As with the old adage, "An Apple a Day Keeps the Doctor Away" the apple is a powerhouse of nutrients with a great source of fiber, vitamin C, heart-healthy potassium, B-complex vitamins, phytonutrients, antioxidants, and many more health and medicinal benefits.
The vitamins present in apples are the key in maintaining red blood cells and keeping the nervous system in good health. The nutrients in apples are unduly present in the skin of the apple, which is the most valuable part of the fruit with respect to its nutrient substance.
