Why do we need 100 apples a day?

 

As previously posted, polyphenols in fruits and vegetables are essential requirements to our diet to maintain and promote good health.

 

How much fruit and vegetable a human body needs to maintain or promote good health? 

 

Let us use apple as an example.

 

On average, an apple (100 g) contains 2 mg quercetin (a polyphenol)1. Data from a scientific study suggested that we need 200mg quercetin daily for its reported biological activity2.  We need to eat 100 apples daily to fulfil the required daily 200 mg quercetin. 

 

How can a person possibly eat 100 apples daily?  Is there a better way to fulfil the quercetin or polyphenol daily requirement?

 

Fret not. Nutrixin Apple Peel Essence is an easy and convenient way to fulfil your daily polyphenol requirements.
