AppleActiv DAPP®

Dried Apple Peel Powder

About AppleActiv DAPP

The peel is the most nutritious part of the apple. In fact, apple peel  has been shown to contain up to six times the polyphenols including flavonoids as apple flesh, giving it tremendous antioxidant activity.*[i]

Made from 100 percent organic apples sourced exclusively from America, AppleActiv DAPP delivers the phyto-nutrients and fiber of apple peels in a neutral-tasting, easy-to-blend dry powder suitable for dietary supplements and functional foods. It is manufactured through a patented process, developed by the Cornell University Department of Food Science, which carefully dries and grinds the dried peels to a fine powder  to preserve the nutritional properties.

A 12-week pilot human clinical study found that Appleactiv DAPP[ii]:

  • Supports joint comfort*
  • Encourages healthy range of motion*
  • Promotes healthy joint function*

In addition, AppleActiv DAPP has been shown through original in vitro research to: 

  • Scavenge free radical species*
  • Increases excitatory cytokines and decreases inhibitory cytokines*

As a result of these two actions, it may protect the body against oxidative stress and promote healthy aging.*

Mechanism of Action

Apple peel has been shown in vitro research and in vivo (human)  research  to down-regulate inflammatory biomarkers such as COX-2, IL-6,  and TNF-Alpha, NF-K-B, and lipo-oxygenase and induce positive biomarkers such as Nrf2 and PCG-1-alpha.*[iii],[iv]


AppleActiv DAPP is manufactured following quality control measures in a GMP-certified facility. It contains no gluten, dairy, additives, dyes, synthetic vitamins, chemical preservatives or GMOs and is FDA-GRAS. AppleActiv DAPP has been tested on human subjects, with no adverse effects noted.
