Pectin is a natural fiber contained in certain fruit and vegetable, particularly apples. Many health benefits are associated with pectin; they including supplies soluble fiber, lowering blood pressure, protects against metabolic syndrome, lowering glucose levels, lowering bad cholesterol levels, regulating the intestinal environment.6
Apples contain phytochemicals including quercetin, chlorogenic acid, catechin, epicatechin, phloridzin, procyanidins, among others. The high antioxidant capacity of these compounds has been intensively investigated due to their potential beneficial effects on health.
Phloridzin, one of the dihydrochalcones typically contained in apples, is a phytochemical inhibitor specific and competitive of sodium/glucose cotransporters in the intestine (SGLT1) and kidney (SGLT2).7,8
Studies in vivo have shown the beneficial effect of this compound through significant reduction of blood glucose levels and improve dyslipidemia in diabetic rats.9,10
Quercetin, a flavonoid present in a wide variety of vegetables, is also found in many fruits, including apples. This flavonoid has been researched for its potent antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties that potentially protect against degenerative diseases.11
Catechins belong flavanols group, are secondary plant metabolites found in apples, green tea, blackberries, red wine, pears, dark chocolate, and cherries have many important physiological activities. Clinical studies have shown their anti-inflammatory and antioxidative effects, including cardioprotective activity.12,13
Chlorogenic acids, other phytochemicals found in apples, are cinnamic acid derivatives, and represent an abundant group of polyphenols with biological effects mostly related to their antioxidant and anti-inflammatory activities. 14
