Good Fibre
Pectin, or apple fiber, helps to regulate digestion and improve the quality of the bacteria present in the gut.

Natural Anti-Cholesterol Properties
Scientific studies have proven that eating two or three apples a day can play an important role in lowering the cholesterol level. After two months, total cholesterol levels had dropped by between 5% and 15%, with an especially large reduction in ‘bad’ cholesterol.

A Weapon in the Battle Against Diabetes
The combined action of pectin and antioxidants helps to reduce the risk of type 2 diabetes, or ‘fat’ diabetes.

Eating apples can also help to regulate your body’s assimilation of sugars and balance the blood sugar, especially after meals.
