Pears for your Health

A fruit of the Rosacie family of trees, the pear is abundant in antioxidants, flavonoids and dietary fiber while being fat and cholesterol-free and low in calories. A university analyzed the pulp and skin of the Bartlett and Starkrimson varieties of the pear to ascertain the probiotic potential of the compounds present in the fruit. The researchers found that the peel (as compared to pulp) of the pear exhibited phenolic content, whereas the pulp was high in antioxidant activity.

And as further study observed that fermented whole pear juice exerted an inhibitory effect on the stomach ulcer bacterium, Heicobacter pylori. so in conclusion  "Pear has potential for phenolic linked management of type 2 diabetes associated hyperglycemia and hypertension". Antioxidnats and phenolis in pears possibly balance gut microbiota as well as manage early-stage type 2 diabetes and hypertension, according to the
It's great that this study was done to see the balance of beneficial bacterial activity in the digestive process, as our gut helps our body in over all health. And plus this is not a pill but your actually eating a fruit, I say the more you eat as much raw fruits and veggies the better.

So I would recommend adding Pears to your morning regime, I myself do their are a lot of varieties to choose from and when they are in season I defiantly add this to my regime.If you haven't tried them give it a try just make sure they are ripe enough to eat or ask your produce person for help, on how to pick a good pear.
