Fortunately, there is a good reason for the old adage, “an apple a day keeps the doctor away”. 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.

They also contain soluble fibre; which helps to reduce cholesterol, makes us feel full and aids in digestion for gut health.
