HEALTHIER OPTION THAN COFFEE
Did you know… Apples are better than coffee!
Not only does an apple a day keep the doctor away, they can also help improve breathing.
Apples contain a high amount of vitamins, phytonutrients, antioxidants and fibre, which keep the body going.
A medium apple is about 90 calories, which is a great way to add substance to your breakfast or pre-workout meal.
Apples contain no caffeine but instead have about 13 grams of natural sugar.
These sugars provoke a similar response to caffeine because vitamins from the apple are released slowly
throughout the body, making you feel more awake.
Unlike caffeine, there are no jolts, mood swings, anxiety, jitters or the dreaded crash.
Much of the increase in energy is due to the natural glucose in the fruit, which is digested and feeds the body’s cells.
The feeling of being awake lasts about as long as it takes the body to metabolise the apple and the cycle of energy reflects that of a bell curve instead of a pyramid like caffeine.
