benefits of eating apples..

i love to eat apples..
What makes apples so great?

1. Get whiter and healthier teeth.
An apple won’t replace your toothbrush, but biting and chewing an apple stimulates 
the production of saliva in your mouth, reducing tooth 
decay by lowering the levels of bacteria.

2. Reduce cholesterol.
The soluble fibre found in apples binds with fats in the intestine, 
which translates into lower cholesterol levels and a healthier you.

3. Get a healthier heart.
An extensive body of research has linked high soluble fibre intake 
with a slower buildup of cholesterol-rich plaque in your arteries. 
The phenolic compound found in apple skins also prevents the cholesterol that 
gets into your system from solidifying on your artery walls. 
When plaque builds inside your arteries, it reduces blood flow to your heart, 
leading to coronary artery disease.

. 4. Control your weight.
Many health problems are associated with being overweight, 
among them heart disease, stroke, high blood pressure, type 2 diabetes and sleep apnea. 
To manage your weight and improve your overall health, 
doctors recommend a diet rich in fibre.Foods high in fibre will fill you up 
without costing you too many calories.

5. Decrease your risk of diabetes
Women who eat at least one apple a day are 28 percent less likely to develop diabetes
 than those who don’t eat apples. Apples are loaded with soluble fibre, 
the key to blunting blood sugar swings.
