Other fruits that also have anti-inflammatory benefits

The nutrients found in apple: fiber, vitamin C, pectin, have been associated primarily in animal studies, with anti-inflammatory effects and an increase in beneficial microbes in the gut.

Fruits like berries from strawberries and blackberries to cranberries and blue­berries, these gemlike fruits are particularly potent in antioxidant and anti-inflammatory activity. Some studies have shown that increase berry consumption will lower heart disease.

Stone fruits like peaches, apricots and plums also contains fibre, potassium, vitamin C and several phytochemicals associated with their colours. The high levels of phenolic compounds in cherries, which have been shown to reduce inflammation, may be behind those benefits.

Research Shows Apples can reduce inflammation and cholesterol

In terms of cholesterol, studies shown that eating apples regularly on a daily basis can reduce the levels of cholesterol and a type of protein called C-reactive protein (CRP), a key marker of inflammation in the blood. When 26 people ate three apples a day, their cholesterol fell by 7 per cent - more than those who ate the same diet with no apples. Another research conducted with 160 women aged 45-65 where half of the participants ate three-quarters of a cup of dried apples every day for a year, and the other half ate a cup of prunes. Within six months, the apple eaters’ LDL (bad) cholesterol decreased 23 percent, their HDL (good) cholesterol increased 4 percent and their CRP fell 32 percent.
