Right back since the beginning of time, it has been widely accepted that we should eat apples as often as possible. But if we were to truly think about it, it’s not always that clear what apples give to us, other than the great taste. We’re going to take a look at apples and identify some little known secrets that surround this versatile and easy to eat fruit.
One of the biggest revelations in recent times is the concept that apples can help in the fight against Alzheimer’s. This is a truly devastating disease, and science has shown us that apples and the juice they contain can really help to stave it off. In a special experiment mice were given apple juice and the animals then showed more alertness when dealing with maze problems. There were also higher levels of the neurotransmitter acetylcholine, which showed scientists that apple juice is therefore a huge factor in the delaying of the disease.
