Have you ever heard the saying, “An apple a day keeps the doctor away”? … The apple is a fruit with multiple health benefits.
It is rich in water and pectin, a soluble fiber that swells during the digestive process, which enhances satiety. The acidity of the apple reduces the absorption of fats and sugars during digestion to assist in eliminating toxins.
