They say, ‘an apple a day keeps the doctor away.’ Turns out, it stands true for weight gain and hunger pangs as well. Apples are one of the greatest gifts of nature, and boast of multiple health benefits that can prevent various illnesses.
Apples are rich in fibre, making sure you stay satiated for a longer period of time, and don’t end up feeling hungry. The fibre also makes sure that your digestion stays on track, and you never have to face the struggles of constipation. What’s more, the antioxidants in apples can slow down the rate at which our body absorbs sugar, which can be extremely beneficial for diabetics.
