Keep the Doctor Away with Ambrosia Apples
Last New Year’s we threw down the challenge of An Ambrosia Apple A Day, since it has been said: “An apple a day keeps the doctor away.”
And though we can certainly appreciate that eating Ambrosia apples alone is not a miracle cure for any serious health issues, we thought we’d explore the myriad of ways this old adage is true by highlighting the health benefits of Ambrosia apples.
Some of the benefits include:
Nutrition: With 25 grams of carbs and 4 grams of fibre, Ambrosia apples are one of the most nutritious foods you can eat.
Weight Loss: Ambrosia apples, like most apples, contain a high concentrate of fibre and water – two qualities that make them ideal to incorporate into a healthy weight loss program.
Heart Health: Ambrosia apples, with proper diet and exercise, have been associated with a lower risk of heart disease, including blood pressure and stroke.
Brain Health: Recent research links apple juice to the prevention of memory loss.
Good Gut Health: the pectin in apples acts as a prebiotic, which feeds the good bacteria in your gut.
Diabetes: Eating Ambrosia apples, and other fruits and vegetables regularly, can help lower your risk of type 2 diabetes.
Cancer Prevention: Research is proving that the antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties in apples may be linked to cancer prevention.
