Apples

Apples Everyday!

 Have you ever heard, “An apple a-day keeps the doctor away”? Why? Well, the active ingredient, malic acid, which softens the liver and gallbladder stones, making them easier to pass through the bile ducts. Apples and apple juice are an excellent source of malic acid.

There are other sources, some of which are:

  • Cherries
  • Apricots
  • Cranberries
  • Peaches
  • Rhubarb
  • Plums
  • Tomatoes
  • Pears
  • Pineapple
  • Gooseberries
  • Raspberries
  • Un-distilled, unfiltered apple cider vinegar

Additional nutrients in apples include:

  • Boron and phlordzin (a flavonoid)
  • Quercetin (a flavonoid)
  • Naringin (a flavonoid)
  • Fiber
  • Pectin
  • Galacturonic acid

The benefits of these nutrients are:

  • Protection of bones
  • Lowers risk of Alzheimer’s disease
  • Reduces risk of lung cancer
  • May prevent colon or liver cancer
  • Lowers levels of LDL cholesterol
  • And, helps manage diabetes.

My recommendation for best results is to take a bite of your apple, chew until it is applesauce in your mouth (20-30 times) and let it drizzle down your throat. By doing this, you have increased all of the digestive juices and stimulated the peristalsis muscle action to maximize benefits!

Every season is apple season!

  • Apple sauce
  • Baked spiced apples
  • Apple smoothies
  • Apple juice
  • Dried apple chips with cinnamon

It’s as easy as chopping them and adding to a salad. Spinach, kale, lettuce, or cabbage.
