Amazing Quercetin In Apples

protein, granny smith appleI use apples in almost all of my juice recipes. I also eat apples raw, stewed and baked. There are so many different kinds and so many flavors, I’ll never get tired of them. One of my favorites is the Granny Smith Apple. It’s crisp, juicy, has freckled green skin, is sweetly tart and excellent for juicing. It also contains less sugar than red (gala) apples. It’s grown in New Zealand, Australia, California and Arizona so usually available year-round. Refrigerated storage time: 240 days. Wow!

 

Benefits Of Quercetin

Here are some potential benefits of quercetin. Quercetin may help fight cell-damaging free radicals and quercetin is a flavonoid that may stave off viruses when the body is under stress. Flavonoids give color to many fruits, flowers and vegetables. Quercetin may also significantly improve the symptoms associated with two forms of prostatitis, chronic nonbacterial prostatitis and prostadynia. When consumed, it acts as an antioxidant in the body.

The apple contains a high concentration of quercetin at approximately 440mg/kg and apples are very common in juicing recipes. The consumption of apples give the body a boost of antioxidants. It’s well known that antioxidants rid the body of free radicals that damage cells and cause health issues such as heart disease, cancer and premature aging.

Here’s a delicious recipe: Apple Fresh

Serves 2 people

  • 3 apples (granny smith)
  • 1 cup of red grapes
  • 1/2 lemon (peeled)

I enjoy adding an apple to my green juices, it just makes them more palatable for me. I only have to wash and slice them in half, then juice. It’s so easy. I also love the taste of fresh apple juice by it’s self and I think you’ll agree with me that it’s a beneficially amazing fruit. So get your apples out and ready to juice. Juice to your health!

    Quercetin is good. Quercetin is a naturally occurring flavonoid that is obtained from plants. A flavonoid is a kind of phytochemical of which there are more than 10 different subclasses. The primary sources for quercetin can be found in foods such as apples and onions, with other foods having less concentration such as berries, red grapes, broccoli, and citrus fruits. It is also available as a nutritional supplement, and you can find it widely available in many drugstores. Quercetin is digested and absorbed by the smaller intestine and colon where it conjugates with glucuronic acid. At this point, it becomes bound to albumin and gets passed on to the liver. Research has found that there are many benefits of quercetin in the body.Because flavonoids such as quercetin are not produced in our bodies, we can only obtain it by eating certain types of food that contain it, or through nutritional supplements added to our diet. Researchers showed that quercetin has many benefits and can help treat people with many conditions such as eczema, hives, asthma, hay fever and allergies. Other more serious conditions include pancreatitis and prostatitis.

    Don’t forget that the extra soluble fiber in apples can also help offset your risk of diabetes and Parkinsons! I guess it really is true what they say about an “apple a day.”
