One 5 ounce apple provides more than 3 grams of fiber (insoluble and soluble) equating to 10% of the daily fiber recommended by experts.
An apples soluble fiber, pectin, reduces the amount of LDL cholesterol produced in the liver.
Apples insoluble fiber works like bran, latching on to LDL cholesterol in the digestive tract and removing it from the body.
Pectin grabs toxins like the heavy metals lead and mercury, and ushers them out of the body.
Quercitin, found in the peal of the apple acts as an antioxidant, when blended with the vitamin C in the apple this combination acts to boost the bodies immune defenses.
Apples sweat taste comes from fructose which when combined with the fiber from the apple breaks down slowly helping to keep blood sugar levels stable.
