We all have heard the saying, ‘An apple a day, keeps the doctor away’. The saying is true because apples are loaded with a bundle of nutrients including vitamin C, fibre and potassium.
All these work wonders in supporting our health, but too much of them can have a negative impact on health. Yes, too much of any good thing can also affect your health negatively.
1. Digestive issues
Fibre improves our digestive health but too much of it can backfire, leading to bloating and constipation. People need between 20 to 40 grams of fibre per day, depending on their age and gender. Going above 70 grams is considered going overboard.
Though for that one needs to eat 15 apples, it’s important to keep in mind the other sources of fibre in your daily diet. So, if you are having a healthy diet with more than two apples a day, it can lead to some serious digestive troubles.
