We’ve all heard that an apple a day keeps the doctor away but do you really know what the ‘forbidden fruit’ can do for you?

Here are five ways apples contribute to your health.

Boosts radiance

Breathing aid

If you peel apples, you’re advised to stop because the skin of an apple contains an antioxidant called quercetin which may protect your lungs from pollutants.

Rejuvenate your scalp

Bad hair day? No worries, apples have your back. Apple cider vinegar is believed to annihilate the bacteria that contributes to dandruff.

Waistline shrinker

Even cancer
