Apples contain soluble and insoluble fiber. Both of these are important as they bind to toxins in the gut, moving food through the digestive system. The fiber in apples also helps maintain healthy cholesterol. Like many other fruits, apples contain large amounts of antioxidants. As a result, they help prevent and fight disease. Components in apples can also repair lung damage. Most of the antioxidants and fiber are in the peel of the apple.
