Notes

Apples contain pectin – a soluble fibre that helps cleanse the intestines. They help keep your cholesterol down and also to maintain blood sugar levels. Apples are easily digestible and contain lots of water to keep you well hydrated. Apples keep you energised, so one a day should give you an extra energy boost for all the loving your doing!
