2. Reduce Cases of Asthma

Asthma is caused by inflammation of the airways, and asthma symptoms are usually triggered by allergies, cold air or infection. Researchers in the UK found that adults reduced their risk of asthma by up to 33 percent by eating at least two apples each week.3‘Dietary Antioxidants and Asthma in Adults: Population-based Case-control Study.’Shaheen SO;Sterne JA;Thompson RL;Songhurst CE;Margetts BM;Burney PG; pubmed.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/11734430/

Being rich in antioxidants means apples can help protect the lungs from oxidative damage by acting as an anti-inflammatory. Apple skin also contains the pigment flavonoid quercetin, which contributes to controlling the immune system and aids in the reduction of inflammation.
