Have you heard the saying “an apple a day keeps the doctor away”? There’s truth behind it; a multitude of clinical studies have proven the health benefits of apples, especially those with a red skin. Apples are a rich source of flavonoids, which are phytonutrients associated with a reduced risk of cancer, heart disease and asthma. Flavonoids, found in the skin of the apple, are also believed to be important for brain health. Apples also contain fibre, vitamin C and potassium, all essential for good health.
