Try Apple Tea for Weight Loss and Overall Health.

Much is known about the medicinal and weight loss benefits of Apple Cider Vinger, but not much about its counterpart, Apple Tea. This herbal and fruit tea is just as beneficial in weight loss and preventing high cholesterol and diabetes. Apples are great for our health because they contain many essential nutrients and antioxidants. After all, we all know the adage: An apple a day keeps the doctor away.  This soothing tea has been used for centuries to alleviate fevers and constipation. It is easy to make and can be used as a substitute for over-the-counter remedies. If this interests you, research online for recipes and reviews on to learn more about healthy food alternatives to pharmaceutical products.

Benefits of Apples and Apple Tea.

Apples are nutritious fruits full of plant chemicals called flavonoids like Pectin.  Pectin is a fiber that breaks down in the gut. Because it takes longer to digest, you are left feeling full, which will prevent you from over-eating and gaining weight. Next time you eat an apple, consider leaving the skin on, as this is where you will find the Pectin and other plant chemicals. This flavonoid also helps with acid reflux, diarrhea, and constipation. It protects blood vessels and prevents heart disease.  Polyphenols are also found in apples and other fruits.  These micro-nutrients have antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties, which can help slow the growth of specific cancer cells, reduce bad cholesterol, and reduce the development of type-2 diabetes. Apples are also high in magnesium, potassium, sodium, and vitamin C, which help build immunity and bone health.  Apple tea is versatile as it can be enjoyed hot and cold.  It has a unique, slightly sweet taste which is great in winter to keep you warm and healthy.  Like most teas, it is a soothing and relaxing drink.

Too many Apples a day may bring the Doctor straight away.

Too much of a good thing most likely turns out to be not such a good thing. The same could be said about consuming too many apples. Firstly eating too many apples will not help with weight loss and can lead to putting on weight. Always wash your apples before eating to get rid of pesticide residue, apples are prone to be infected with bugs and diseases, and many pesticides are used to prevent this. Although it takes a large number of apple seeds to be toxic, it is worth knowing that apple seeds contain cyanide and should be removed before making apple tea and should not generally be consumed.

Apple Tea Recipe.

All you need to make apple tea is two cups of boiled water, one large apple, two black tea bags, and cinnamon. Chop the apple into small cubes, and remember to keep the skin on.  Add the apple and cinnamon, which detoxifies your system and helps with inflammation, to the boiling water. Simmer the apple pieces in the water for twenty minutes. Turn off the heat and add the tea bags, allowing them to be drawn into the mixture.  Once this is done, strain the mix, and the leftover liquid is now ready to be consumed as a beautiful apple tea. Enjoy!
