You definitely didn’t know this about the apple!

It is one of the most famous and actually the most common fruits in the world. Probably none of us expects that an apple could surprise him with something. It is round, sometimes green, sometimes yellow and mostly red. Sometimes its taste is sweet like honey, sometimes it tastes more like a sour lemon. Anyway, if it’s fresh, it’s always delicious. However, we have found 10 interesting things for you that make an „ordinary“ apple definitely „extraordinary“.

Apples have taken over the deciduous trees
Apples have taken over the deciduous trees! Half of them are apple trees. There are most of them in the USA, China, Turkey, Italy and Poland.

The first apple pie is from England
America’s typical Apple Pie is actually not from America, but from Europe. The first recipe for apple pie comes from the year 1300, specifically from England.

7000 apple varieties
To try all the more than 7,000 apple varieties grown around the world, you would have to eat at least 1 apple a day and it would take you more than 20 years. That’s quite a challenge, don’t you think? 🙂

Apples float
Apples float in water because they are 25% air.

Eve may not have eaten the apple
An apple may not be responsible for the expulsion of Eve and Adam from Paradise. Apple was a general term used for any fruit that was not a berry for at least 1,600 years, which is when the first English translations of the Bible were produced. This may also be the reason why people think that Eve ate an apple, but it may not have been so…

Watch out for the kernels
Apple cores actually contain cyanide, a deadly poison. Specifically, they contain amygdalin, which is a known cyanogenic glycoside. The latter has a protective function, but when you chew or crush the kernels, amygdalin is converted into hydrogen cyanide in the body. It is toxic to you because it prevents cells from using oxygen properly, leading to their death within minutes at high doses. However, you would have to eat hundreds of such crushed kernels at once.

Fear of the apple
The fear of apples in any form, for example even eating an apple, is called Malusdomesticaphobia.

Effect on cholesterol
A medium-sized apple contains about 4 grams of pectin, a soluble fiber that can lower blood cholesterol. If you start eating 2 to 3 apples a day, your cholesterol can drop by up to 10%.

Apples increase our memory
Does 1 apple a day make you smarter? You could call it J. The apple is rich in acetylcholine, which is in charge of communication between nerve cells and encourages them to work. Eating an apple improves your memory and what’s more, it contains antioxidants and flavonoids that can prevent inflammation in the brain and also reduce the presence of beta-amyloid toxin, which is responsible for Alzheimer’s disease.

You will stop craving cigarettes
An apple as an anti-smoking tool? Also a big yes! Fruit acids activate nicotine stored in the intestines and can cause an unpleasant sensation in smokers. However, if you stick with eating an apple for at least 2-3 days and overcome the initial digestive problems (which can occur after such a high intake of apples), your intestines will be cleansed of toxins. Then experts promise that you will stop craving cigarettes. Anyway, why not at least give it a try? We wish you a lot of strength!
