Can something as enjoyable as a delicious apple per day, be the cure that diabetics are looking for?

We have all heard of the saying: “an apple a day keeps the doctor away”, but it also means that obesity-related illnesses can be controlled, including Type 2 diabetes.

Not just any type of apple will do, it seems that Granny Smiths’ promote friendly bacteria that is helpful in minimizing hunger pains.

Granny Smith apples are high in antioxidants, especially epicatechin and cyaniding, when eaten raw, with the skin. These types of apples are also high in potassium and fiber, and naturally low in calories, which makes them a great choice for healthy diets.

In addition, Granny Smith apples have a longer shelf life that other apple varies, due it their low levels of ethylene. In the proper conditions, these apples can be stored for several months, without losing any of their taste or health benefits.

These bright, beautiful green apples are known to have a tart taste, and have been proven to show, that people feel fuller longer, thanks to their high fiber content.

At the University of Washington State, scientists tested a variety of apples on mice, to see which one promoted the most friendly- bacteria in the stomach. The results have shown that, when compared to Gala, Golden and Red Delicious, McIntosh, Fuji and Braeburn; the Granny Smith is the best.

This scientific team had analyzed mouse dropping, after they were fed a variety of fruits. The results revealed that feces of mice that were overweight; and had eaten the Granny Smith apples, had changed, and had become similar to the feces of thinner mice. This discovery can lead to more effective treatment, regarding weight loss and illnesses associated with obesity, including minor inflammation issues.

They discovered that the bacteria in the colon of obese individuals are out of balance, causing the metabolism to become disrupted, and cause overweight individuals to have a false sense of hunger.
