The myth about the benefits of apples is dispelled

Autumn is the time when delicious, aromatic fruits ripen in the gardens. Although apples increase the body's defenses, normalize stool in case of constipation, lower cholesterol and blood sugar levels, Chinese doctor Zhang Chunrong debunks the myth of their benefits.

The doctor explains that the fruits can be harmful to the body if not consumed correctly. You don't need to eat apples every day. It is unacceptable to combine them with sweet potatoes. Fruits are rich in starch, which induces acid secretion in the stomach. This can lead to serious gastrointestinal problems.

The doctor recommends boiling or steaming apples. In this form, they have a higher nutritional value and retain all the useful properties.
