Benefits of eating apples
- Reduces cholesterol and blood pressure: The soluble fibers contained in apples prevent cholesterol from accumulating in the lining of blood vessel walls. This reduces the risk of developing atherosclerosis and cardiovascular disease.
- Strengthens the immune system: According to the results of an animal study, a diet rich in soluble fiber helps convert immune cells into anti-inflammatory cells. Another study found that the same diet protected mice from influenza.
- Good for diabetics: The dietitian recommends that people with type 2 diabetes eat a lot of apples and not believe the rumors that apples are harmful to diabetics. Soluble fiber slows the absorption of sugar into the bloodstream and has a positive effect on blood sugar levels.
- Prevents cancer: There is no sure way to prevent cancer, but apples can play a role in this direction. According to the American specialist, eating apples reduces the risk of certain types of cancer, due to their high content of antioxidants, which limit the growth of cancer cells.
- Helps lose weight: A diet rich in vegetables and fruits can help you maintain a healthy weight and shed extra pounds. The fiber in apples slows digestion and keeps us feeling full for longer, making us less likely to feel hungry and overeat.
