Bramley Apples

Bramley Apples. It's a true saying, "An Apple a Day keeps the Doctor away"
The Bramley apple is probably one of the best cooking apples in the world and if left on the tree long enough can be an excellent eating apple too.

Bramley apples are a powerful source of antioxidants, including polyphenols, flavonoids, and vitamin C, as well as a good source of fibre, and potassium.
One large apple has 5.7 grams of fibre. Fibre aids digestion and gives a feeling of fullness when eating. Diets that are high in fibre have been highly correlated with a reduction in the risk of developing heart disease.
The antioxidant content of apples has been linked to the prevention of lung cancer, improved pulmonary (lung) function, and the prevention of type II diabetes.
The vitamin A helps maintain vision and keeps your immune system healthy. Iron prevents anaemia and potassium keeps up muscle function.
Apples contain flavonoids called quercetin, which has been shown in numerous studies to have anti-cancer properties.
