An apple a day helps keep the pounds away

Tehran, Jan 28, IRNA – An apple a day not only keeps the doctor at bay but also helps you shed the pounds, according to researchers.

Fruit and vegetables that contain high levels of flavonoids seem to stop people putting on weight, Mail Online health news reported.
Flavonoids are plant compounds found in berries, apples, pears, strawberries and radishes.
They have long been celebrated for their antioxidant effect, which is thought to help prevent cell damage. But experts also think that the compounds may also help reduce the energy - particularly from sugar that is absorbed from food.
Researchers at the University of East Anglia (UEA) and Harvard Medical School found that certain flavonoids were linked to maintaining a healthy weight, and even helped people lose a little.
