We’ve all heard that an apple a day keeps the doctor away but do you really know what the ‘forbidden fruit’ can do for you?


Here are five ways apples contribute to your health.

Boosts radiance

Creates a homemade “green apple” face mask. Apples help replenish moisture, and the acids smoothen fine lines.


Breathing aid

If you peel apples, you’re advised to stop because the skin of an apple contains an antioxidant called quercetin which may protect your lungs from pollutants.

Rejuvenate your scalp


Bad hair day? No worries, apples have your back. Apple cider vinegar is believed to annihilate the bacteria that contributes to dandruff.

Waistline shrinker

Samantha Heller, RD, advises us to substitute half the butter or oil in cake recipes with unsweetened applesauce. The sauce is fat and cholesterol free.

Even cancer


The phytonutrients and antioxidants in apples may help reduce the risk of developing cancer, hypertension, diabetes, and heart disease.
