Apples are full of health benefits.
Just 1 medium-sized apple contains about 4 grams of fiber.
Apples are full of a fibre called pectin. Pectin is classed as a soluble, ferment-able and viscous fiber, a combination that gives apples a huge list of health benefits.
Other benefits include Heart Disease, Stroke Prevention and Colon Cancer Prevention.
In recent tests when healthy adults consumed one medium-sized apple approximately 15 minutes before a meal, their caloric intake at that meal decreased by an average 15%.
