Health Benefits of Apples

Procyanidins, a kind of flavonoid found in apples, have potent antioxidant properties

and may reduce low-density lipids (LDL or "bad" cholesterol).  The abundant

polyphenols found in apples may lessen your risk of cardiovascular disease by lowering

cholesterol. The high antioxidant content of apples may help to prevent neurodegenerative

diseases like Parkinson's and Alzheimer's and preserve brain function. 

Additionally, apple fiber and polyphenols may improve your gut's bacteria.
