Food with high water content is highly prescribed by doctors to stay hydrated during the summers, a season that summons a wave of soaring temperatures, higher than 40-degrees.
A much-loved fruit in India, apples are hydrating heros’ in such a situation. A heatwave can affect human health in a varied manner and to maintain ideal body temperature in this soaring summer, one must remain adequately hydrated, be protected from the sun and maintain hygiene.
Working professionals and people who must step out in summers, are prone to the heatwave impact. Pediatric experts and doctors agree on the benefits of drinking water and eating fruits, especially, apples. ‘An apple a day, keeps the doctor away’ is true as they are rich in a number of vitamins with great anti-inflammatory benefits and many other essential minerals. Washington Apple Commission spells how apples can prove to be a summer-friendly fruit.
People often don’t realise the danger of exposing themselves to extreme heat. Older adults, young children, and people with chronic illnesses are most at greater risk for serious problems. The nutrition benefits of apples may help not only in avoiding such illnesses but may also protect against many such conditions.
As popular as apples are as a fruit, they are enriched in antioxidants, dietary fibers, vitamins and a range of other nutrients that are greatly beneficial in maintaining good health. The fruit is rich in soluble fibers which may help prevent several health conditions and may lower the risk of major diseases such as heat strokes, diabetes and cancer.
The soluble fiber also promotes weight loss and improves gut health. The prebiotic effects of apples help feed the good bacteria in the gut, thus, improving digestion.
Apples are made of 85 percent water and contain vitamins, fibres and antioxidants. A high fibre content is a particularly beneficial property of apples, as improper digestion is a major health concern in the tropical climatic region. Apples are also enriched in antioxidants that help protect the lungs from oxidative damage and help oxygen flow through the blood.
Make interesting snacks, dessert, beverages and savoury meals with this miraculous fruit during summers.

Apple is reportedly working on smart glasses called Apple Glass which is expected to be sold for a relatively low price of $499.
Apple Glass will pair with an iPhone and be controlled by gestures on and in front of the glasses, according to Jon Prosser, a reliable Apple insider.
Prosser said that an early prototype for Apple Glass featured wireless charging and LiDAR and Apple was initially planning on unveiling Apple Glass later this year, at its September event.
However, the ongoing global health crisis may make that not a possibility, so Apple’s plans to unveil the new product could be forced back to March 2021.

Apple Glasses could feature a high-resolution display and are likely to be reliant on the iPhone for processing power to keep them slim and lightweight. The glasses are expected to run a new operating system, rOS (or reality OS).
Apart from Kuo, Taiwanese site DigiTimes and The Information recently claimed that Apple’s AR glasses could launch by 2022 as suppliers work to ramp up development. (IANS)
Health screenings, limiting density, and ensuring strict adherence to social distancing are some of the measures that Apple said it has taken in its global supply chain to address COVID-19’s challenges and to ensure people are able to return to work safely.
Apple said it is working with its suppliers around the world on a range of protections suited to the circumstances in each country.
These details were revealed in Apple’s annual “Supplier Responsibility Progress Report” released on Thursday which also included a letter from Sabih Khan, Apple’s Senior Vice President of Operations.
“We put people first in everything we do — and require everyone we work with to do the same — because we want to uphold the highest standards,” Khan said in the letter.
“We’re requiring the use of personal protective equipment — both during work and in all common areas — and have worked together to implement enhanced deep cleaning protocols and deploy masks and sanitizers,” he added.
Apple said it has partnered with suppliers to redesign and reconfigure factory floorplans where needed and to implement flexible working hours — including staggered work shifts — to maximise interpersonal space.
“We continue to work closely with leading medical and privacy experts to develop advanced health and safety protocols,” Khan said.
The ‘Supplier Responsibility Progress Report’ which is a look back at the progress it made last year said that 19.4 million supplier employees were trained on workplace rights since 2008.
Apple said its health and wellness education training programme expanded to Vietnam, joining China and India.
Over one million supplier employees have received training through the programme, it added.
As part of its “Responsible Sourcing” programme, the “Salmon Gold” project developed new mining methods while achieving habitat restoration.
