To Your Health - What can 1 Apple a day give you?
"Eating fruits and vegetables is better than taking a vitamin pill," according to Rui Hai Liu, assistant professor of food science. His team found that vitamin C is only responsible for a small portion of the antioxidant activity. Instead, almost all of this activity in apples is from phytochemicals.
Eating 100 grams of fresh apple with skins (equals about 1 small apple - researched and added by Paul Gunn) provided the total antioxidant activity equal to 1,500 milligrams of vitamin C.
