An apple a day keeps the doctor away! Apples are a member of the rose family and share the pectin-rich characteristics common to the group. Pectin is a soluble, gel-forming fiber that promotes lower cholesterol levels. It also assists in developing the intestinal muscle’s ability to push waste through the gastrointestinal tract. Apples also contain the anti-allergy flavonoid, quercetin.
