Back before apple peel became the big news it is today, my friend Dave Copeland licensed a groundbreaking patent from Cornell (written with an emphasis on cancer treatment, by the way) for drying apple peels, and created a supplement called AppleBoost. Unlike pharmaceutical drugs, AppleBoost doesn’t just address a single condition or organ or system. It does all kinds of beneficial things for the body, as Dave mentions in the article below. If you want to make AppleBoost a part of your health regimen (and I recommend that you do), order a supply today at AppleBoost.com. I think what he has written will REALLY open your eyes. Read on and you”ll quickly discover why.

The media has an amazing ability to report on the obvious. Nonetheless, it”s refreshing that they”re finally starting to get it about what really makes for healthful eating. In mid-May, CBS News ran a story on the nutritional power of apple peel. (Yes, they actually consider this news.) They reported on a recent study published in the Journal of Agricultural and Food Chemistry. Using 24 pounds of apple peels generated from 231 pounds of whole apples, researchers extracted the phytochemical content and analyzed it.
Their findings: the peel of the apple has far more antioxidant activity and anti-cancer cell proliferation properties than the flesh of the apple. In fact, the phytochemicals in apple peel were especially effective against human colon, liver, and breast cancer cells.
The study conclusion? Apple peel “should be regarded as a rich source of nutrients and antioxidants.”
Apple peel is high in phenolics, particularly flavonoids which are a subtype of phenolics. You”ve probably heard mention of quercetin before. It”s one of the main flavonoids found in apple peel, and studies show it to possess powerful anti-cancer and anti-inflammatory activities.
The Mayo Clinic found that quercetin helps protect against prostate cancer. Phenolic-rich foods, according to the National Cancer Institute, reduce the risk of lung cancer. Other studies have shown that apples promote healthy lung function and reduce the risk of asthma. A number of studies suggest that apple peel protects against neurodegenerative disorders like Alzheimers. And it just goes on and on.
This isn”t really news, folks. I”ve been saying this for years, as have many others who are a whole lot smarter than me. When it comes to fruits and vegetables, the more color it has, the better it is for you. In apples, that”s the peel. It”s a no brainer. If you aren”t eating at least 9 or 10 servings of brightly colored fruits and veggies a day (including a couple of apples), then whole food supplements – NOT phytochemical or vitamin isolates – can fill in the gap for you.

Power Quote of The Day“An apple a day keeps the doctor away
Apple in the morning – Doctor’s warning
Roast apple at night – starves the doctor outright
Eat an apple going to bed – knock the doctor on the head
Three each day, seven days a week – ruddy apple, ruddy cheek”
