1.- Pears hydrate us . They contain more than 80% biological water that hydrates our cells. At the same time, due to the diuretic action of the pear, the function of the kidneys is favored and therefore the elimination of toxins from our body. Pear is a beneficial food to help purify us.

4.- Pear improves intestinal transit . Thanks to the insoluble fiber contained in the skin and the pulp of the pear, cholesterol levels can be reduced in a natural and healthy way.

The fiber in pears prevents us from having gastrointestinal problems, poor digestion, constipation and takes care of our colon.

5. It is rich in vitamin C . Being a fruit that contains good amounts of vitamin C, we are improving the absorption of iron and therefore preventing the appearance of iron deficiency anemia.
