Yes its true According to nutritionists, both apples and apple products are loaded with a variety of nutrients that have been shown to help maintain your health: * Just one apple contains as much soluble fiber as a piece of whole wheat bread or a half cup of raw broccoli. This type of dietary fiber has been shown to both help maintain healthy cholesterol and blood sugar levels. * Apples, apple juice and apple sauce are great sources of both the natural sugar, fructose and water-which provide a natural source of energy to keep you moving and hydrated throughout the day. * At just 80 calories, an apple is a low-calorie, tasty treat for those watching their weight. * Apples and apple products contain between 3 and 8 percent of the Daily Value for potassium. Consuming 3500 milligrams of this essential nutrient each day may help reduce high blood pressure. * Apples are also a good source of the antioxidant vitamin C. This antioxidant aids in guarding the body against damaging free radicals, those nasty compounds that accumulate in our bodies and ultimately wreak havoc on our healthy cells. Apples provide about 10-15% the recommended daily intake (DV) of vitamin C. On top of all of those fabulous nutrition facts, apples are naturally 100% cholesterol, fat, and sodium free-which make this fruit a nutritious nibble for those concerned with their heart's health. "Nutrition scientists have identified other disease fighting compounds, besides vitamin C, in apples." "Just one small fresh apple with the peel (approximately 100 grams) provides the total antioxidant activity equal to 1,500 milligrams of vitamin C," "while it's the peel that's highly concentrated in these phytonutrients, all parts of the apple contribute to its health-protecting benefits,"

Yes I agree, because apple have a lot of health benefits. If cleans your teeth and strengthens your gums, if you have indigestion it could help too. It helps in healing gout and rheumatism. Your cholesterol level will be lowered if you eat 2 apples a day. It has a lot of fiber and it has antiviral properties too that is why it keeps the doctor away and keeps you healthy.
