The Apple Report

Welcome to the science of apples, the one-a-day superfood. Among these pages you will find that I have done the hard work for you. Keeping a constant eye on the literature means you have the latest apple research right here at your fingertips.

And the emerging picture for apples looks bright as recent research begins to bridge the gap between epidemiological data and the science of antioxidant action in the body.

With a greater antioxidant capacity than most commonly consumed fruits, an apple has more antioxidants than half a punnet of blueberries, a cup of strawberries or an orange.

Take the time to learn more about this overlooked every day staple and you will see why an apple a day is as relevant today as it ever was and why apples really are the everyday superfood.

And if you can't find what you need, you can contact me, and I will do my best to find it for you.
