4 good reasons to eat apples
apples benefits

Top tonus

Apple contains ursolic acid, a compound that stimulates hormones in muscle to maintain muscle mass. Rich in potassium and vitamin C, it also offers a good dose of energy ... but does not replace sport!

Fat eater

Its richness of insoluble fiber decreases the absorption of cholesterol and lipids (fats) in the intestines. In addition, it also provides a good content of soluble fibers which facilitates transit and cleanses the digestive system. But, if you prefer it in juice, bye-bye fibers. . .


The apple reduces appetite because its pectins form a kind of gel that fills the stomach. It requires an effort of chewing, which also contributes to satiety. And, thanks to its low GI, it does not lead to a spike in blood sugar (blood sugar level).

With or without skin?

Preferably with, but organically, because it is the fruit that receives the most chemical treatments: 35 on average! Peeled, it partly loses its nutritional advantages. Ditto if cooked: 25 to 30% fewer vitamins.
