Do you eat apples for health reasons or you just love its taste?

As the adage goes, "an apple a day keeps the doctor away". True, according to medical studies because it was found out that apples do contain flavonoids which reduce the risk of heart-related diseases. I do eat apples because I love its taste and that's the favorite fruit of my daughter. How about you, why do you eat apples?

i like to eat apples, but not everyday. always eating apple they say can make you constipated, i don't know how true, but one time when my son was having a diarrhea, his doctor told me to give him apples and banana so that his stool will be hard then, meaning, it make you constipated then..well, i don't know..

I am sure that bananas can constipate but I don't know about apples. I'll try to check on it. So far, it's bananas that makes me constipate. Thanks.

I ate apples because I like more the taste especially the green apples. I used to eat one apple everyday before but right now I have no time to buy because of my daily work but whenever I dropped by in a shop where it is available I buy it.

I am not much of a fruit eater and really for no reason other than I think about sweets first. I eat apples for their sweet taste. I do prefer to peel them and not eat the skin if I am at home. Like to cut them in half or quarter them. We always have bananas in the house and I will often eat one.

You are like my daughter. She doesn't eat apples when it's not peeled and wants to eat sliced apples. It's her favorite fruit.

i neighter like the taste of the apple nor love it. but for me i have it as its the only fruit which for me is easy to carry rest all are soft which might get crampled due to pressure while travelling in public trnasport.Also one can just bite it and doesnt needs to be cut with knife. It has added advantages for health which is also a different aspect.....

I love to eat apples for both the taste and the health benefits. We try to eat organic apples as often as possible because they have so much flavor compared to regular apples. I started eating organic apples everyday because my physician has repeatedly told me that he considers organic apples to be a "superfood". He claims since he started eatin an apple a day, he hasn't been sick in over three years! Being around sick people all day and not getting sick from them, that's pretty impressive statement... impressive enough for me to get my family to start eating organic apples.

That's really great. Being sick is the most dreaded. We better eat apples and be healthy.

for me it's both, I love the taste and also for healthy lifestyle. I agree with you apple are not only delicious, it also contain certain substances that will help you to maintain healthy body. Apple is a rich source of dietary fiber which aids in proper elimination of body waste materials.

Hi Dorisday.... Honestly, when I eat fruits I don't think of the benefits I'll get from eating them. I just eat them if I feel like eating them. Same is true for apples. I love eating apples especially if they're green. I like adding a little salt to the apple. If you ask me why I eat them, I would probably answer one thing: because I love eating them. teehee.

Before I was not conscious of its health benefits too. But when I learned about it, well it became a bonus for me to get health benefits and at the same time love eating it.

I must admit I do it for both reasons. We get a great variety of apple types in our stores but I prefer the English ruset type or gala red apples. I love the taste of apples, almost addicted to them! At the same time I am ell aware that they have many healthy properties and are good for the lungs. Great post!
