STAY FIT: 5 reasons for an apple a day
Your Diet — Apples are the perfect, portable snack: great tasting, energy-boosting, and free of fat.
Your Heart — Research confirms it! The antioxidant phytonutrients found in apples help fight the damaging effects of LDL (bad) cholesterol.
Your Digestion — Just one apple provides as much dietary fiber as a serving of bran cereal. (That’s about one-fifth of the recommended daily intake of fibre.)
Your Lungs — An apple a day strengthens lung function and can lower the incidence of lung cancer, as well.
Your Bones — Apples contain the essential trace element, boron, which has been shown to strengthen bones — a good defence against osteoporosis.
