New Year’s Resolution: An Ambrosia Apple A Day
Like most of the world, we’re sure you are happy to see the last of 2020!
If you’ve made any New Year’s resolutions, we wish you the best in keeping them. According to statistics, 60 percent of resolutions fail by the third week of January, and 80 percent fail by the second week of February. Experts suggest that the best way to keep a resolution is to turn it into a habit, which takes about two months.
Consistently, for those who make them — around 30% of us — the top resolutions include eating healthily and losing weight.
An apple a day really can keep the doctor away! One apple every day can help build muscles, keeps blood sugar levels under control, lowers cholesterol, and improves your heart health! Apples are also great for those trying to shed that 2020 weight. Ambrosia apples are high in fibre, which helps stop hunger pangs, and their natural sugar curbs sweet cravings.
If you are planning on something a little more serious, like a cleanse, as part of your New Year’s resolution, then Ambrosia apples can help with that as well. Apples and apple juice are recommended for consumption prior to a liver cleanse because the malic acid in the juice helps to open the ducts that run through the liver, allowing the liver to more easily be flushed. Consider making your own Ambrosia apple juice CLICK HERE for the pre-cleanse.
Ambrosia apples are also rich in antioxidants. Not only do they have vitamins C and A but they’re also packed with flavonoids and other phytochemicals like Quercetin. This makes apples a powerful antioxidant source – much more powerful than the sum of the individual vitamins and nutrients. But, scientists warn, these antioxidants can be compromised during processing. Therefore, eating a fresh, raw apple is the best way to get the most antioxidants out of the apple. Ambrosia apples are slow to brown, crispy to bite into, and naturally sweet, making them the ideal apple for eating raw.
An Ambrosia apple a day is a great option for a New Year’s Resolution, and eating Ambrosia apples every day is one health habit that’s a joy to adopt, and easy to keep.
Whatever your resolution for 2021 — or even if you don’t have any — Happy New Year from all of us!
