What's in Apples?

I have always heard that "an apple a day keeps the doctor away", but what is it about apples that makes them so healthy?

No sodium and cholesterol. Apple is an important source of potassium and boron. Potassium can balance the pH value; while boron is to help calcium absorption.

A one serving size portion of apple contains 10 per cent vitamin C and 3 grams of dietary fiber. Apples also contain a unique slow burning carbohydrate that helps maintain energy levels. Phloridzin is a flavinoid found in apples that is linked to bone protection. Apples may help against alzheimers.

Some of the things in apples are vitamins, most notably vitamin C, some minerals, folate, fructose or fruit sugar for energy and also fiber. A lot of good stuff in a small package.
