Apples for fitness for personal training

APPLES REALLY ARE GOOD FOR YOU I’ve been preaching the gospel of the apple to my clients at Fitness with Jeff for years.
Eating fresh apples is always good for you, but to get the full nutritional benefits associated with eating apples you should eat at least one fresh apple every day. The average U.S. consumer eats about 19 pounds of fresh apples a year — about one apple per week.
WHOLE-BODY HEALTH BENEFITSLower blood cholesterol, improved bowel function, reduced risk of stroke, prostate cancer, type II diabetes and asthma.The disease-fighting profile of apples provides a multitude of health benefits, including a potential decreased risk of cancer and heart disease. Several recent studies suggest apples may provide a "whole-body" health benefit.
A number of components in apples, most notably fiber and phytonutrients have been found in studies to lower blood cholesterol and improve bowel function, and may be associated with a reduced risk of ischemic heart disease, stroke, prostate cancer, type II diabetes and asthma. Preliminary research from Finland indicates diets with the highest intake of apple phytonutrients were associated with a 46 percent reduction in the incidence of lung cancer. Findings indicate that two apples a day or 12 ounces of 100% apple juice reduced the damaging effects of the “bad” LDL cholesterol.The moral of the story: an apple a day keeps the doctor away.
