Apples ; It really keeps the doctor away

So, I bet we all have heard that saying that goes something like 'an apple a day keeps the doctor away'. Well, it's not just what has been said, it is what has been a proven fact. Apples are said to eliminate body's excessive acids, effectively tones down a case of acidosis, rheumatism, jaundice,skin disorders, liver problems and gallbladder problems.Some more of apples(I think it doesn't matter what color it is as long as it's organic or wash thoroughly off pesticides) benefits:

Heart Protector and Lowers Blood Cholesterol
Apples keeps the cardiovascular system healthy and cuts down cholesterol level in the blood.Studies showed that upon regular apple consumption, the level of LDL(bad) cholesterol is reduced while HDL(good) cholesterol is raised.
It's pectin content(gained mostly from the skin) is a soluble fiber that acts as a cholesterol absorber for elimination, however don't go in search for pectin supplements, mysteriously or maybe a synergistic correlation between other of apple's nutrients , it works effectively only when you get it from the apple. So, take an apple at least per day.

Stabilizes Blood Sugar and Blood Pressure
Good news for diabetics and those who wants an early prevention. Even with it's natural content of sugar, apples does not contribute to a raised of sugar level in the blood, instead it does the opposite. It may be a help in managing sugar levels for those with diabetes,as it stabilizes insulin production.
Studies also proved that apple( even just it's scent) calms the nerves and lowers blood pressure. Find apple- scents for aroma-therapeutic purposes.It may work as well as lavender.

Trims Waistline
Apples(the fruit, not the juice) keeps up the glucose level in blood, making you feel fuller for a longer period of time, thus decreasing your appetite to overeat and helps to burn off fat. The juice makes you hungry. So, if you're on a weight-loss diet, add up on the apples.

Curbs Alzheimer's
Since Apples are high in Vitamin C, which is an antioxidant, they fight off free radicals. In this case of apples. they ward off free radicals attacking brain cells, hence offering protection against premature aging of brain cells and the occurrence or Alzheimer's, which is often related to premature aging of brain cells.

It's content of caffeic or chlorogenic acid blocks cancer formation. It is especially beneficial in preventing lung, colon(thanks to pectin),liver and breast cancer.

Bone health
Here's another wonder of the apple. Somehow it is capable of adding strength to the bone's structure. For post-menopausal ladies, this may be your solution against osteoporosis and brittle bones.

Diminish invading viruses
Apple juice are fatal to viruses. Studies showed that apple juice is effective in subsiding viral infection, along with green tea and grape juice.
