Apples are an easy to access and powerful superfood that contain many types of antioxidants. Antioxidants are compounds that protect your cells from free radicals that damage the brain and body.

Specifically, Apples can protect against memory loss because they contain high levels of quercetin, a type of flavonoid and antioxidant. They also contain polyphenols, another important group of antioxidants from plant compounds. Regularly consuming polyphenols can increase digestion and brain health. They may also as well as protect against heart disease and certain cancers.
