An apple a day keeps the Plastic surgeon at bay!

An apple a day keeps the Plastic surgeon at bay!

Ever since the beginning of creation women have had a love/hate relationship with apples.  Today we are learning that apples may tempt us for good reason.  They have wellness benefits galore!  Keep in mind that much of the goodness of an apple is found in the skin, so don't peel those apples. The skin packs the most vitamins.

4 reasons apples really do keep the doctor away:

  • A medium apple with the skin contains 4.4 grams of fiber. But don't peel it!  Without the skin it's only 2.1 grams, making it only a so-so source of fiber.  The two healthiest varieties of apples are the Red Delicious and Granny Smith.  These beauties are rich in Vitamin C and Vitamin A too.
  • Speaking of beautyApples provide a source of copper, an essential mineral that contributes to healthy skin. Copper helps you make melanin, the pigment that colors your skin. Apples also contain pectin, which is important in maintaining and promoting collagen growth in skin. Both green and red apples contain Vitamin C which helps prevent damage to skin cells by free radicals, reducing chances of skin cancer.
  • Cancer Prevention: The role of apples in cancer prevention has been a subject of study for some time. Studies have shown improvement in various types of cancer, particularly breast and colon cancer, the most significant discoveries have been regarding lung cancer. Most fruits and vegetables have some sort of anti-cancer effects, but apples stand head and shoulders among the rest. They show a distinct and undeniable capacity to reduce lung cancer and slow its spread if it does develop. 
  • Apples and your brain: A 2010 study performed on mice shows that drinking apple juice could keep Alzheimer’s away and fight the effects of aging on the brain. Mice in the study that were fed an apple-enhanced diet showed higher levels of the neurotransmitter acetylcholine and did better in maze tests than those on a regular diet.

 

No longer the forbidden fruit...eat an apple a day to keep the plastic surgeon away!

See what people are saying!


My skin is glowing
It’s been almost two weeks since I started Retinol treatment. Wow, what a change, my skin is glowing! I’m noticing fine lines disappearing. I’m so impressed with all Parisians products but this is by far my favorite ~ Lynda F. CA

Great Product!
I have been using the Peptide Line Diminishing Eye Gel for several months now and have noticed that my eyes appear brighter and less “tired”. The puffiness is less and the skin under them is brighter. ~ Jeanne M. NC

Great for sore muscles/joints
Serenity Premium CBD Gel works for me! Highly recommend for relief from sore or strained muscles! I have an old ACL injury that acts up from time to time and this quiets the aches quickly. Smells nice without being too strong, too. ~ Connie M. HI

Platinum C gets a "A" from me!
I started using PPI's Platinum C about a year ago when I decided to dump the toxic department store brand from my beauty regimen.The Platinum C meets and exceeds my expectations and has kept my skin texture smooth, even and yes - YOUTHFUL!! The same type product in department stores would have cost me almost double what I pay for PPI. ~ Nicole R. CA
