6 Surprising health benefits of apples, according to the nutritionist

If you want to eat to lower the risk of disease and prevent infection, eating anti-inflammatory foods is an incredible tool at your disposal. We’re happy to report that apples fit the bill. 3. Apples fight inflammation “Apples are high in vitamin C, which is important for the immune system for reducing inflammation,” says Bellette, emphasizing that vitamin C is also key for many other bodily functions.

2. Apples help your microbiome “Apples contain phytochemicals, which are a potent antioxidant nutrient, and have been shown to reduce the risk of chronic diseases, such as cardiovascular disease,” says Filipa Bellette, Ph.D., Clinical Nutritionist, co-founder of virtual health practice Chris & Filly Functional Medicine in Tasmania, Australia.

Bellette loves the positive benefits apples produce for your gut. “Apple peel contains pectin, which is the prebiotic potential for promoting the growth of anti-inflammatory commensal bacteria in the colon,” she says, citing this research. 1. Apples help decrease your risk of cardiovascular disease

If you’re hoping to shed some pounds, incorporating fiber-filled apples into your diet on the regular is a smart move. (Thanks to their fiber they also help keep you regular, too.) “Studies demonstrate that apples can assist in weight loss, due to the polyphenols in apples which promote anti-obesity effects by scavenging free radicals and regulating gene expression,” says Bellette. Potassium is a mineral that is high in apples also – potassium is essential for cardiovascular health. Apples are also packed with antioxidant nutrients, such as quercetin, catechin, phloridzin, chlorogenic acid. 5. Apples may assist you in your weight loss efforts

Another reason Graham sings the praises of apples? They may help keep LDL or the unhealthy kind of cholesterol in check. A 2019 study in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition may change the old adage to: ‘Two apples a day keeps the doctor away.’ This study showed that people who ate two apples daily were able to reduce their LDL cholesterol,” comments Graham. Aligning with Bellette’s discussion of apples being a potent food for heart health, Graham continues, “Reducing LDL cholesterol is important in the fight against heart disease. The benefits are likely due to the fiber in apples and perhaps also due to the polyphenols, which are plant compounds.” FYI: This benefit results from eating the whole fruit, not from drinking apple juice. 4.
