I recently came across an article signifying the protection an apple gives to the lungs. It stated, that apples help to reduce coughing and phlegm in people with chronic lung problems. In fact, the effect of apple on the lungs is way better than 14 other fruits. Apart form lung protection, it’s also been noted that apples may protect against asthma and lung cancer, on top of the fiber and flavonoids which are so abundant in apples, that’s already known to reduce the risk of heart disease.
Upon reading this, all the more I realized the benefits of apples. As they say: “an apple a day, keeps the doctor away.” If I were to believe everything, then it’s important to have a daily dose of apple. It’s even further noted that you get the full benefit of apples if you eat them with the skin intact, provided it’s washed thoroughly, to get the full fiber content.
