Apple

How does Apple work?

Apples contain pectin, which helps bulk up the stool to treat diarrhea and constipation.

Are there safety concerns?

Apples are safe for most people when eaten without the seeds. No side effects are generally known or predicted to occur with apple fruit.

The apple seeds contain cyanide and are poisonous. If enough seeds are eaten, death can occur.

Do not use apple seeds if:
  • You are pregnant or breast-feeding.
