The benefits and harms of apples

Nutrition experts point out that people who do not suffer from diabetes and obesity eat 2-4 apples a day, after the main meals, avoiding oxygen starvation and cardiovascular disease.

Dr. Zalina Guseva, an endocrinologist, says, “The best feature of apples is that they contain the highest iron content. 

Iron is necessary for blood production and maintaining the necessary number of red blood cells, which transport oxygen and nourish the tissues and organs of the body. 

Therefore, apples are useful in preventing hunger. 

Oxygen deficiency and lack of oxygen supply, and this are very useful for those who suffer from bronchopulmonary diseases and cardiovascular diseases.”

She adds that the apple peel contains anti-inflammatory phytochemicals. It also contains pectin, which helps improve digestion. 

The vitamins and minerals in apples help keep the skin, nails, and hair in good condition. 

Apple seeds also contain a high percentage of iodine. But it is not recommended to eat more than 3-4 seeds per day because they also contain toxic hydrocyanide acid.

The expert notes that apples are "a high-calorie food because of the fructose sugar, which after being recycled in the liver turns into sucrose. T

Therefore, it is not recommended for people who suffer from obesity and diabetes to eat excessively."

Dr. Alexey Kalanchev, a Russian nutrition expert, warns: It is better to refrain from consuming fruit juices because they have a high glycemic index (the relative indicator of the effect of carbohydrates in changing the level of sugar in the blood). 

Therefore, everyone who does not like to eat the whole apple should eat the mashed apple pulp. Also, grilled apples are very useful for those who suffer from chronic gastritis.

He says, "There is no absolute allergy to apples. There are types of apples that everyone can eat without fear. 

But sour apples cause an exacerbation of chronic gastritis, and negatively affect tooth enamel. 

It is also recommended to eat 2-4 apples a day after the main meals, and not on an empty stomach."
