The apple has always been a highly symbolic fruit in history. It is the third most consumed fruit in the world, after citrus fruits and bananas. They can protect our heart, provide our body with fiber and improves our overall health. The truth is, that this deep red, juicy fruit from the tree of knowledge of Good and Evil can only benefit us. A small apple (100 g) contains about 47 calories and numerous nutrients for our body. All the above make apples a real treasure, which should definitely have a place in our daily lives.
How to choose the best apples
They are fruits that basically ripen from the end of the summer, up to the end of fall – without this meaning that we can’ t find them almost all year round. Look for hard apples with a bright color (depending on the variety), without bruises, rips or tears on the skin. Also make sure to wash them very well before eating.

Why it’s good for you
The old saying “an apple a day keeps the doctor away” has now been verified for many years by scientific studies conducted on this quite miraculous fruit. The combination of fiber and the combined action of magnesium, potassium, vitamin C and fructose, plus several polyphenols (which have a remarkable antioxidant action) means that eating apples (three per day) can lower high cholesterol. Apples also have a regulatory action on blood glucose, are beneficial for the respiratory system, and especially for the digestive system, by regulating intestinal transit. They are also excellent appetite suppressants. The malic acid present in apples is good for urolithiasis.
