It seems like everywhere I turn, avocado is in a new recipe or people are talking about how great it is. I ask myself, “Is avocado what it is all hyped up to be?” The answer is yes, and there is plenty of scientific research to prove it!
So, what is so unique about this food?
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 over 20% daily requirement of fiber. 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 important in supporting your immune system and preventing disease.
