A Common Food With Uncommon Benefits
A lot of fiber and chewing satisfaction for a small amount of calories makes apples a good choice for many women who would like to lose weight. A Brazilian study suggests that women who ate an apple half an hour before a meal lose 33% more weight than those who didn’t. In addition to losing inches, apples can help you gain vitamins and minerals, such as anti-oxidants A and C, along with iron and calcium.
Apples are so common that we overlook their health and beauty benefits. Did you know that they can help to control insulin levels by releasing sugar slowly into the bloodstream? Apple pectin can also help to reduce cholesterol levels by lowering insulin.
Some studies suggest that apples cleanse and purify the body, helping to remove toxins resulting in prettier skin. Traditional advice tells women to eat at least 2 cups of fresh fruit and vegetables a day to have healthy, radiant skin—why not make apples a regular part of your regimen?
