New Delhi: It is the known fact that an apple a day keeps the doctor away. However, it is essential to know the exact health benefits of the fruit.

It may be mentioned that the list is not exhaustive.
Apart from the above list, apple also helps in the treatment of dandruff and getting clean and clear skin. It may be mentioned that as the peel of the apple contains nutrients, the fruit should be consumed without removing it.
According to a recent study, an apple carries about 100 million bacteria.
Besides extra fiber, flavonoids and flavor, you’re also quaffing 10 times as many bacteria per fruit as your core-discarding counterparts, findings suggest. If this is good or bad for health depends on how they are grown.
Published in Frontiers in Microbiology, a new study shows that organic apples harbor a more diverse and balanced bacterial community – which could make them healthier and tastier than conventional apples, as well as better for the environment.
