Roughly 2 lbs or 4 ct of Granny Smith Apples
Granny Smith apples promote the growth of good bacteria in the colon because of their high content of nondigestible compounds, like dietary fiber and polyphenols, and a low amount of carbohydrates.
When you chew and eat a Granny Smith, the compounds reach the colon, where they ferment and grow friendly bacteria colonies there.
Scientists know that obese people have an imbalance in their colons' bacterial communities, which leads to inflammation and triggers disorders like diabetes. The compounds in green apples can help restore this balance and prevent some of the damage of obesity.
