There could well be an element of truth in the saying "an apple a day keeps the doctor away"... here's why. Apples are a good source of vitamin C, vitamin A, some B vitamins, fibre, potassium and antioxidants. Apples contain malic acid which is good for digestion, pain reduction, energy production, liver function and detoxification. They also contain quercetin which acts as a natural anti-histamine, making them great for reducing allergic reactions.
So don't overlook the humble apple as a great source of nutrition. For best health benefits eat fresh, organic apples.
