Luckily, apples are extremely nutritious and versatile. They can be incorporated into savory and sweet dishes and used as a component of practically every meal. Apples are also extremely rich in antioxidants, flavonoids, and dietary fiber. The phytonutrients and antioxidants in apples may help reduce the risk of developing many health complications. Also, if you are trying to lose weight apples may be able to aid in weight loss! They are particularly filling due to their high fiber content and have a prebiotic effect that may promote good gut bacteria.
