Apples truly are the “superfruit” for everyone. The health benefits of apples and apple products were first recorded as early as medieval times, giving rise to the old English saying “Ate an apfel avore gwain to bed Makes the doctor beg his bread” and its modern day variation, “An apple a day keeps the doctor away.”
