The latest research has been all over TV, talk radio and the Internet–so I won’t keep you in suspense.
It’s a fruit, one that I’ve been singing the praises of for years. I eat one every day.
Apples. Here’s what the December 17, 2013 edition of Science News reported: “Prescribing an apple a day to all adults aged 50 and over would prevent or delay around 8,500 vascular deaths such as heart attacks and strokes every year in the U.K.”
It was a study done in England, but the study applies to people all over the world….
Researchers said that an apple a day does appear to “keep the doctor away,” and is similar to providing the healthful cardiovascular benefits of giving statin drugs to everyone over 50. But without the side effect.
More good news…
Recent research shows that apples are one of the best fruits for regaining youth and to help reduce bodyfat. How great is that?…
According to the May/June ’12 Life Extension, a recent study “using 600 milligrams per day [of apple polyphenols] followed patients for 16 weeks. It demonstrated a 9.4 square-inch loss of visceral fat in the supplemented patients…. Meanwhile, placebo patients gained 3.3 square inches.”
Visceral fat is the most dangerous kind–hard on your heart. It collects around the organs and is a key contributor to belly fat–that rock-hard bloat…
The same article discussed the longevity benefits of apples: “In the last year alone, scientists from three different laboratories have published studies that demonstrate how polyphenol molecules derived from apples extend life span in various species by as much as 12 percent….
“One polyphenol, phloridzin, which is heavily concentrated in the skin of the apple, also potently suppresses several processes leading to glycation, another contributor to aging.”
So an apple a day can keep not only the doctor away, but aging, belly fat and premature death at bay. Yay!
