Only six months ago, the new scientifically proven, organic dried apple peel powder (DAPP) AppleActiv Organic was introduced as a new ingredient into the marketplace.

The powder is unique because it is a concentrated supply of the antioxidants, polyphenols and flavonoids found in apple peels. Better yet, the powder is created from apple peels that had traditionally been discarded, so this promotes sustainability.

AppleFactivApple peels contain up to six times more nutrients than the flesh does. By converting apple peels into powder form, an ingredient is created that is ideal for use in nutrition bars, shakes and drinks, smoothies, snacks, marinades, mixes and supplements.

According to a 12-week clinical study done on healthy people with moderate complaints of reduced joint range of motion and also discomfort, researchers found that when subjects consumed Organic DAPP (Dried Apple Peel Powder), they noticed an improved range of motion, reduced joint discomfort, and they noticed improved serum antioxidant proactive status.

appleactiv for joint healthThe study evaluated healthy people with moderate complaints of reduced joint range of motion (ROM) in well-defined areas, and associated chronic discomfort were selected for the study. The subjects consumed 4.5 grams DAPP daily for 12 weeks, with evaluations at baseline, 2, 4, 8, and 12 weeks. Each evaluation included measurements of:

  • Cellular Antioxidant Protection capacity (CAP-e bioassay)
  • 17 distinct ROM measurements
  • Joint discomfort evaluated through Visual Analogue Scales (VAS) 

The results were:

  • Improved antioxidant protection.
    Subjects demonstrated a statistically significant improvement in serum antioxidant protective status. This improvement was measured by the CAP-e bioassay, including several inflammation markers.
  • Improved joint mobility (range of motion).
    Subjects exhibited improved ROM, with some areas improving in as little as two weeks and all areas showing improvement by 12 weeks.
  • Reduced joint discomfort.
    Reductions in joint discomfort were statistically significant after 4 weeks (p<0.05) and were highly significant by the end of the 12-week period.

Participants on DAPP experienced a statistically significant reduction in joint pain after 4 weeks, and highly significant results after 12 weeks.

A recent study by the British Medical Journal showed that 8,500 vascular deaths could be prevented or delayed by either eating one apple a day, or by taking a Cholesterol-reduction drug, or a statin, each day.

Eating apples and taking statins have a similar result on vascular health. However, the study added that “choosing apples rather than statins may [also help] avoid more than a thousand excess cases of myopathy and more than 12,000 excess diabetes diagnoses.”

“We find that a 150 year old proverb is able to match modern medicine and is likely to have fewer side effects,” the study stated in regards to the adage that ‘an apple a day keeps the doctor away.’
