An apple a day…

Researchers suggest that the strong antioxidant flavonoid compounds found in

apples-quercetin, play a key role by preventing “bad” LDL

cholesterol from oxidizing and triggering a series of events that result in the

buildup of plaque in arteries, as well as inhibiting inflammation and even

preventing cancer. Apples just happen to be rich in pectin, a form of soluble

fiber known to help lower cholesterol and even chelate heavy metals from the

body. Apples also provide a decent amount of vitamin C which is another

antioxidant. Make mine organic.
