What are Apple Polyphenols?

Apples are loaded with powerful polyphenols like chlorogenic acid, cyanidin, quercetin, phloridzin, catechins, and procyanidins. Together, they're known as "apple polyphenols." As the Welsh proverb says, "An apple a day keeps the doctor away!" And it’s no joke, my friend!


Fructose in Apples

Sure, apples have fructose. With about 14.3 grams of carbs per 100 grams, half of that is fructose. A typical apple weighs around 250 grams, packing about 17.5 grams of fructose. But don’t worry! Eating 1.5 to 2 apples a day for three weeks can reduce triglycerides by 21%, boost vitamin C by 34%, increase bifidobacteria by 15%, and decrease harmful clostridium bacteria. This is thanks to the pectin and polyphenols in apples!


Research Findings

Let's look at some kickass research findings on apple polyphenols:

  • Blood Sugar Control: Consuming 600 mg of apple polyphenols for 12 weeks suppressed blood sugar spikes 30 minutes after eating. Procyanidins might be blocking sugar absorption in the intestines.

  • Visceral Fat Reduction: Apple polyphenols taken for 12 weeks reduced visceral fat and increased adiponectin levels. Amazing, right?

  • Liver Health: They inhibit pancreatic lipase, block fat absorption in the intestines, suppress fat synthesis enzymes in the liver, and promote enzymes involved in β-oxidation. This means less visceral fat accumulation!

  • Skin Whitening: Procyanidins can inhibit melanin production, giving you that radiant, fair skin!

Consumption Methods

To harness the full power of apple polyphenols, you can take supplements like "Applephenon." Apple pectin supplements are also available. If you prefer eating apples, 1 to 1.5 apples a day is enough. Unripe or green apples have 4 to 6 times more polyphenols and less fructose, making them the healthier choice.


Practical Tips

Worried about pesticides on apple skins? Don’t be! Washing apples with baking soda water will remove any pesticide residues. Soak apples in baking soda water for about a minute, then rinse thoroughly. No pesticide is a match for you!


 

Experience the mighty power of apple polyphenols! Whether through supplements or whole apples, make them a part of your daily routine and feel the difference! Now's the time, get on it!
