Why You Should Never Peel an Apple

Apples are a standout food for health protection and we can thank their peels for most of their disease-busting prowess.

Apple peels are rich in insoluble fiber that aids in appetite control and feeds the good bacteria in our colons. But what really sets the peel apart from its fleshy component is its stunning array of beneficial polyphenol compounds. Apple peels provide one of the most comprehensive varieties of polyphenols of any fruit and are uniquely high in the oh-so-powerful anti-inflammatory chemical, quercetin. Whether your goals are weight control, cancer protection, or heart health – apples with the peel are a winning food.
