    Therapeutic Uses of Apple

    • Aids maintain teeth healthily and white

    While apples won’t replace your toothbrush, swallowing and chewing an apple promotes saliva production in the mouth, which prevents bacteria growth and tooth damage.

     

    • Digestion

    The bulk of the fiber is found in the skin of the apple. Fiber helps you minimize hunger pains and cravings by making you feel fuller for longer. Additionally, fiber helps to maintain the health of the liver, which in turn helps to maintain the health of the bones. Due to its digestive benefits, fiber is also good for diabetics.

     

    • Healthy Heart

    High soluble fiber consumption has been associated in recent studies with a slower buildup of cholesterol-rich plaque in the arteries. Quercetin and epicatechin, two phenolic chemicals found in apple skin, help maintain normal blood flow by preventing cholesterol buildup on artery walls.

     

    • Conquers constipation and diarrhea

    Due to their high fiber content, apples can aid in the relief of both constipation and diarrhea. Apple pectin fiber can either absorb extra water from the stool to slow down the bowels or draw it out of your colon to keep things moving.

     

    • Manage Irritable Bowel Syndrome

    Constipation, bloating, stomach soreness, and diarrhea are symptoms of irritable bowel syndrome. Apple is a good option for treating the symptoms because of its high fiber content.

     

    • Strengthens immunity

    Quercetin is an antioxidant that is abundant in red apples. Recent research has shown that quercetin helps strengthen and support the immune system, especially during times of stress. One of the most unexpected advantages of eating apples for health is this.

     

    • Control Acne Vulgaris

    Our skin is shielded by apigenin, genistein, and other polyphenols from sun damage, UV ray-induced inflammation, and dark/white patches. Apple can aid in the treatment of acne vulgaris since they regulate sebum production as well.

    Side Effects of Apple

    • Bloating

    Apples contain a lot of pectins, a type of fiber that can make you feel bloated. Eating apples will probably make you feel more bloated than eating other fruits because the malic acid also leads to bloating. It would be wise to stay away from apples if your stomach is sensitive.

     

    • Gas

    Malic acid, a substance found in apples, is what causes the gas that results from eating them. Although some people are more susceptible to it than others, if you feel bloated after eating apples, you probably have a malic acid sensitivity.

     

    • Apple Allergy

    Apples can cause allergies in certain people. It’s advisable to steer clear of apples entirely if you’re one of them. There’s a risk that eating apples will make your throat itch or your lips swell, even if you don’t have a full-blown allergy.
