4. Good for your gut

An average pear contains about 20% of the fibers we need daily. As you probably know, fibers are good for your digestive system. The fibers in pears stay unchanged as they go through your digestive tracts. One benefit of this is that it feeds the healthy gut bacteria and clean your intestines from the inside. Pears also act as a mild laxative which can help with constipation.

5. Better skin

Let’s be honest, who doesn’t want better, glowing skin? Forget all the creams and masks, just eat more pears. The fiber in pears ensures that the blood sugar level does not fluctuate too much meaning the collagen in your skin is not damaged. In addition, pears can also help in the fight against wrinkles. The fruit also contains antioxidants like vitamin C, vitamin K, and copper, which all help your skin stay healthy. This will keep your skin looking smoother, brighter, and healthier.
