Health Benefits

Are apples good for you? Yes!

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.[1] Apples also contain fibre, vitamin C and potassium, all essential for good health.

Rich in antioxidants

Neutralise free-radical damage

  • Science shows that apples contain strong antioxidants, including quercetin, catechin, phloridzin and chlorogenic acid.(2) These antioxidants neutralise free-radicals, which are highly-reactive unstable cells that cause damage to your body.
  • Free radical damage is the result of normal metabolic processes, as well as external factors such as cigarette smoking, alcohol consumption, air pollution and exposure to industrial chemicals.[2]
  • Free radical damage is associated with inflammatory, heart and neurological diseases.(2)
