See Red, Fight Cancer
The beautiful color of red fruits and vegetables comes from a compound called Lycopene. Emerging as the most powerful antioxidant of the carotenoid family, Lycopene, and a flavonoid called anthocyanin which lends reddish to purple tints to produce, may help reduce the risk of some types of cancers.
Enjoying red fruits and vegetables can also help with:
- Heart health
- Memory function
- Urinary tract health
Apples can help reduce the risk of many diseases, including cancer, asthma and heart disease. Apples are a great source of fiber, too. In fact, one large apple supplies 5 grams of fiber, which is about 20% of the recommended daily intake.
