From here, we will talk about the star fruit of this recipe, apples. Apple is a sweet pomaceous fruit. It originates in Central Asia. Its wild ancestor is the Malus sieversii which can still be found. According to Wikipedia, apples have been “grown for thousands of years in Asia and Europe, and are brought to North America by European colonists. Apples have religious and mythological significance in many cultures, including Norse, Greek, and European Christian traditions.”
When we talk about health benefits, apples are never out from the list. Did you know that biting and chewing an apple can help you get a whiter and healthier teeth? According to Reader’s Digest, “biting and chewing an apple stimulates the production of saliva in your mouth, reducing tooth decay by lowering the levels of bacteria.” They can also aid you in controlling your weight. Apples are very rich in fiber which manages your weight and improves your health. I attest to this, people. I always eat apple before every meal and it has helped me a lot! Lastly, apples boost your immune system. “Red apples contain an antioxidant called quercetin. Recent studies have found that quercetin can help boost and fortify your immune system, especially when you're stressed out.”
