Benefits of Apples

91. Cures Dandruff
A paste created with the leaves and skin of green apple works wonders to fix dandruff. You should use this paste as a shampoo. Green apple juice also has the same effects if massaged regularly onto the scalp.

That apples do indeed promote good health throughout our lifetime.
93. Drink Your Apple a Day
To ensure that all the natural goodness and health benefits of apple juice are in every bottle of our apple juice, Martinellis uses only U.S.grown fresh apples of the finest varieties.
94. Ingredients
Apple seeds contain amygdalin, the same ingredient extracted from apricot pits to make the controversial anticancer medicine laetrile. Apple seeds also contain a number of unsaturated fatty acids as well as the minerals calcium, iron, magnesium, phosphorus and potassium.
95. Risks
When consumed in very large amounts, cyanide in apple seeds interferes with your bodys ability to carry oxygen in red blood cells, causing death by asphyxiation. Symptoms of cyanide poisoning, one of the quickest poisoning agents, include rapid breathing, headache, nausea, vomiting, dizziness, weakness and rapid or very slow heartbeat. You could develop seizures, lose consciousness or stop breathing altogether.
96. Absorption Factors
The apple seed has a tough protective outer layer that keeps amygdalin inside it unless you chew it or otherwise break the seed down before eating. Unless you chew the seeds, they pass harmlessly through your intestinal tract and pass unchanged in the stool. This hard outer coating prevents breakdown in animal intestines, which allows the intact apple seeds to grow into new apple trees when they pass in animal stool.
97. Proof of Benefits
Amygdalin has not been proven in any welldesigned clinical trials to reduce the risk of developing cancer or to cure existing cancer. The active ingredient in apple seeds as well as apricot, cherry and peach pits is amygdalin, a mixture of cyanide and sugar that breaks down into hydrogen cyanide when chewed. Some alternative medicine practitioners consider amygdalin a cancerfighting agent, but there is no clinical proof of this benefit.
98. Treatment for Sunburn
Many alternative medicine proponents say that apples can help you recover more quickly from sunburn. To treat your sunburn, add 1 tsp. of glycerine to the pulp from a grated apple. Mix it together and then apply it to your face for about 15 to 20 minutes. Wash the mixture off using cold water. This remedy often prevents blistering and peeling later on.
