How do you like dem apples?

Apples are superfoods, plain and simple and now have been linked to lowering obesity rates.

“What determines the balance of bacteria in our colon is the food we consume. We know that, in general, apples are a good source of non-digestible compounds but there are differences in varieties. The non-digestible compounds in the Granny Smith apples actually changed the proportions of fecal bacteria from obese mice to be similar to that of lean mice”
Food scientist Giuliana Noratto, September 2014. 

All apples were good but the Granny Smith came out on top. 

The beneficial non-digestible fibres in fruits, vegetables, nuts, seeds, wholegrains and legumes, help remove our waste, clean the liver, burn fat, and deliver stunning benefits to our entire digestive system – including the all-important bacterial colony in our gut.
