The substances contained in the peel and pulp of apples have a beneficial effect on neurogenesis and brain function.

Experts from the University of Queensland and the German Center for Neurodegenerative Diseases have found that eating apples stimulates the formation of new brain cells, improving memory and cognitive function. 

In a study in mice, scientists cultured stem cells from the brains of adult mice and then added quercetin or 2-hydroxybenzoic acid, phytonutrients found in apples. 

As it turned out, the high concentration of phytonutrients in apples stimulates neurogenesis – the formation of new neurons. 

“Phytonutrients such as resveratrol and epigallocatechin-3-gallate (EGCG) may have beneficial effects on various organs, including the brain,” the study authors noted. 

According to them, the result is comparable to the effect of exercise, which is known to promote the formation of new neurons. 

Earlier it was reported that regular consumption of apples can help you lose more than five kilograms in a year.
