HEALTH BENEFITS AND FUN FACTS
There is a reason they say “An apple a day keeps the doctor away.” Apples are rich in immune system supporting antioxidants and fiber, particularly pectin, a highly soluble and viscous fiber which combats many stress factors in our bodies.
Soluble fibers help control blood sugar levels, and bind with fats in the intestines, reducing cholesterol through their elimination.
While store bought ciders are filtered, strained, pasteurized, and who knows what else, our recipe uses the whole fruit, allowing you to get the the fiber your body wants and the sweet flavor your tastebuds crave!
Combine this with cinnamon, which has also been linked to blood sugar regulation and the reduction of LDL cholersterol levels, and you are literally drinking ‘To your health.’ Cheers!
