Ever wondered why an apple a day keeps the doctor away? Well….

Apples are a rich source of flavonoid and polyphenols, which are powerful antioxidant.  Studies show that by eating one apple you get an antioxidant effect that equals taking 1,500mg of vitamin C.

Apples contain a large amount of minerals and vitamins that can strengthen the blood, help prevent disturbances of the liver and digestion, help to prevent the formation of kidney stone, lower cholesterol and reduce skin diseases.

Apples have been recommended for : Obesity, Headache, Arthritis, Bronchial asthma, Inflammation of the bladder, Gonorrhea, Anemia, Tuberculosis, Neuritis, Insomnia, Catarrh, Gallbladder stones, Worms, Halitosis and Pyorrhea (periodontal disease).  And, to top it off… Apples, not caffeine, are more efficient at waking you up in the morning.
