5 Reasons Eating Organic Apples Keeps You Healthy

By Michelle Perrone

Fall is almost here and you know what that means: it's time to start picking one of the healthiest fruits, the apple. But what makes this fruit so special?  Here are 5 reasons to start eating apples this fall season. 

Note:  When buying apples, make sure they are organic. Conventional apples are on top of the Dirty Dozen list and contain over 25 different pesticides. 

1. Cancer prevention

We have all heard the saying, an apple a day keeps the doctor away.  And according to the American Institute of Cancer research the saying is true. They recently added this superfood to their list of “Foods That Fight Cancer.”  Apples contain a high level of Vitamin C and fiber, which protects your body against disease, including cancer. They also contain antioxidants called quercein and triterpenoids, which may slow down the growth of cancer cells.

2. Cleanse and Detox

Apples are a simple yet effective, not to mention a low cost, way to rid the body of unwanted toxins and excessive heat that have been stored up during the summer months. By eating 2-3 organic apples a day, your liver, arguably the most important organ in your body, stays healthy and clean. In fact, in most of the detoxes and cleanses out there, you will always find apples as one of the ingredients.  

3. Healthier, Whiter Teeth

Do you want a safe way to whiten your teeth?  Eat an apple. The apple removes bacteria and stains from your teeth by acting as a scrubbing brush. Apples also contain a chemical found in some teeth whiteners called malic acid. Eat an apple a day to keep your teeth happy and healthy.

4. Boost Your Immune System

Apples are jam packed with vital nutrients that keep your immune system healthy and strong during the cold and flu season. One of my favorite morning routines is to take a shot of apple cider vinegar. I have personally noticed a difference in the way I feel, and I rarely get sick.

5. Brain Health

Apples may lower your risk of Alzheimer’s and also increases your memory. This is due to the production of acetylcholine. One of the best ways to get the benefits of the acetylcholine is to juice your apples.
