How great is that?!! Apples improve digestion, and also help with some digestive concerns (for example, if you have indigestion or diarrhea – have an apple; if you have constipation – have an apple!).
2. Natural Apple Antioxidants.
Apples are full of antioxidants to fight free radicals and support the heart, immune system, and brain.
