Benefits of Apple for Health

The apple helps control certain diseases like diabetes, improves digestion, contributing to a better use of nutrients and is indicated for those who want to lose weight because it is high in fiber and low in calories.
In addition the apple is rich in antioxidants, water and vitamins, and so the apple has the following health benefits:
  1. Decreased bad cholesterol;
  2. Control diabetes because it has low glycemic index;
  3. It helps to lose weight, because it has few and has water and fibers that diminish the appetite;
  4. It improves constipation, because soluble fibers detoxify the digestive tract;
  5. Relieve gastritis pains and heal gastric ulcers because the fibers form a gel that protects the mucosa of the stomach.
An easy way to consume this fruit is to eat the apple in its natural form, add the apple in the fruit salad or make a juice. Here's a good recipe for: Apple juice for weight loss.

How to use the apple to enjoy its benefits

Apple is a very nutritious fruit that can be used in a variety of ways:
  1. Cooked or baked apple - useful mainly in case of gastrointestinal problems like vomiting or diarrhea
  2. Raw apple with peel - helps to decrease the appetite because it has many fibers and regulates the intestine
  3. Raw apple without peel - suitable for attaching the intestine
  4. Apple juice - helps to moisturize, regulate the trapped intestine and decrease appetite because it has a fiber called pectin that stays in the stomach longer by increasing satiety
  5. Dehydrated apple - great for kids as it has a crisper texture that can be used as a substitute for potato chips, for example. Simply put the apple in the oven at low temperature, about 20 minutes until crispy
  6. Apple tea - improves digestion and relieves constipation. The apple peel can also be added in less tasty teas like rock-break tea or St. John's wort to give a more pleasant flavor
Eating 1 apple a day at breakfast, such as dessert or snacks is a great way to take full advantage of its benefits, ensuring more health. 1 medium apple has about 130 g and 74 calories.
