Modern Medical Marvels

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)."

But unfortunately, an “apple a day” won’t keeprepparttar 131256 doctor away. Polyphenols in ordinary grocery store apples are lost through ripening, storage and processing. Immature green apples, which are too bitter to eat, contain up to 10 times more polyphenols than mature fruit. And in nearly every study,repparttar 131257 test animals are not eating whole apples. They are given dehydrated, highly concentrated powder extracted fromrepparttar 131258 apple skins,repparttar 131259 richest source of these phytochemicals.

The blessing of these natural botanicals are our inheritance as children ofrepparttar 131260 legendary Goddess, Gaia. Her crown jewels are repparttar 131261 fruit ofrepparttar 131262 trees, andrepparttar 131263 blossoms ofrepparttar 131264 rain forest. And her most precious emerald gems-- baby apples-- may one day reverse aging, cure disease, and help her children realize their ultimate perfect health and longevity.
