Tip #7: Apples
So tasty and easy to find and prepare, apples are a welcome addition to your daily healthy diet. There are so many different health benefits, like eating a apple stimulates the saliva in your mouth, reducing tooth decay by lowering bacteria levels. They contain many antioxidants which help the body in all sorts of ways. For example, red apples contain an antioxidant called quercetin, which boosts and fortifies the immune system. This is great for when you are stressed out.
Apples are the perfect match for mid-morning or afternoon snack. They also contain a high concentration of pectin, a fiber that regulates the digestive system, as well as lowering blood pressure, glucose, and cholesterol levels. The phrase “an apple a day, keeps the doctor away” has much truth to it!
So, eat apples in the morning, mid-morning, lunchtime, and mid-afternoon. However, avoid this fruit in the evening because it can increase stomach acid, which may lead to discomfort once you lie down. While pectin has many health benefits some people find it hard to digest, especially at night. Furthermore, you might experience sore indigestion if you eat them too late in the day.
