Apples are filled with powerful antioxidants called phenolics, which fight against disease and neutralize free radicals. Don’t peel — the peel contains three quarters of the fibre and most of the antioxidants.
Apples are also high in soluble and insoluble fibre, including pectin. The fibre will assist with weight management, relieving constipation. A healthy digestion system lowers the risk of colon cancer.
