Apples can help prevent constipation, improve lung function, & lower the risk of heart disease.
A compound known as quercetin is found in apples, which are broken down by the body & helps prevent chronic inflammation that results in the thickening of the arteries, blood clotting in the arteries etc... Thus decreasing the risk of heart disease.
Research published in the Journal Frontiers in Microbiology.
The researchers tested all of the parts of the apple including the skin, stem, flesh, peel, seeds & calyx, which is the fluffy bit at the bottom where the flower used to be.
They found that if you ate a whole 240g apple, seeds & all, you'd ingesting about 100 million bactaria. Most of us don't actually eat the core, so our intake would fall to a mere 10 million bacteria.
Although still in it's infancy, research around gut microbiome is showing that the richer & more diverse the community of microbes you have in your gut, the lower your risk of disease & allergies may be.
The study also found that the ammount of bactaria in organic and non-organic apples was the same, however, the variety was vastly different.
The organic apples were found to have much higher diversity in their bacterial community & a significantly higher level of a specific microbe called methylobacterium. This microbe is known to enhance strawberry-flavoured compounds & could be part of the reason why diehard organic apple eaters claim they taste better than the standard variety.
So, the old wives tale an apple a day keeps the doctors away might be true after all, thanks to the apple being such a great home to millions of delicious bacteria.
