Two apples per day can prevent hardening of the arteries

Research at the National Institute of Fruit Science in Tsukuba, Japan, shows that eating about 400 grams of apples a day can actually reduce the amount of neutral fat in the blood.

The research team had 14 volunteer volunteers aged 30 to 57 eating two apples a day for three weeks. The team members then tested the participants' blood and found that the average fat content was reduced by 21% on average.

The results of the study showed that eating apples increased the vitamin C content in the blood, about 34%, and the number of probiotics in the participants also increased.
