Everybody knows the proverb, that an apple a day keeps a doctor away. It helps as to our body in a whole to be healthy and to keep fit, and as a good and helpful medicine for lots and lots of diseases. It is recommended to eat an apple with the peel and even with its seeds, as 6-8 seeds rich our organizm with a needed in a day quantity of iodine. Espessially useful to eat this fruit at least one, before you are doing to sleep. It is also very useful for the health of our teeth, so when you don't have a toothbrush next to you, you may eat an apple to make your teeth to be clean.

I didn't expect this fruit to be that magic. It need to eat at least 5 apples daily but is there any specific number of how many apples need to eat during week/month or so, to equip our immune system with enough of strength until next year? I might not be able to have it as my daily ration but i'd calculate in my mind how much of apples i could eat within all four seaons. I'm bothered by this question, it got me curious. So it provides our body with so many vitamins and the main is C. I'm speechless. It's awesome!
