Apples are great sources of vitamins A and C. They contain a healthy dose of quercetin, a powerful flavonoid with antioxidant properties, which helps protect the heart and arteries, and may help combat some cancers. Consuming the fruit itself rather than drinking apple juice is best since 80% of the quercetin is lost during processing.
