The apple – a classic that has it all


The apple – a classic that has it all

“An apple a day keeps the doctor away” – a saying that is widespread and has lots of truth in it. The apple is not only fresh and fruity, but there are so many more reasons why you could eat apples every day.

There are around 30 different vitamins in an apple. To list them all would probably be too much of a good thing, but the number itself already reveals how healthy apples are. Therefore apple couldn’t be missing in our Compass Mints varieties.

In this article, we would like to briefly bring you closer to the great benefits apples have for our health.

Apples strengthen the immune system

Apples contain a particularly high amount of vitamin C. A regular consumption of apples can therefore prevent flu-like infections, fever, bronchitis or gout.

Reduced heart attack risk

Two apples a day are said to prevent hardening of the arteries and heart attacks due to their high pectin content. Pectin can be found in the skin of the apple – which is why you shouldn’t peel your apples.

Better sleep

An apple in before bedtime is said to help you sleep deeper and more restful. This takes the word “midnight snack” to a whole new level.

In addition to all of these things, the fruit is also good for the brain, liver or intestines. In fact, just one apple a day protects against many diseases. We think that apples should be clearly classified as superfoods.
A quick apple flavoured refreshment in between shouldn’t be missing. If you like it fresh and fruity, Compass Mints Green Apple is the right choice.
