It’s apple picking season in these parts, and here’s some little-known reasons why apples are so good for you:
1) Whiter & Healthier Teeth (apples produce saliva, which reduces tooth decay by lowering the levels of bacteria);
2) Vitamin C (an apple provides 14% of your daily needs);
3) Weight loss (apple’s antioxidins help in this area);
4) Heart health (apples are associated with a lower risk of death from coronary heart disease and cardiovascular disease).
