It seems that a natural way to age gracefully begins with the food we eat. For example, a natural compound – fisetin – found in apples and strawberries offer great antiaging effects. This powerful antioxidant flavonoid is emerging at the very center of a cutting-edge antiaging therapy known as senolytics as previously mentioned. Here Ellaine Castillo, NaturalNews.com, reflects on reasons to eat an apple a day:
“As the famous saying goes, an apple a day keeps the doctor away. But have you ever wondered how it does this?
According to studies, there are many ways through which apples can improve a person’s quality of life and all of these are possible due to the fruit’s high nutrient content.
Apples contain significant amounts of vitamins C, A, E, B, and K, as well as fiber, copper, manganese, and potassium. Additionally, they are rich in phytonutrients such as polyphenols that can be attributed for the majority of the health benefits of apples. Some examples of these health benefits include the following:

- Reducing cholesterol levels — A study from Florida State University showed that older women who regularly consumed apples exhibited a 23 percent reduction in bad cholesterol and a 4 percent increase in good cholesterol. This effect can be attributed to the ability of soluble fiber in apples to bind fats in the intestine.

- Improving heart health — Researchers from the University of Oxford found that apples are just as effective as statins (drugs that lower cholesterol levels) in preventing vascular death in people over the age of 50. This is possible with the help of phenolic compounds in apple skin that prevent cholesterol from accumulating on the walls of blood vessels.

- Preventing cancer — Many studies have looked at the relationship between cancer risk and apple consumption. The majority of them have arrived at the conclusion that eating apples help prevent cancer. This is because they contain flavonols and triterpenoids that prevent the growth and proliferation of cancer cells.

- Lowering diabetes risk — Previous studies have associated apples with a reduced risk of Type 2 diabetes, which they attributed to the fruit’s polyphenol content. These phytochemicals have potent antioxidant properties that protect beta cells in the pancreas from tissue damage that can interfere with their ability to produce insulin.”
