A healthy, balanced diet is essential to good health. Philosopher Ludwig Feuerbach claimed this in the 19th century, and today hundreds of scientists and nutritionists from around the world confirm it. Sentence “We are what we eatIt still describes the prevailing thought of thousands of doctors who know very well how food affects not only the body, but also energy and psychological processes. Therefore, improving nutrition can improve life. And it will take very little to do so. How many times have we heard her sayAn apple a day keeps the doctor awaySimple food yet rich in essential nutrients for our health. Definitely, set the day A team of scientists from New Zealand, there are apples and apples. In a recent study published in the journal NutrientsI The researchers compared the effects of eating red-fleshed apples — which are rich in anthocyanins — with white apples.. The results are amazing.

The benefits depend on the color

According to experts, the composition of flavonoids in apples affects cancer risk and alters immune pathways such as nuclear factor kappa B (NF-κB) and tumor necrosis factor-alpha (TNF-α) levels. Therefore polyphenol intake can influence the occurrence and progression of inflammatory diseases such as Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis (IBD or MICI). Consuming flavonoid-rich apples also improves intestinal bacteria, which increases the number of beneficial microbes present in the colon microbiome.

Gut dysbacteriosis, a condition of microbial imbalance caused by an overgrowth of “bad” bacteria in the gut, can increase the risk of cancer and affect response to various treatments, including several anti-cancer agents. The study demonstrates the immune benefits of consuming red apples rich in cyanidin 3-glucoside, 4-p-coumaryl quinic acid, phloridzin, quercetin 3-arabinoside, quercetin 3-galactoside, and phloridzin xyloside. Eating one red apple a day for two weeks is enough to elicit above average immune responses.
