Friday December 1st is Eat a Red Apple Day! What is so great about a red apple that it has its own day? Many have used the phrase, an apple a day will keep a doctor a way but there are many other benefits to eating a red apple. First you will need to come to Healthy Home Market and pick up an apple or two to make sure you are prepared to celebrate the national Eat a Red Apple Day. We do not want you to miss out on the benefits below.
Apples are rich in important antioxidants. Antioxidants are known to be disease fighting compounds that may help prevent and repair oxidation damage.
You may want to think again before peeling an apple as well. The skin contains the fiber called pectin. Fiber is great for the digestive system.
If you are trying to get a brighter smile then adding an apple to you diet can help. Still use a toothbrush to brush your teeth but by biting and chewing an apple it stimulates the production of saliva in your mouth, reducing tooth decay.
Eating a red apple can also boost your immune system. Since red apples contain an antioxidant called quercetin that may help boost and fortify your immune system.
The body constantly consumes toxins from food and drinks that the liver helps filter out. An apple is one of the best and easiest things you can eat to help detoxify your liver.
These are just some benefits that you can get from eating an apple. There are others such as helping to get a healthier heart, help with bowel movements and may be able to reduce cholesterol.
So the question should be why are you not eating at least 1 apple a day? Celebrate eating a red apple every day!
