Phytochemicals in baby apple skins may berepparttar closest thing to “magic” to come out ofrepparttar 131253 labs since penicillin. The list of health conditions that these botanical compounds improve or prevent is truly impressive. Apple phytochemicals are showing promising test results in 3 ofrepparttar 131254 5 leading disease killers of Americans, including seven types of cancer, heart disease, and diabetes.

Apple polyphenols are 6 times more powerful than vitamin C against human cancer cells in lab tests. They may prevent asthma attacks, inhibit dental carries, lower cholesterol, and stabilize insulin response. Recently, scientists from Cornell University proposed that extracts from apples “could reducerepparttar 131255 risk of neurodegenerative disease such as AD (Alzheimer’s Disease)."
