We all know “Apple a day keeps doctor away!”
But new study affirms the reason behind this statement…
Middle-aged participants who started eating an apple a day saw a dramatic 40 percent drop in their oxidized LDL, which is a particularly dangerous, artery-hardening form of “bad” cholesterol. In the small, month-long study, participants who took pills containing the same amount of polyphenol antioxidants contained in apples also saw a decrease, though significantly smaller.
Further studies are needed to discover why eating whole apples maximizes the heart-happy benefits.
