That daily apple might keep the skin doctor away, according to the University of Kentucky and China Medical University. Researchers found that quercitrin—a form of natural plant extract quercetin—helps protect skin from ultraviolet B (or burning) rays. “I don’t suggest taking quercitrin as a daily supplement,” insists lead researcher Zhuo Zhang, PhD. Rather, he recommends the following: “Eat whole apples with the peels on, since peels contain a large amount of quercitrin.” Keep an eye out for sunscreens with apple peel extract.
