DO NOT Throw Apple Peel: Here's why, the reasons will EXCITE YOU!

in food •  2 years ago 

It is well known that apple is healthy as well, but you did not know what the heaviest benefits of this fruit are.

These are the reasons why you should never throw apple peel.

1)There are more vitamins in the peel

One medium sized apple, together with the peel, contains 8.4 milligrams of vitamin C and vitamin A, and peeled apples contain only 6.4 milligrams of vitamin C.

2)There are more fibers in the peel

Medium sized apple contains 4.4 grams of fiber. If you throw the peel, you'll end up with just 2.1 grams of fiber. That's why we should eat unpeeled apples.

3)Quercetin helps memory

This antioxidant battles the damage of brain tissue associated with Alzheimer's disease or other similar diseases.

4)An apple, together with its peel, prevents weight gain

Ursic acid can be found in apple skin. This acid is a compound that is essential for the fight against obesity. Ursic acid burns calories and thus reduces the risk of overweight.

5)Apple peel can even prevent cancer

The study, conducted in 2007 at the University of Cornelles, concluded that compounds called terpenes, which are in the apple cider, are able to prevent or kill existing cancer cells in laboratory conditions. These compounds are particularly effective against colorectal cancer, liver and breast cancer.
