Fruit of the month

APPLES 

On a fresh, whole-fruit basis, apples are the second most-consumed fruit in the U.S. (Bananas rank as number one)


Among the Top 10 varieties of apples consumed in the United States are Gala, Fuji, and Golden Delicious.

Apples are particularly beneficial for those who suffer from constipation or impactions.

Apple pectin has also been shown to bind with radioactive residues and toxic heavy metals such as lead and mercury and safely remove them from the body.


One more benefit of apple pectin is that it has the ability to limit the amount of fat our adipose cells can absorb by building a barrier that naturally controls the buildup of fat in the body which makes it a great choice for any weight loss program. 


Apples have wonderful anti-inflammatory properties and provide significant results for those suffering with autoimmune disorders such as Addison’s disease, Cardiomyopathy, Celiac disease, Lupus, and Multiple Sclerosis.


Apples contain pectin which is a gel-like fiber that can prevent the putrefaction of protein in the digestive tract. Pectin works like an intestinal broom to clean and sweep out debris from the colon.


  • Eating two apples or more a day can aid in the prevention of colon, liver, breast, prostate, and lung cancer and can also dramatically decrease the risk of a stroke.

Apples are especially rich in phytonutrients and antioxidants.


They have been shown to be beneficial for neuro-degenerative problems such as Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s disease as well as for bronchial problems such as asthma.


  • Apples are a crunchy, sweet, and satisfying snack that have immune boosting and disease preventing properties.

They are a highly alkaline fruit that have the ability to quench both an immediate and cellular-level thirst.


Apples are also an amazing detoxifier and contain both malic and tartaric acids that help remove impurities from the liver and gallbladder.
