If You haven’t Tried Granny Smith Apples For Weight loss, You Need To Read This…

Granny smith

Of all the macintoshes, pippins, golden and red delicious, Granny Smith apples make a guilt-free addition to your weight-loss efforts.

So, if you aren’t already filling up your basket with this healthy fruit that’s packed with antioxidants, dietary fibre and flavonoids, then here’s some information that will help you get into the habit of shopping Granny Smiths.

 

 

How eating Granny Smith apples can help you drop some kilos

A study conducted by Washington State University found that Granny Smith apples contain more non-digestible compounds than other kinds of apples. Fiber and polyphenols (a plant-based antioxidant) aren’t completely broken down by the digestive system, therefore, arrive in the colon intact. This is good because they end up doing the things that fiber does and also provide nutrition.

What this study ultimately points out is that the non-digestible compounds in Granny Smith apples feed your good gut bacteria. In fact, the good bacteria in your gut loves to feast on these compounds, according to researchers.

When you’re overweight, your levels of beneficial bacteria in the digestive system are usually low because of poor eating habits. These bacteria are necessary to properly digest the foods you eat; the more efficient your digestion, the less weight you gain or retain. Furthermore, when you manage your gut health, your overall health and state of well-being improves.

 

There’s more to Granny smith apples than fiber and polyphenols

Granny Smith apples are naturally low in calories. They provide a minimal 80 calories for a medium 3-inch piece of fruit. What’s more, the high fiber content of Granny Smith apples improves satiety thus, helps your weight-loss goals. The soluble fiber from the soft inside part of the apple, attracts water in your intestinal tract. It then forms a gel-like substance, slowing digestion and forcing food back up into your stomach. This helps you feel full for a longer period of time. So, why not snack on a Granny Smith apple in the afternoon.
