Adults who eat apple products have lower risk for metabolic syndrome

“Dr. Victor Fulgoni analyzed the data, specifically looking at the association between consumption of apples and apple products, nutrient intake and various physiological parameters related to metabolic syndrome. When compared to non-consumers, adult apple product consumers had a 27% decreased likelihood of being diagnosed with metabolic syndrome. . .

In addition to having a 30% decreased likelihood for elevated diastolic blood pressure and a 36% decreased likelihood for elevated systolic blood pressure, apple product consumers also had a 21% reduced risk of increased waist circumference – all predictors of cardiovascular disease and an increased likelihood of metabolic syndrome. Additionally, adult apple product consumers had significantly reduced C-reactive protein levels, another measurable marker related to cardiovascular risk. . .”

Personally, I think that at least part of the apple’s benefits might be part of what is mentioned in the last paragraph. -jj

“. . . apple product consumers’ diets were healthier than non-consumers – they had an overall greater intake of fruit and key nutrients, including dietary fiber, vitamins A and C, calcium and potassium. These consumers also ate less total fat, saturated fat, discretionary fat and added sugars. “

    Is anyone interested in doing “Running Angie” tomorrow at 4pm? Craig, when are you planning on doing it? If everyone is going to do it today I’ll do it as well (I’m at work today). I would just rather do that brutal of a WOD with others, i.e. share in the suffering.
    BTW, did anyone else run the 10k besides Jorgy and I? I suggest making a “white board” spot for the 10k, and maybe the “DCF 400”.

    Actually Running Angie is with 1 mile in between each thing. i scaled it for some of my weekend clients because it was so damn hot.

  • Craig

    Thank you, Jorgy, thank you! (For scaling R.A.)

    Darren, Deya and I did running Angie today – brutal. The last 800m was an old man shuffle gradually increasing to an Olympic style speed walk.

    Darren: 31:07
    Craig: 38:07 (?)
    Deya: 41:10

    Running Angie with 1mi intervals would take an hour at least.
