Fruit # 5 Apples


A study has shown that an apple a day leads to a 28% reduced risk of diabetes.

Apples are high in fiber and low in calories, providing a sufficient energy level and vitamin C, potassium, and antioxidants.

Apples are also a rich source of polyphenols, an important group of antioxidants. Antioxidants are compounds that protect your cells from free radicals — harmful molecules that contribute to the development of chronic conditions, like heart disease and cancer.

They may also help improve heart health and lower cholesterol.

Apples contain pectin, a type of fiber that acts as a prebiotic. This means it feeds your gut microbiota, which is the good bacteria in your gut.

One medium 200-gram apple offers the following nutrients

  • Calories: 104

  • Carbs: 28 grams

  • Fiber: 5 grams

  • Vitamin C: 10% of the Daily Value (DV)

  • Copper: 6% of the DV

  • Potassium: 5% of the DV

  • Vitamin K: 4% of the DV
