Apples Can Make You Feel Better!
We all know that apples are literally packed with fresh nutrients, but you’d be surprised at how they can actually make people feel better!
Eating the peel with the apple is the only way to make sure that you get all of the necessary nutrients. Apples are a great source of malic acid – an organic compound that is found in many fruits, such as cranberries and grapes.
Malic acid is beneficial to the human body and many scientific studies have been conducted to show that it is especially beneficial to people with fibromyalgia.
These same studies have shown that malic acid is especially effective when it is mixed with additional foods and nutrients. For example, malic acid and magnesium mixed together is especially effective when treating fibromyalgia. This is because both have been shown to improve fibromyalgia symptoms on their own, so when mixed together, they are especially effective.
If you want to add even more special nutrients to the mix, you could add more foods to your meal such as cheeses and nuts. This will turn your apple snack into an apple meal.
There are other natural ways that you can obtain malic acid besides just eating an apple. You can make fresh apple juice with natural apples, and you’ll still get good levels of malic acid. Or, you can eat raw cranberries which can also be turned into a juice. Blending natural apple with cranberry juice is another excellent source.
You can drink apple cider, or make your own tart beverage that includes the following ingredients: a tablespoon organic apple cider vinegar, about eight ounces of water, and a couple teaspoons of honey.
You should drink this ‘custom’ beverage at least three times a day for your body to react best to its health benefits. You can also add Epsom salts and it will have the exact same effect as if you were to combine malic acid with magnesium as mentioned above.
Malic acid specifically helps fibromyalgia because with malic acid, muscle tissues will receive more oxygen and improve your energy. Malic acid can also prevent the breakdown of muscle tissue. One reason why fibromyalgia patients feel so much chronic and physical pain is directly related to the breakdown of muscle tissues.
Supplying oxygen to the muscles means that the muscles can not only prevent breaking down, but can recover when exercising. This is why it’s recommended for those who suffer with fibromyalgia to embark on a diet that includes apples and a physical exercise program. Even thirty minutes of exercise a day will be very beneficial and you’ll notice changes.
We all know the classic adage that ‘an apple a day keeps the doctor away.’
While many old adages have been discounted these days, this one remains true to scientific study.
And what could be more delicious than an apple to snack on!
