One apple a day for a year reduces the risk of dying from ‘stroke’ or ‘heart attack’ by one quarter

Tarragona / A study shows that eating a whole apple a day (about 100 grams) for a year reduces the risk of dying from stroke by 27 percent and the risk of dying from a heart attack by 27 percent, according to the university from Reus and Tarragona.

The URV research group study on functional nutrition, oxidation and cardiovascular disease says that it also reduces the risk of hypertension by 9 percent and the risk of severe calcification of the aortic artery by 24 percent.

In addition, the consumption of an apple a day for at least eight weeks reduces the values ​​of total cholesterol and low density cholesterol, LDL or “bad cholesterol”, while increasing high density, HDL or “good cholesterol”.

If you eat an apple daily for six weeks, inflammation levels are also reduced.

The study has also found that if 200 grams of apple are eaten, systolic blood pressure drops after two hours and arterial function is improved.

These results are part of the AppleCor Project with the support of the Ministry of Economy, Industry and Competitiveness, the State Research Agency (AEI) and the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF). (February 28, 2020, EFE / PracticaEspañol)
