The saying goes that an apple a day keeps the doctor away. Studies show that women who ate 3 average-sized apples a day were more prone to weight loss than those who did not. They are known for supporting heart health and are a diabetic-friendly fruit as they help to regulate blood sugar levels and lower blood pressure.

But did you know that apples can strengthen your intestines?

In Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), the Intestines are linked with the Lungs. They are both the most exterior of systems and the highest and lowest systems in the Body. Strong intestines support proper digestive function, the absorption of nutrients, and the elimination of toxins. Apples are prebiotic and support a healthy gut biome.

A healthy intestinal tract will not be constipated or have diarrhea.

Emotionally in TCM, the Lungs and Intestines are associated with being able to remain grounded and process sorrow and emotional upsets without becoming stuck or falling apart.

Apples can strengthen your intestines, help you smile and breathe more deeply, and help you let go of emotional issues that may be holding you back.
