How Apples Improve Digestion

Apples contain a compound called pectin which is an enzyme that helps dissolve accumulated waste matter from the GI tract. Drinking a few glasses of fresh apple juice every morning can literally relieve symptoms of indigestion and constipation. It is also essential to reduce the consumption of dairy, processed foods and meats which are all very congesting and hard to digest thus being one of the primary causes of digestive problems.

Apples are not only an excellent source of fiber, they are delicious and can be easily incorporated into your daily diet. The natural simple sugars (monosaccharides)  in apples are good for more than just their sweet taste, they also provide a dynamic energy boost and tone the cells.

For people with digestive problems, apples are an easy way to get you back on track. Apples are packed with fiber, which helps balance your GI tract. The energy in apples is so strong that it regulates bowel movements, and you will experience less pain and discomfort from indigestion and constipation. In the long run, apples can also help you avoid certain stomach disorders by keeping your digestive system in check.

For some people this may be too aggressive at the beginning since apples have a strong cleansing effect upon the Gastrointestinal tract, therefore it can be beneficial to dilute your freshly squeezed apple juice with some coconut water or fresh cucumber juice or carrot juice.

Some people also use raw unfiltered apple cider vinegar in the morning which is also very beneficial for digestion and has helped treat many other symptoms. Read more about the benefits of Apple Cider Vinegar by clicking here! 

It is important that you make your own juices since commercial apple juice brands that are sold in supermarkets are pasteurized and completely depleted of all nutrients, enzymes, vitamins and minerals. Aside form the daily juicing habit I highly recommend eating a diet rich in fruits, vegetables and leafy greens. If you want long term results it is essential to stay consistent and make health a lifestyle.
