I've been craving apples lately and can't seem to get enough.
I could look up this online I'm sure, but there are so many resourceful people here.
What vitamin is in an apple? Do you have a link?
vegggeeemom, I am so happy for you because you are listening to your body instead off your brain. It has the vitimins, minerals, or phytonutrients that you need right now. Don't even be concerned about which one it is. Your body knows best. Yay! You're health is going to get better, because you are giving your body what it says it needs.

Thank you so much! I do know that my body does "talk" to me.
And if I'm craving apples I'm going to eat them. Normally I'm craving oranges, but it's apples right now and whatever it is in them, I'm apparently needing it!
They just taste so good. I think I may have another! :)
Thanks for that encouraging post!

There is a supplement being touted for aiding weightloss called, pyruvate (boosts metabolism/antioxidant). Skins of red apples contain a fair amount :). To get what is currently considered a daily dosage of pyruvate, one needs to eat 10-12 apples per day; however, that much is not required to see results as just 3 apples a day contain pectin which aids dietary fat out of the body and contains a lot of fiber for satiety as well.
I have been eating a lot of apples per day for years, and suspect they've been one reason I've remained slim; now, having learned about pyruvate, wonder if this is also part of why.
With all the benefits of apples, I would go with the desire for them and enjoy

Weight loss benefits? Whoo Hoo LOL I need that one for sure!
There seems to be alot of people that just love apples around here. I usually like them, but lately have loved them.
Interesting to know that others share the love of the apple! LOL
JMD, hmm, that's a good question. As with many fruits, the benefits lie in the peeling. I'm sure someone here has a documented answer though!
