An apple a day keeps a doctor away? Does that really happen? Yes, it does. That is what makes an apple capsule an important supplement to your daily diet, especially if you cannot eat fresh apples that often. The pectins found in apples are separated through rigorous laboratory procedures and added to these capsules.  People who often find it difficult to come across a good quality apple can always rely on apple capsules for getting their daily dose of nutrients.  This blog concentrates on apple capsule benefits but before going into details lets look at some other points.

 

The pectin used in the preparation of apple capsules is drawn from peels and flesh of the whole apple. Clinically it has been established that apple peels contain two to six times more phenolic compounds and three times more flavonoids in comparison to apple flesh.  Apple cider vinegar capsules are another variant of apple capsules which are regularly used to curb the severity of various diseases.

 

Some of the Benefits offered by apple capsules are:

 

Weight Loss
This is good news for all those weight loss aspirants who are in search of miracle pills to manage their weight. The apple capsules are enriched with fibers which trigger a sense of fullness and fulfillment within the eater.

 

Lowers Blood Glucose
The pectin fibers present in the capsule lower the glucose levels in the blood by absorbing the dietary sugar. This means even diabetics can consider having it once in a while for stabilizing their blood sugar levels. At the same time, it is highly recommended that diabetics should consult with their doctors before taking this major step.

 

Reduces Risk of Coronary Heart Disease
The antioxidants present in the apple capsules bind the bile fats and harmful cholesterols, before they are absorbed by the body. This helps to reduce the risk of coronary heart disease.

 

Boosts Colon Health
The capsules prepared from apple extracts are enriched with fibers which get attached to toxins in the stomach and regularize the motion, thereby boosting colon health. The capsules enriched with apple cider vinegar are known to aid in prevention of inflammation within the stomach lining.

 

Saves from Colon Tumor
The apple capsules decrease beta-glucoronidase, which is an enzyme responsible for activating the carcinogenic cells and tumor in colon.

 

Helps to Curb the Severity of Osteoarthritis
Osteoarthritis is usually caused by buildup of acid crystals in the body. The capsules formulated with apple cider vinegar will help in balancing the PH level of the body. Dr. Deforrest Clinton Jarvis in his book "Folk Medicine: A Vermont Doctor's Guide to Good Health” suggests that many of the patients suffering from osteoarthritis have recovered from arthritis symptoms after consuming apple cider vinegar or apple cider vinegar capsules.

 

Antioxidant Activity
Be it apple capsules formulated with pectin or capsules formulated with apple cider vinegar, both are enriched with beta-carotene, which aids in inhibiting the damage caused by the free radicals and helps to boost the system.

 

Additional Information  

Both variants of apple capsules are considered safe for :

  • Kids – If served in very miniscule amounts.
  • Pregnant and Nursing Women – If taken in moderate amounts.
  • Seniors – They need not take any precautions but it is highly recommended that people on prescription drugs should seek an expert's opinion before consuming apple capsules.
