Can a Pear a Day Keep the Doctor Away?

Yes! Although apples get a lot of attention for their health benefits, pears pack a punch when it comes to healthful foods. Pears are one of the highest fiber filled fruits, providing six grams per medium-sized fruit helping you meet nearly 25% of your fiber daily requirement. A diet high in fiber has many health benefits, including reducing cholesterol levels, preventing colon cancer, and reducing constipation to name just a few. Pears also contain a fair amount of vitamins C, K, B2 (riboflavin), B3 (niacin), and B6 (pyridoxine) and minerals calcium, magnesium, potassium, copper, and manganese; all of these are important in supporting your immune system and preventing disease.
