12 Health Benefits of Eating an Apple a Day

Promotes Your Gut Health


Destroying your gut means that you expose it to bad substances that might harm you, and you do not want that. Apples have pectin, which is a fiber and acts as a prebiotic to feed the gut bacteria. Feeding promotes the proliferation of good bacteria.

These bacteria are not absorbed in the small intestine and instead goes to the colon. An article published in PubMed, a database in the National Institute of Health shows that the good bacteria convert to some beneficial compounds that later on circulate in your body.
