Cider Health Benefits

Because fresh-pressed apple cider is made from whole apples, drinking cider conveys many of the same health benefits as eating an apple.

For example, University of California – Davis researchers reported in 2000 that eating apples or drinking apple juice/cider each day helped slow the oxidation process involved in the buildup of plaque that leads to heart disease. Study participants added two apples, or 12 ounces of apple juice/cider, to their daily diet. (Source: Journal of Medicinal Food, 2000, vol 3: pp 159-165.)
