Apple nutrition is an important element in the fight against today`s top killers!

Apple nutrition is concentrated in the skin with up to 45% of it`s most important elements being found there. So get the "skin..ny" on apples and health and discover that an apple a day may well keep the doctor away.

The skin on apples are there defense against natures elements and all things that might other wise bring harm to the fruit. The fruit defends itself with the skin and it is these elements of defense that are also good for your health and your defense against some of today`s top killers like cancer and heart disease.

An average sized apple with skin can contain around 145 milligrams of flavonoids, while one without the skin has only around 95 milligrams. Quercetin, one of apples most important nutritional components, is found only in the skin. This flavanoid is a natural anti-inflammatory and like vitamin C fights the damage to cells that lead to cancer.

Today many people around the world get only 8 - 12 grams of the recommended 40 grams of daily fiber. Apples have both soluble and non-soluble fiber. The American Cancer Society recommends a diet high in fiber to help prevent cancers of the colon and others. A study in Europe found that pectin, ( a special kind of soluble fiber found in apples), can remove toxic metals from the body such as lead, mercury and others.

Insoluble fiber which is found in the skin will help alleviate constipation and aid in weight control. Soluble fiber found inside the apple forms into a gel which collects bad cholesterol and other toxins from the body and moves it through the intestines for elimination.

Pectin which is special type of soluble fiber not only moves cholesterol and other toxins from the body, but also helps the liver to produce less cholesterol helping reduce the chance of heart attack. Pectin also slows down the digestion which reduces blood sugar levels and surges in insulin which will help reduce conditions of diabetes.
