An Apple A Day”: More Than Just A Saying!

Have An Apple A Day This October

Grab an apple for your health during National Apple Month.

We’ve all heard the saying, “An apple a day keeps the doctor away” which is an English proverb.  It most likely has stayed with us and is familiar to us because apples have long been considered to be the most curative of all the fruits.  These crisp fruits have actually been linked to improving our health.

Recent studies have shown that apple consumption helps people maintain a healthy weight and reduce their risks for some kinds of cancer, type 2 diabetes, and heart disease. Apples have also been shown to improve the symptoms of people living with Alzheimer’s disease.

Scientist are now investigating how apples could help decrease the risk for degenerative diseases, improve our immune systems, and improve our gut health.  Apples are not only rich in pectin, but they also provide dietary fiber, contain potassium, Vitamin C and beta carotenes.

Raw apples are said to promote dental health.

Clearly, then, it’s a healthy choice to grab an apple and perhaps shake it up with the numerous varieties now available we have so many choices.

Apples originated in Western Asia but are now grown in temperate climates throughout the world where there are warm days and cool nights. The different varieties of apples range in the thousands with each having its own unique color, shape, texture and flavor.

Because apples are in season in the fall, October has been named National Apple Month. This commemoration got its start as a week in 1904, and has expanded to an entire month over the last century because apples are such a great way to get a serving of fruit and boost our health.
