We at Home thought you might like to know what the benefits are for apples :)

Benefits of Apples

Apples & Vitamins

  • Apples are rich in A, B, C and K vitamins as well as calcium, magnesium, phosphorus, potassium, pectin and dietary fiber. What a powerhouse of vitamins in a simple apple!

Apples for Acid Reflux

Acid reflux occurs when stomach acid rises up into the esophagus and because of the alkalizing minerals calcium, magnesium and potassium contained in apples it is believed that these minerals neutralize this acid by creating an alkaline environment in the stomach and thereby relieving the symptom's of acid reflux.

Reducing the Risk of Cardiovascular Disease.

Pectin is a soluble dietary fiber found in apples and helps to reduce risk of cardiovascular disease.

The pectin binds to cholesterol in the gastrointestinal tract and slows glucose absorption by trapping carbohydrates which also helps people with diabetes.

Help Reduce the Risk of Cancer

Antioxidant flavonoids found in apples can limit or prevent oxidation caused by free radicals and help protect the body's tissues against oxidative stress and associated pathologies such as cancers.

So far it appears that "an apple a day can definitely keep the Doctor away."


Apples, including the skin, are rich in fiber, and are an easy and tasty way to boost the fiber content of your diet and alleviate constipation.

Benefits of Apples for sleeping

Vitamin C Helps you to sleep better because it helps manage your blood sugar, and apples are a great source of Vitamin C.

Stomach Ailments

Apples are a natural detoxifier and will modify the whole intestine by recharging and reactivating the bacteria within it.

So...... a peeled, finely grated raw apple that has stood for 5 minutes in order to oxidize  (that is by turning a brownish color), is the best thing one could take for a stomach ailment.

Teeth Health

Apples contain malic and tartaric acid, and eating an apple will strengthen the gum tissue, polish the teeth and revive digestion.

Make sure you are eating organic apples and if you are not sure, wash it carefully in a biodegradable chemical-free produce wash.
