A Prof. Liu researched the antioxidant effect in the apple and published his findings in Nature. He found something extraordinary. 100 grams of apple had 1500 mg of Vitamin C activity. When they chemically analysed the 100 grams, they found 5.7 milligrams of Vitamin C. The whole apple had 263 x more antioxidant potency than the isolated chemical.
Take home message: You cannot reduce health. Health is more than the sum of the parts. A synthetic supplement will never compete with real whole food.
