The health benefit of pears
  • Pears are packed full of nutrients such as fibre, anti-oxidants, minerals and vitamins
  • 100g of fibre provides 3.1 g of fibre. Regular consumption of fibre may offer protection against colon cancer. Most of the fibre in them is non soluble polysaccharide (NSP), which functions as a good bulk laxative in the gut. Additionally, its gritty fibre content binds to cancer-causing toxins and chemicals in the colon, protecting its mucous membrane from contact with these compounds.
  • In addition, pears are one of the very low calorie fruits; providing just 58 calories per 100g. A low calorie but high fibre diet may help bring significant reduction in body weight, and blood LDL cholesterol levels.
  • Pear is a good source of minerals such as copper, iron, potassium, manganese and magnesium as well as B-complex vitamins such as folates, riboflavin and pyridoxine (vitamin B-6).
  • Although not well documented, pears are among the least allergenic of all the fruits. For the same reason, they often recommended by health practitioners as a safe alternative in the preparation of food products for allergic persons.
  • Pears have been suggested in various traditional medicines in the treatment of colitis, chronic gallbladder disorders, arthritis, and gout.
