The expert also noted that apples are rich in vitamins A, C, B1, B2, PP, and E, magnesium, phosphorus, iodine, iron, selenium, potassium, calcium, and zinc.
Apples contain a lot of vitamins and nutrients, but eating them in large quantities can harm the body. This was stated by the famous nutritionist Nadezhda Tsapkina.
The specialist also noted that apples are rich in vitamins A, C, B1, B2, PP, and E, magnesium, phosphorus, iodine, iron, selenium, potassium, calcium, and zinc. The fruit reduces the likelihood of cancer, improves memory, strengthens the immune system, and improves vascular elasticity.
In addition, due to B vitamins (riboflavin, thiamine, and vitamin B-6), the health of the nervous system is maintained.
“However, eating apples in large quantities can damage tooth enamel and cause tooth decay. Cyanide is a poison contained in the seeds of apples, so it is better to eat them without seeds,” warned Tsapkina.
According to the nutritionist, the human body is quite capable of coping with a small amount of cyanide, but exceeding the dose can be very dangerous for the body. It is recommended to eat no more than two medium-sized apples a day and to give preference to green fruits.
“Green apples are more suitable for people with allergic reactions and weight control,” concluded Tsapkina. Earlier, Rimma Moisenko, Ph.D. in medicine and a well-known nutritionist, said that in order not to overload digestion, apples should be eaten in the morning, at least no later than noon.
The daily allowance in late summer and early fall, when apples from the new harvest go on sale, is up to 300 grams.
