We were taught early on that “an apple a day keeps the doctor away”…and now they may even help keep extra weight away.
New research suggests that all apples are not created equal. While all contain nutrition heavy-hitters like prebiotics, fiber and polyphenols, of the 7 types of apples studied, the tart Granny Smith contained the most of these good-for-you compounds.
Granny Smith apples were found to balance out friendly bacteria in the gut, which may increase satiety & keep weight in check. Yeah, Granny!
