Apples are a super source of natural vitamin C which helps our bodies make collagen to keep skin smooth and looking young, and copper, an essential mineral that contributes to healthy skin by helping us make melanin, the brown pigment that protects skin from the sun's ultraviolet rays. Just as antioxidants are essential for neutralising UV induced free-radical damage, so Melanin provides our skin with powerful natural sun protection.
Apples also beat multi-million selling pharmaceuticals hands down at protecting your heart. Scientists at BHF Health Promotion Research Group, Nuffield Department of Population Health at the University of Oxford, England compared the effects of eating one apple a day to taking statin drugs (used to lower cholesterol levels) among British adults aged 50 and up. The study participants made no other dietary or lifestyle changes and their mortality rates from heart attacks and strokes were recorded.
The results of the study were published in BMJ. Scientists found that eating an apple a day or taking statin drugs daily resulted in an equivalent reduction of mortality, however the Scientists also found that prescribing statin drugs to everyone over the age of fifty would result in at least 1200 additional cases of (totally avoidable) short sightedness, 200 additional cases of rhabdomyolysis (dangerous muscular degeneration), and 12,300 additional cases of diabetes p/a. The great news is that if people ate a daily apple instead of taking statin drugs to prevent heart attacks and strokes, there would not be any increase in these serious conditions. 
It turns out there are over 900 studies proving the harmful side-effects of statin drugs do not just stop there; hundreds of reports also illustrate how statin pharmacauticals make you far more susceptible to Anemia, Pneumonia, Cancer, Cataracts, Memory loss, Altsheimers, Liver disease and general inflammation and weakening of the immune system. Statins also deplete the body's CoEnzyme Q10 reserves - and as CoQ10 is essential for the production of energy, especially in the heart, statins can also (this would be funny if it were not so tragic) increase the risk of heart attacks.
Apples on the other hand have ONLY really positive effects on our health, they help boost our overall immunity, protect against diabetes, support our digestive health and protect our heart.
..And apples really do grow on trees ;)
