Yes, an apple a day does keep the doctor away! The apple, that shiny, beautiful red fruit which teased its way into Eve's heart and lured Snow White into an enchanting sleep, is packed with all sorts of nutritional benefits. Not only does it boost your immune system, it also cleanses your liver, prevents cataracts, controls weight, and contributes to a healthy heart.(1) It's no wonder then that the folks over at Mott's love working with this luscious fruit!
It all started with S.R. Mott, who has been growing apples in New York since 1842. Using techniques he learned from his grandfather, Mott perfected advanced pasteurization and filtration techniques at his mill, resulting in the popularity of his products.
Mott's 100% Original Apple Juice offers nurturing goodness for the entire family. It's not only great-tasting and nutritious, it is also rooted in the fine tradition of making the most of the goodness of the lovely apple. Through the years, Mott's has proven to be the expert when it comes to apples by offering delicious products of consistently high quality. Generations of mothers have trusted Mott's for its venerable heritage.
Every eight-ounce serving of Mott's 100% Original Apple Juice provides your family with two servings of fruit and 120% Daily Value Vitamin C. That's not just 100% juice, that's also 100% delicious!
Apple juice is great in so many healthy ways. Just one serving of apple juice already gives your body a nice boost of vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants. It's got vitamin C and polyphenol antioxidants which work to improve your overall health and well-being. It also has loads of potassium to keep your heart healthy and strong.
There are a string of other benefits to drinking apple juice:
- Protects the heart: Because of the antioxidant flavonoids and phytonutrients in apple juice, drinking apple juice helps lower the risk of heart disease.(2)
- Goodbye asthma: Because apple juice is so high in antioxidants, it can very well help prevent asthma attacks. A study has shown that apple consumption has been associated with decreased risk of asthma.(3)
- Prevents cancer: Apple juice not only has antioxidant activity, it also has antimutagenic characteristics, anti-inflammatory mechanisms, and immunity features, among others. All these help reduce the risk of cancer. (4)
- Improves memory: A new study shows drinking apple juice may improve memory. By preventing the decline of an essential neurotransmitter known as acetylcholine, drinking apple juice may help improve one's memory. (5)
- Helps fight Alzheimer's Disease: Antioxidant-rich apple juice may also reduce problems associated with memory loss and help fight Alzheimer's disease. (6)
