One of the best things about writing this e-newsletter is that I hear from people all over the world. For instance, I recently received an email the other day from Johny V., who lives in Belgium. Johny asked, "Is AppleBoost good for a healthy blood pressure?"
That's a great question Johny. AppleBoost, as you may know, contains powerful flavonoids from apple skins. I showed you on Monday how flavonoids from chocolate can work miracles for high blood pressure. Well, a new study from Canada says the flavonoids in AppleBoost can have the same effect. In fact, the flavonoids in apples can have a better effect than the flavonoids from other fruits.
This was a comparative study from researchers at the Nova Scotia Agricultural College. They compared the effect of apple peels to the effects of the rest of the apple. They also compared apple peel to many other fruits.
They wanted to know which superfood would inhibit the enzyme ACE. As you may know, this is the enzyme many blood pressure drugs inhibit. You'll hear them referred to as ACE-inhibitors.
The researchers found that the apple peel has six times the amount of flavonoids as the rest of the apple. It also was more effective at inhibiting ACE. And it was far better at lowering blood pressure than the flesh of the apple.
How did the apple peel extract compare to other fruits? It blew them away too. The researchers discovered that, yes, the other fruits have some level of flavonoids. However, those levels could not compare with the effectiveness of an apple peel in treating high blood pressure. You read that right. The apple peel extract was more effective at lowing blood pressure than many of the superfoods on the market. These included blueberries, green tea, and others.
Of course, that doesn't mean you should rely on apples alone to lower your blood pressure. These other fruits are powerful health foods that you need to have in your diet every day. But it does mean an apple peel extract like AppleBoost could be one of the best superfoods available for lowering your blood pressure.
