Apple – good for heart

امام صادق عليه ‏السلام :

لَوْ يَعْلَمُ النَّاسُ مَا فِي التُّفَّاحِ مَا دَاوَوْا مَرْضَاهُمْ إِلَّا بِهِ أَلَا وَ إِنَّهُ أَسْرَعُ شَيْ‏ءٍ مَنْفَعَةً لِلْفُؤَادِ خَاصَّةً وَ إِنَّهُ نَضُوحُه‏

Imam Sadiq (PBUH):

“If people knew what benefits apples have, they would cure their patients with apples only. Apples are faster in benefiting the heart and particularly, they have a good smell.”

Tib Al-A’emeh, p.135

Eating an apple or two each day may reduce heart disease risk factors, a new study shows.

The study, which is the latest to polish the apple’s heart-healthy reputation, found that eating apples daily appeared to lower levels of cholesterol and two other markers associated with plaques and inflammation in artery walls.

“We were pleasantly surprised …” that apples so effectively lowered LDL (bad) cholesterol, says study researcher Bahram H. Arjmandi, PhD, RD, Margaret A. Sitton Professor and Chair, Department of Nutrition, Food and Exercise Sciences at The Florida State University in Tallahassee.
