Via Huffington Post, Kerri-Ann Jennings, Associate Nutrition Editor for EatingWell Magazine, says:

“Packing in quite a bit of soluble fiber (4 grams per medium apple) for a modest amount of calories (95) makes apples a filling, sweet snack.

Plus, a medium apple counts as 1 cup of fruit, so after eating one you’re well on your way to meeting your daily fruit quota (around 2 cups for adults on a 2,000-calorie diet).

They also are a good source of immune-boosting vitamin C (providing 14 percent of the daily value).”

Natural News say:

“A new study… has revealed yet another amazing health benefit gained by eating apples. According to research out of the University of Michigan Health System, eating apples and apple products reduces oxidative stress in the body, boosts heart function and health, and lowers blood pressure and cholesterol levels.”
