Subject: Why an apple a day?
We’ve all heard the age-old proverb, “an apple a day keeps the doctor away,” but do you know why apples come so highly recommended?
Well, because they are packed with tasty nutrients!
See for yourself what an Organic Apple a day can do for you:
Vitamin C: This powerful natural antioxidant is great for blocking some of the damage caused by free radicals. It is also known to boost the body’s resistance to infections.
B-Complex (riboflavin, thiamin, and vitamin B-6): These vitamins are responsible for keeping your red blood cells and the nervous system in tiptop health.
Dietary Fiber: A diet high in fiber helps to prevent the development of certain diseases, and it has been shown to help prevent the amount of bad cholesterol in the blood from rising.
Phytonutrients: These nutrients help protect the body from the harmful effects of free radicals.
Select Apple’s that are about the size of your fist. Some apples are very large for a person’s body size and can contain too much sugar at once.
Why Choose Organic? Organic apples help to reduce your intake of toxic pesticides and herbicides that may otherwise be used on non-organic varieties. Pesticides & herbicides may seem innocent enough, but many conventionally grown fruits and vegetables are sprayed with Glyphosate, which can accumulate in our bodies and lead to many health problems. You may also be exposed to Glyphosate through your environment, and we can absorb it into our bodies through our skin. Glyphosate is used in a weed killer called Round-up. Round up is used widely in communities across the United States, it is sprayed in parks, schools, gardens, parking lots. Inquire & ask your School boards and City council members to stop spraying this chemical in your community if they are still using it. Avoid spraying Roundup in your home garden and landscaping as well.
Do yourself a favor and treat yourself to an organic apple a day!
