 Facts: Five Reasons To Eat An Apple Every Day
  • Your Diet - Apples are the perfect, portable snack: great tasting, energy-boosting, and free of fat.
  • Your Heart - Research confirms it! The antioxidant phytonutrients found in apples help fight the damaging effects of LDL (bad) cholesterol.
  • Your Digestion - Just one apple provides as much dietary fiber as a serving of bran cereal. (That's about one-fifth of the recommended daily intake of fiber.)
  • Your Lungs - An apple a day strengthens lung function and can lower the incidence of lung cancer, as well.
  • Your Bones - Apples contain the essential trace element, boron, which has been shown to strengthen bones - a good defense agianst osteoporosis.
