Natural Weight Loss
 
Adults who eat apples have a considerably lower risk of metabolic syndrome, a bunch of health problems that are linked to numerous chronic diseases such as diabetes and cardiovascular disease. Researchers are not sure whether the syndrome is due to one single cause, but all of the syndrome's risk factors are related to obesity.

A study analysis looked at the association between apple and apple products consumption, nutrient intake and various physiological parameters related to metabolic syndrome. When compared to non-consumers, apple product consumers had a 27% decreased likelihood of being diagnosed with metabolic syndrome.

The researchers found that adults who eat apples and apple products have smaller waistlines that indicate less belly fat, lower blood pressure and a reduced risk for developing metabolic syndrome.

In addition to having a 30% decreased likelihood for elevated diastolic blood pressure and a 36% decreased likelihood for elevated systolic blood pressure, apple product consumers also had a 21% reduced risk of increased waist circumference – all predictors of cardiovascular disease and an increased likelihood of metabolic syndrome. Additionally, adult apple product consumers had significantly reduced C-reactive protein levels, another measurable marker related to cardiovascular risk.

Furthermore, apple product consumers’ diets were healthier than non-consumers – they had an overall greater intake of fruit and key nutrients, including dietary fiber, vitamins A and C, calcium and potassium. These consumers also ate less total fat, saturated fat, discretionary fat and added sugars.

Apples have also been shown to be of benefit for losing weight in an apples weight loss study.
