Apples are one of the “hottest” phytochemical – rich foods that it’s recommended to consume more of.
Phytochemicals are found in fruits, vegetables, grains, legumes, seeds, licorice root, soy, and teas.
Remember, these phytochemicals, which give plants their color, flavor, and smell have significant health benefits, including the reduced risk of heart disease and cancer.
The phytochemical in apples and apple juice is called Quercetin. In a study in Finland, they found that the more apples consumed, the less the risk of lung cancer and other malignancies, including skin and colon cancer.
