Did you know that apples eaten with the peel contain a high amount of quercetin, an antioxidant from the flavonoid family? Quercetin is said to have antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties which appear to be beneficial on several levels for health, especially for the heart. Apples also contain fibers, including pectin, a soluble fiber that swells in the stomach and slows the passage of food through the intestine, promoting fullness while allowing better blood sugar control, which is beneficial for people with diabetes. As for insoluble fibers, they promote good intestinal regularity.
