Pears are one of the top sources for dietary fiber. They are also great sources for complex carbohydrates. With these two major qualities combined, this provides a slow and steady release of energy into the blood stream from the digestive tract. Pears also contain high levels of phyto-nutrients and anti-cancer properties making them very attractive to consume regularly.

Dietary Fiber

Present in plant foods, is metabolically processed to enhance bowel health. Dietary fiber can combine with bile acids, which are primarily comprised of cholesterol, that then help with their elimination. Fiber is never absorbed by the body, rather it acts as a major contributor to healthy digestion and clearances of unwanted high levels of toxins and cholesterol.
Fiber is your friend in everything!
