We all are familiar with the saying 'An apple a day keeps the doctor away' but what is it in an apple that keeps the doctor away?

Apples are pretty light on vitamins and minerals but have a lot of phytochecmicals, quercetin and flavonoids

Phytochemicals are chemicals produced by plants. These are the chemicals that plants use to defend themselves against disease and they have been shown to be beneficial to the human body

Diets high in flavonoids may contribute to your heart & healthy blood pressure & provide protection from cancer, osteoporosis, cataracts & strokes

Quercetin May block the growth of cancer cells, suppress the development of tumours and may help protect against allergies
