APPLE

in farms •  last year 

Apples are round fruits with red or green skin and has a whitish part inside. The apple tree originated in Central Asia, where its wild ancestor, Malus sieversii, is still found today. Apples have been grown for thousands of years in Asia and Europe, and were brought to North America by European colonists.

Eating this fruit every day can help you lose weight. Apples contain non-digestible compounds that promote the growth of good bacteria in your gut associated with weight loss.

Apples may help reduce the risk of cancer, cardiovascular disease and diabetes. Apples are one of the healthiest foods a person can eat. They are high in fiber and vitamin C, and they are also low in calories.

It's impossible to overlook that eating three apples a day boosts your caloric intake. A medium-sized apple with its skin has about 95 calories, which means eating three of these fruits would increase your caloric intake by nearly 300 calories.

But the truth is, green apples are packed with more nutrients, and so have more health benefits than their red counterparts. Apple, the name itself reminds us of the old proverb – “An apple a day keeps the doctor away.” This yummy fruit is relished all over the world for its amazing taste and health benefits. Apple is not just consumed raw, but also finds a place in a wide variety of recipes, both sweet and savory. Do not forget the delicious apple pie!

Now, we are aware of the health benefits of apple. So let us focus on the other side of the coin. Some side effects of taking apples includes:

Heart Disease

Harmful Effects Of Apple Seeds

Allergic Reaction

Increase In Blood Sugar Level

Weight Gain

Weakens Tooth Enamel

Damages Skin

Weakens Bones

Apple cider can also aggravate symptoms like swelling, hives and breathing difficulty as well as indigestion and heartburn.
Apple seeds are poisonous by nature as they contain cyanide. Regular consumption of apple seeds can lead to the release of cyanide in the stomach during digestion. Consumption of one cup of apple seeds can even lead to death!

Apple juice is generally considered a healthy drink, but it too has its own set of side effects when consumed in excess. Excessive consumption of apple juice can lead to diarrhea. Besides, people following an apple juice diet often suffer from headaches, dizziness and tiredness.
Apple cider vinegar is a natural supplement and is believed to have many potential health benefits. It is advisable to dilute it in water or drink it through a straw to avoid contact with the teeth. Rinse your mouth with fresh water to remove any traces of acid from the teeth once you are done drinking apple cider vinegar.

Don’t let these side effects scare you off apples! These red colored fruits should definitely be a part of your daily diet. The only thing you need to be careful about is the amount of apples you are eating. The saying is ‘an apple a day’ not ‘5 apples a day’!
