The original superfood.

More than 9 in 10 American shoppers consider health and nutrition when making grocery purchases1. Apples are one of the healthiest foods a person can eat, so they're a great choice for people who want to take care of themselves and their family.

All Fresh GPS uses advanced technology to lock in the nutrition of just-harvested apples. So apples retain their abundant health benefits (and delicious crunch) no matter when you eat them.

Manage Your Weight

Apples are an excellent weight-control food, as they're low in calories and contain no saturated fat or cholesterol. But they're rich in fiber, which makes you feel full longer.

Protect Your Heart

Fiber helps prevent the absorption of dietary LDL (bad cholesterol), which is implicated in heart disease. Plus, apple skins contain a phenolic compound that prevents cholesterol from solidifying on your artery walls and impeding blood flow to your heart.

Curb Cancers

Apples are loaded with phytochemicals that have been shown to reduce the risk of many different cancers, including liver, colon, pancreatic and breast cancer.

Boost Your Immune System

Apples contain good quantities of vitamin C, beta carotene, B-complex vitamins and other powerful antioxidants that help the body develop resistance against infectious agents. They may also help eliminate harmful, pro-inflammatory free radicals from the body.

Decrease Your Risk of Diabetes

Apples have been shown to help regulate blood sugar, lessening the absorption of glucose from the digestive tract and stimulating the pancreas to secrete insulin.

Take Care of Your Teeth

If you don't have a toothbrush available, try munching on an apple – it will stimulate your gums, increase saliva flow and help reduce the build-up of cavity-causing bacteria.

Live Better

Apples have also been implicated in reducing the risk of Alzheimer's and Parkinson's, high blood pressure, gallstones, irritable bowel syndrome, hemorrhoids and cataracts. They can even boost your exercise endurance by making more oxygen available to your lungs. They truly are a superfood!
