great reason is that it can help you keep a leaner figure; a Penn State study showed that if you eat an apple about 15 minutes before lunch you may consume almost 200 calories less.
