Apples

Apples are a great food for many reasons including the ability to  reduce the risk or heart disease, certain cancers, high blood pressure,  and type-2 diabetes. They also benefit the respiratory system by  preventing lung cancer and asthma.   By consuming apples your body gets fiber, potassium and antioxidants, such as Vitamin C and polyphenols. Studies show that the real benefit comes from the synergistic interaction between these ingredients.

To take best advantage of apples for your health, eat a wide variety and make sure that you eat the peel, which contains several times more antioxidants than the inside. As they say, eat an apple a day.
