Does an apple a day actually keep the doctor away?

Apples are amazing. Those shiny red and green delights are virtual medicinal miracles. For generations, folks have trumpeted the virtues of this fruit, saying, “An apple a day keeps the doctor away.”

Is that true? Pretty much.

Here are 15 of the most commonly recognized potential benefits of eating plenty of apples:

  1. better heart health
  2. boosted immunities
  3. decreased risk of diabetes
  4. fewer gallstones
  5. healthier brain
  6. hunger satisfaction
  7. improved cancer protection
  8. increased fiber for intestinal health
  9. less cataract risk
  10. lower risk of stroke
  11. more consistent blood sugar levels
  12. reduced cholesterol levels
  13. slower mental aging
  14. whiter smile
  15. vitamin boost

To clarify, doctors seldom come to us anymore. As sure as God made little green apples, house calls are a distant memory in most parts. But apples may indeed help to keep us from requiring extra visits to emergency rooms, walk-in clinics, or doctors’ offices – at least, for everyday illnesses.

How ‘bout them apples and good health?
