Apple has cooling thermal nature, sweet-and-sour flavor. It reduces heat, especially summer heat and, creates fluids for the body in general, but particularly to moisten dryness and cool heat in the lungs—protects the lungs from cigarette smoking; stimulates appetite. Apple also has the property to remedy indigestion—this ability is due in part to the presence of malefic and tartaric acids in apples, which hold back the growth of ferments and disease-producing bacteria in the digestive tract. It contains pectin, which removes cholesterol, toxic metals such as lead and mercury, and the remains of radiation. This fruit is beneficial for low blood sugar conditions and emotional depression associated with it. A poultice of grated apple over the eyes for twenty minutes helps relieve inflammation and irritations such as sunburn or a eye disorder called "pink eye." Apples and their juice are also cleansing and favorable for the liver and gallbladder by softening gallstones.
There are a series of nutrients that decrease cholesterol and saturated fat in the blood and arteries. These are lecithin, vitamin E and vitamin C , and niacin . These nutrients function efficiently in cleaning the arteries when taken in whole food. Lecithin is found in most legumes , particularly in soybeans. Both soybeans and mung beans are recommended by numerous researches and mainly by Chinese medicine for cleansing arteries, although nearly all beans, peas, and lentils are helpful. This is partly because legumes are a good source of choline, a lipotrophic agent that controls fat metabolism ; choline is also a main component of lecithin. When heat symptoms occur with arterial problems , the cooling qualities of soy and mung bean sprouts are useful. These sprouts are usually found in grocery stores and markets with well-stocked produce. Sprouts are also an excellent source of vitamin C, as well as cabbage, parsley, bell peppers, and citrus.
