Apples are loaded with vitamin C that boosts immunity, keeping any ailment at bay. They also consist of healthy polyphenol antioxidants that are essential for overall health. In fact, according to a study published in the Journal Planta Medica, animal studies have shown apples and apple juice to be effective in reducing the risk of colon, skin and breast cancers.

Apples may aid weight loss in several ways. They’re also particularly filling due to their high fiber content. ⦁ Good for Your Heart
Apples have been linked to a lower risk of heart disease.
One reason may be that apples contain soluble fiber — the kind that can help lower your blood cholesterol levels.
They also contain polyphenols, which have antioxidant effects. Many of these are concentrated in the peel.
One of these polyphenols is the flavonoid epicatechin, which may lower blood pressure. ⦁ May reduce Risk of Diabetes
Eating apples is linked to a lower risk of type 2 diabetes. This is possibly due to their polyphenol antioxidant content. ⦁ Prebiotic Effects and Promote Good Gut Bacteria
Apples contain pectin, a type of fiber that acts as a prebiotic. This means it feeds the good bacteria in your gut.
Your small intestine doesn’t absorb fiber during digestion. Instead, it goes to your colon, where it can promote the growth of good bacteria. It also turns into other helpful compounds that circulate back through your body
