There’s an old adage that says “an apple a day keeps the doctor away.” But a new study found it’s not quite right. You should actually try to eat TWO apples a day.
Researchers at the University of Reading in England had people eat two large apples a day for two months.
And by the end, the average person had lowered their blood pressure…cut their heart attack risk…and reduced their cholesterol by about 4%.
It worked for men and women. But for some reason, women saw an even bigger effect.
Juice doesn’t count though. Another group drank two glasses of apple juice a day and didn’t see the same effects. Probably because it doesn’t have as many nutrients or fiber. Two large apples have about 25% of the fiber you need in a day.
