An Apple’s Secret Weapon
I know you have heard of the saying, “An apple a day will keep the doctor away,” which has actually has some validity to it. Why is the apple significant? Quercetin. Quercertin occurs naturally in apples, onion, and grapes and it works to boost the mitochondria, which are the power plants of our cells. Most cells in the human body contain somewhere between 500 and 2000 mitochondria, but damage to them may increase aging.
I would suggest that, if you want to delay your aging process, increase all aspects of your daily exercise-aerobic exercise may increase the number of mitochondria by 40 to 60 percent in six weeks. I also encourage you to eat half a red apple every day (I do not encourage green apples because they tend to stagnate digestion). I suggest the half because a whole apple is twenty-two grams of sugar and you need to watch the number of carbohydrates you consume.
