DRIED APPLES HELP LOWER CHOLESTEROL

AN APPLE A DAY

An article in the Good Housekeeping magazine gives the top five reasons to eat (at least) one apple a day.

1.  They are a slow food- which means they’re full of fiber and require a lot of chewing, so they give your body time to register that it’s full.

2.  They help you breathe easy-the kids of women who ate the most apples while pregnant were less likely to wheeze or develop asthma by the age of 5. The fruit may also protect the lungs of adults.

3.  They zap cholesterol-Pectin and Pholyphenols in apples prevent the oxidation of LDL cholesterol. DON’T toss the peel because the skin has two to six times the antioxidant compounds as the flesh.

4.  They fight cancer-People who eat more than one a day lower their risk for several cancers (oral, esophageal, colon, breast, ovarian, prostate and others) by 9 to 42%, Italian researchers found.

5.  They make you smarter- They boost the production of acetylcholine, which is a chemical that transmits messages between nerve cells. Apples are now thought to keep your brain sharp as you age, enhance memory, and potentially lessen, the odds of getting Alzheimer’s disease, suggests one recent animal study from the University of Massachusetts at Lowell.
