Most people are familiar with the saying “An apple a day keeps the doctor away” about this fruit, which is often referred to as “the queen of fruits”. This rich, fresh and juicy fruit is associated with numerous health benefits, including weight loss, improved lung function, lower risk of heart disease and cancer. But, even though it is healthy, this fruit has some secrets of its own.
That is why it is important to learn everything about the fruit that you eat. Apples are a real dietary food. The big amounts of water and fiber that apples contain means that you will feel saturated for longer, regardless of the low level of calories that they contain (each apple has about 95 calories). But apples also have another big advantage: they contain a special acid in their peal which is called ursolic acid and has proven to be very effective in melting fat, increasing calorie loss and reduces the risk of obesity. According to apple expert Rowan Jacobsen, in USA there only ever existed 16 thousand different varieties of apples, but today there are about 2,450 species.
