There’s a reason the old adage, “An apple a day keeps the doctor away,” continues to be relevant. There are so many health benefits to eating fruit, and apples are no exception. Apples contain loads of vitamin C, K, potassium and a handful of other minerals, as well as low natural sugars. In addition, snacking on an apple helps us stave off unhealthy cravings, thanks to their high water and fiber content, which makes them more filling and satisfying.
