One medium apple contains 4 grams of fiber which is great for weight loss, they also contain soluble fiber which can help lower your blood cholesterol levels and acts as a prebiotic, which means it feeds the good bacteria in your gut.

Want more? Scientists believe that the antioxidant and anti-inflammatory effects found in apples may potentially give them cancer-preventive effects, as well as help protect your lungs from oxidative damage. YOU WANT EVEN MORE? Well, apples are freaking delicious!

Pro-tip: To get the most out of apples, leave the skin on - it contains half of the fiber!

Another pro-tip, because we like you: Thanks to the pectin found in apples, they can serve as a thickener in any jam and also as a natural sweetener! That’s why it’s a good idea to add a little bit of apple to any jam you make.
