Apple Pectin Health Benefits

We all know the saying “an apple a day keeps the doctor away”, but can you honestly say that you are doing all that you can with this marvelous and healthful fruit??? Are you getting your share of Apple Pectin???

I’ve always liked apples, same as the person next to me, but I must say that I went through a great part of my early life only eating a fresh apple once in a great while. Usually with caramel taffy on the outside… As a kid growing up my idea of enjoying the taste of apple was more likely in a sour hard candy wrapped in plastic, more so than the ripe fruit which I should have had more often than sweets.

There is nothing quite like eating a fresh apple or juicing it!

It wasn’t really till my late twenties and I was in a personal health crisis from over-indulgance and a fast food lifestyle, that I even considered making a conscious effort to add apples to my daily food regimen.

A day rarely passes that I don’t include an apple in my daily juicing routine, as well as sprinkle in some apple pectin.

I’ll spare the long detailed story about that health crisis, but let’s just say that I was in a state of constant haze and fog and I just wasn’t feeling very well.

After going to a doctor for the white carpet on my tongue (thrush) fatigue and not getting any satisfactory help, I found a life changing book called:

Juicing for Life: A Guide to the Benefits of Fresh Fruit and Vegetable Juicing

by Cherie Calbom

Search : Juicing for Life: A Guide to the Benefits of Fresh Fruit and Vegetable Juicing

The book goes for 10 bucks at amazon. You can also read part of it at Google Books.

This book “Juicing for Life” truly changed my life. In fact, I believe the “big change” happened as I was  standing there in Barnes and Noble reading the forward/introduction by Cherie that I had an epiphony and discovered WHY I was feeling like crap.

Cherie too had what sounded exactly like what I did and she explained her history which also had a high sugar load and a diet of mostly over cooked food, just like mine.

Vegetables were always over cooked or from a can.

I’ll skip the lengthy discussion on what I diagnosed myself with, but I will say I bought the “Juicing For Life” book, ran out and immediately got a juicer and the rest is history! It truly changed my life!
