Health benefits 

-Apples contain a high level of antioxidants which have been shown to ward off many ailmentsapple healthy teeth such as cardiovascular disease and asthma. Antioxidants assist the body in the fight against free radical damage from bad food choices and other external influences such as pollution, smoking or alcohol. Without the consumption of foods containing antioxidant properties the body would be susceptible to many diseases and illnesses. Therefore, antioxidants are a great immune system booster.

Our modern Western diets are relatively low in polyphenols and can be found in many fruits and vegetables and also chocolate (cocoa) and green tea.
