Apple is the most popular and delicious fruit​ on the planet, and the joy of biting into a bright, red, juicy apple to quench your thirst, cannot be compared! It also satisfies your sweet tooth, all while boosting our health in a major way. 

Evidence suggests that a diet high in fruits and vegetables may decrease the risk of chronic diseases, such as cardiovascular disease and cancer, and phytochemicals.Epidemiological studies have linked the consumption of apples with reduced risk of some cancers, cardiovascular disease, asthma, and diabetes.

Apples contain a variety of phytochemicals, including quercetin, catechin, phloridzin and chlorogenic acid, all of which are
strong antioxidants. The potential health benefits of apples are numerous. 

All of us have definitely heard the famous saying ‘an apple a day keeps the doctor away’. This is true only when it’s eaten at a proper time and overeating is avoided.

The proper time of eating a fruit is at least two hours prior or after the meals. 

Ideally, a fruit is best utilised when eaten on an empty stomach. 

A fruit should not be eaten with beverages such as coffee, tea or milk.
