Nearly five years ago, I noticed that shortly before catching a cold, I had broken from my usual habit of eating an apple a day. I wondered if that “old adage” was right.
Well, now we’ve got scientific proof to confirm my experience:
Studies have revealed that pectin, a special kind of fiber found in apples, may help boost levels of immune-supportive proteins. So crunching one a day could very well help keep the doctor away this cold season.
Gonna make sure to have an apple with my lunch today.
