12 Health Benefits of Eating an Apple a Day

Protects the heart


Apples protect your heart in several ways. They contain fiber and polyphenols that help in the reduction of cholesterol levels in your blood. Remember that your blood is pumped well when there is no strain in the blood vessels. The oxidation ability of soluble fiber and polyphenols moderates the pressure.

They act on accumulated LDL cholesterol. A study published in a highly respected Journal of Nutrition shows that high intake of flavonoid epicatechin, a polyphenol, reduces stroke by 20%, and this is good for your health.
