Maintain a healthy heart: A Women's Health Study found that out of nearly 40,000 surveyed, women who had consumed the highest amount of ﬂavonoids were 35% less likely to experience a cardiovascular event. Other studies have found inverse links between the consumption of apples and the risk of thrombotic stroke and heart disease. Fight free radicals: Flavonoids are also polyphenols, which are known to scavenge harmful free radicals and may prevent the spread of neurodegenerative diseases. Reduce your risk of diabetes: In a Finnish study of 10,000 people, greater consumption of apples was tied to a reduced risk of Type II diabetes.
