Apples’ anti-oxidant properties are due to the phytochemical elements that they contain, most abundant in the skin. Apples are particularly recommended for diets for preventing cardiovascular disease, degenerative diseases, and cancer. Perhaps the best-known property of apples is their intestinal regulatory action. If you eat it raw and with the skin, it is useful for treating constipation, and if the apple is peeled, grated, and blackened, it has the opposite effect on our bodies, becoming astringent.
