An apple a day keeps the doctor away

In our childhood, we all have heard the phrase An apple a day keeps the doctor away but did we ever analyze this fact. Does Apple really help us in maintaining health? Well, let’s evaluate some of the major constituents of apple and their effect on our health.

Pectin: Pectin is a type of soluble fiber which helps us to lower down the blood pressure, cholesterol and also glucose levels. It also improves our digestive system.

Boron: A nutrient present in apples which promotes strong bones and healthy brain.

Quercetin: This beneficial nutrient reduces the risk of Cancer like Lung Cancer etc. Quercetin also helps in prevention of Alzheimer's disease.

Phytonutrients:  Apples also contains a number of Phytonutrients in abundance which majorly includes Vitamin A, Vitamin, E and Beta carotene. These components play a key role to destroy the activities of free radicals which can cause severe damage to our body, and helps in preventing diseases like diabetes, cardiovascular disease and Asthma.

Conclusion: In literal terms if we eat an apple a day, the chances of illness will be very much less and can definitely reduce our frequency to doctor’s clinic in the long run. Not, only that I would also like to suggest my friends, please include variety of fruits in our daily life like citrus fruits, tropical fruits and berries which are highly nutritional and rich in vitamins.
