Grab an Apple
Have you been enjoying the autumn bounty of delicious apples? Apples are not only
known for their exceptional health benefits, but they are also extremely valuable to oral health. An apple certainly won’t replace your toothbrush, but biting and chewing an apple stimulates the production of saliva in your mouth, helping reduce tooth decay by lowering the levels of bacteria.
Apples are jam packed with vitamins and nutrients, like:
Boron: supports a healthy brain and strong teeth and bones
Vitamin C: boosts immunity and helps keep your gums healthy
Phytonutrients: including Vitamin A and E and beta-carotene can help reduce the risk of heart disease, diabetes, asthma and cancers
Pectin: soluble fiber that helps maintain your digestive system and lowers blood pressure, glucose levels and LDL (bad cholesterol)
Plus, if you are a family on the go, they provide an ideal way to get a quick energy pickup without spills or container cleanup!
