Benefits Of Eating Pears

While each different type of pear has a distinct taste and shape, they all have an abundance of benefits you can reap when consumed.  Since this month is National Pear Month, there’s no better time to head to the grocery store and pick some up.  Below are some reasons you should purchase a bushel of pears today: 


  • Pears are a great source of fiber, with one alone containing nearly a quarter of the recommended daily amount.  
  • They’re a low glycemic fruit, meaning they won’t drastically spike your blood sugar levels.
  • Pears are chock full of vitamins and minerals such as potassium, vitamin c, electrolytes, and antioxidants.
  • The easily digestible complex carbs found in pears make it perfect for an energy boost before a workout, and a great means of recovery afterward.
