    AN APPLE A DAY…

    Apples are practically synonymous with the beginning of fall in the south. But can an apple a day really keep the doctor away? While we can’t guarantee they will, there are some undeniable health benefits of apples that make a good case for themselves. These are just a few reasons you should embrace the abundance of one of nature’s perfect fruits this fall!

    • Fight diseases such as cancer, hypertension, diabetes and heart disease with the phytonutrients and antioxidants found in apples.

    • Increase neurological health and potentially prevent the development of neurological disorders thanks in part to the antioxidant “quercetin.” Quercetin is also known to boost your immune system!

    • Maintain and improve digestive health due to the great source of fiber provided by the fruit. Calms digestive issues and improves issues such as IBS.

    • Detoxify your liver by adding this (and other fruits) to your diet. Eating apples regularly aids the body in releasing toxins in the liver.

    • Help fight cataracts with fruits, like apples, because of their richness in important antioxidants.
