Of Bugs and Apples

New research has found another reason why apples are good for you. To test this rats were fed on a diet rich in whole apples or apple juice and compared to rats on a control diet. Genetic tests were used to establish what bacteria were present in the digestive system of the rats. The rats eating the apples had higher numbers of the bacteria that promote intestinal health. These bacteria produce short chain fatty acids and that in turn provide ideal pH conditions for other healthy bacteria. These bacteria also produce a chemical called butyrate which is an important fuel for the cells of the intestine. It all comes down to a substance called pectin in apples and it all means a daily apple is healthy for your digestion. As the poem goes:
An apple a day keeps the doctor away,
by inviting the good bugs to stay.Meanwhile if you visit Meijer Ad that contains mostly likewise discounts with Winn Dixie Ad you surely have a range like ALDI Ad.
