Information About Apple Nutrition and Health Benefits including Apple Nutritional Values Charts

An apple is a delicious, crispy fruit that is full of nutrition, provides natural energy, is sodium free, and is low in calories!

An average apple contains 95 calories.

Apples are a good source of flavonoids, which have antioxidant properties.

It is believed that most of this compound in apples is found in the peel. So, eating apples with the peel still on is a more healthy way to eat an apple.

Antioxidants are believed to help prevent and repair oxidative stress, a process that damages body cells and has been linked to the development of diseases such as cancer, heart disease and Alzheimer's disease.







Apples are also a good source of a natural energy, containing natural carbohydrate, Vitamin C and potassium.

Eating an apple (especially eating the apple with the peel on) is a very good way to increase dietary fibre.

An average size apple is said to contain more fibre than a bowl of oatmeal or most cold cereals! 

Eighty percent of the fibre in apples is soluble fibre, which is believed to help in the reduction of blood cholesterol levels. There is about 5 grams of fibre contained in one apple.


Apple Nutrition Facts

Pectin, a soluble fibre found in apples, has been shown to help with health issues that can bring about heart disease. Pectin builds up in the digestive tract, helping to lower cholesterol levels and decreasing the risk of heart attack and stroke.

Boron, an essential element that helps make bones healthy and strong, is also present in apples. Boron helps to prevent osteoporosis.
