Pears are sweet crisp fruits that just taste like freshness they come in different types from country to country and all of them have different levels of sweetness. pears are full of fiber called pectin, it is mostly present in the peel so it’s best if you have the pear whole without peeling it, this fiber helps form the bulk of your stool and helps you have regular bowel movements, along with its wonderful action on the gut microbiome as it helps it proliferate and enhances your gut health as well as keep you full for longer.

Pears are full of polyphenol antioxidants that help you relieve some of the oxidative stress on your cells it really depends on the color of your pears if they are on the reddish side they contain anthocyanins and if they are on the greenish side they mostly contain lutein and zeaxanthin but all have wonderful anti-inflammatory properties and some cancer-fighting action there is another antioxidant called quercetin present in the peel which has been proven to lower the risk of getting heart disease and improving the lipid profile by lowering LDL cholesterol levels in the blood.

Pears are full of copper, vitamin C, and potassium which all play a very important role in enhancing your immunity and keeping your nerves and muscles healthy along with some iron, calcium, magnesium, and zinc.

Pears are wonderful choices for diabetics and people who are trying to lose weight since they are very low on calories, and are packed with water and fiber which will definitely make you feel full for longer periods of time.

You can just enjoy pears as is with the peel and all, you can chop them finely and add them to salads to add a wonderful hint of sweetness and crunch, they go very well in desserts you can poach them to bring out their natural sugars then add some brown sugar and cinnamon or nutmeg and brulee the top or maybe make an apple pie with pears instead they are as delicious as apples if not better.
