How apple pectin boosts your overall health

There are numerous reasons why our Upple drinks are good for you. One of them being their apple pectin content. Now, you might have heard us talk about the benefits of apple pectin before – but, what is pectin? And how is it good for you?

What is apple pectin?

Pectin is a soluble fibre found in the cell walls of plants. For apples, this component is what gives the fruit its structure and firmness, and as they ripen, their pectin content decreases, which contributes to the softening of the fruit.

Apples are a particularly rich source of pectin, even as they continue to ripen. But, if you’re wondering what apple has the most pectin, the answer to that is: the Granny Smith. 

The benefits of apple pectin

Apple pectin has many benefits for your health – from supporting your digestive health to boosting immunity. Some key benefits include:

  • Improved digestive and gut health: Apple pectin acts as a prebiotic when ingested, nourishing the good bacteria in your stomach. This will help promote a healthy digestive system by supporting regular bowel movements, increasing nutrient absorption and relieving constipation. 
  • Cholesterol management: Studies show that apple pectin can help reduce bad cholesterol associated with increased risks of heart disease. 
  • Blood sugar regulation: Apple pectin slows down your bloodstream’s sugar absorption, helping to stabilise your blood sugar levels. This is particularly beneficial for those with diabetes or who are looking to manage their blood sugar levels more effectively. 
  • Weight loss: The fibre content of apple pectin can increase feelings of fullness, meaning fewer calories are consumed daily. This can support weight loss and even weight management. 
  • Immune system support: Apple pectin is also believed to be able to help strengthen the immune system by helping the body enhance its natural defence mechanism and protect against diseases and infections.
