No, that picture isn’t here to show you a new cocktail drink. It’s green tea infused with apples. And here’s why you should give it a try.

Say Goodbye to Heart Diseases and Cancer

 

Green tea and apples should be your new favorite snack combo, or at least drink and eat these once a day. Why? While we all know that green tea and apples have their own specific characteristics for fending off chronic ailments, there is new research to reinforce the health benefits. 

Polyphenols are the Key

I don’t want to sound very scientific and technical, but think of polyphenols as a component found in both green tea and apples that give these foods their health benefits. According to the Institute of Food Research, polyphenols that are found naturally in fruits and vegetables help reduce the risk of chronic diseases in people who eat them the most.

How does it Work?

Linking polyphenols to the health benefits haven’t really been studied in detail, until now. The researchers were able to find how VEGF, and its role in forming blood vessels, is related to polyphenols. Low levels of polyphenols from green tea and apple, in the body, is connected to an improper functioning of the VEGF.

There are already health benefits to just drinking green tea and eating apples separately, but now that researchers have found out why these two superfoods can reduce the risk of heart diseases, cancer, and other related chronic diseases, what are you waiting for?

This video explains why apples are considered one of the super food, including the history of apples and all of it’s nutritional value, including fiber.

 

Still not convinced? Head on down to the grocery and start eating apples once or twice daily and drink green tea, and then see for yourself how much you’ve changed after a month or so. 😀

  • Great post! Well designed web page. Thanks for the news.

  • I’m a little confused because my aunt isn’t allowed to drink green tea. It acts as some sort of blood thinner and she drinks medicines that don’t interact well with green tea. It would be good to ask your physician first before you drink green tea.

  • Apples are really good. My daughter used to get sick a lot until I started to let her eat apples daily. It was honestly very miraculous and maybe she just lacked in vitamin C or something, but it’s really great that I found a solution to boosting her immune system.

    Not sure about green tea but I know that it’s a good antioxidant. Not a tea person and more of a coffee person that’s why.

  • Olive Williams says:

    I agree that you just have to try eating apples and drinking green tea for yourself. It’s a very accessible fruit that’s around almost the entire year.

  • Monique Malick says:

    Apples are friggin’ amazing super foods. That’s a really nice percentage of vitamin C compared to orange.

  • I’ve tried green tea with apple slices and it tastes good. Although I don’t drink my green tea hot/warm. I usually let the apple slices get soaked after I steep my green tea, then leave it inside the fridge to chill. It just tastes way more refreshing than drinking it warm. Although when the weather is cold, I don’t mind drinking it warm. Just not on hot days.

  • Apples have always been healthy for us. I make sure I eat even a half of it.
