When we get too much of Galectin-3 it causes us to have heart failure, kidney disease, and cancer.

Drug companies can seem to come up with product that can fight the destructive actions of Galectin-3.

Today, we have so many varieties available to us. It is almost staggering trying to figure out which ones to buy. I can limit many by looking for organic. I usually choose granny smith (green apple) because it is lower in sugar. The apple is has antioxidant compounds in the skin, in particular quercetin, epicatechin, and procyanidin. These are thought to be part of reason apples protect us from brain damage which causes Alzheimer’s and Parkinson disease. According to studies, apples may reduce the risk of several common cancers. Apples also contain a soluble fiber called pectin, which is known to lower high cholesterol levels, regulates digestive function and helps boost the immune system.
Now, you can see why the old adage “an apple a day keeps the doctor away”. More truth to it than we ever knew growing up. Apples are great to add to just about and mix of fruits and vegetables.
