Benefits of Apple Sauce
- Combats diarrhea. It is high in pectin and hence forms bulk fibrous matter, and also a protective coat for soothing the colon lining and intestinal spasms.
- Good for weight-loss. In human digestion, pectin binds to cholesterol and slows glucose absorption by trapping carbohydrates. Pectin is thus a soluble dietary fiber.
- Reduces blood cholesterol levels, due to an increase of viscosity in the intestinal tract, leading to a reduced absorption of cholesterol from bile or food.
- Fights yeast infections by releasing short-chain fatty acids that have a positive prebiotic influence on health.
- Prevents indigestion.
- Since it is wheat-free, its good for people with gluten-allergy.
- A proven solution for hiccups, it restores the acid balance in the stomach and eases irritating spasms of the diaphragm.
