Apples improve neurological health

A study published in the journal Experimental Biology and Medicine found that quercetin (one of the antioxidants found abundantly in apples) was one of two compounds that helped to reduce cellular death that is caused by oxidation and inflammation of neurons.

What Is Quercetin?

Quercetin is a type of flavonoid antioxidant that’s found in plant foods (such as apples). It’s technically considered a “plant pigment,” which is exactly why it’s found in deeply colored, nutrient-packed fruits and veggies.

Quercetin helps slow the aging progress because it lessens the effects of oxidative stress on the body.  Quercetin plays a role in regulating the immune system’s response to outside stressors through cell signaling pathways called kinases and phosphatases, two types of enzyme and membrane proteins needed for proper cellular function.
