Health Benefits

Pears are antioxidants and anti-inflammatory rich!  They're full of phytonutrients like

vitamin E and omega-3 fatty acids.  Studies show that a regular intake of pears can

actually reduce risk of chronic pain because of the rich antioxidant and anti-

inflammatory properties.  Pears are also rich in dietary fiber making them the

perfect fruit to reduce and prevent the risk of type 2 diabetes.  Flavonols found in

pears can also help improve insulin sensitivity.  The fibers in pears also help

reduce cancer risks!  The fiber in pears bind together bile acids and secondary bile

acids but this is a good thing.  Excessive secondary bile acids can lead to

colorectal cancer.  Pears are amazing and should definitely be incorporated in our

lives.

Apples are an amazing versatile fruit as they can help aid and prevent much dis-

ease.  For one thing, apples can keep your teeth clean and white as they produce

more saliva and reduce tooth decay by lowering bacteria.  Apples may also be able

to prevent Alzheimer’s and fight aging affects on the brain recent studies show.

Not only do they protect against Alzheimer’s, but against Parkinson’s.  Studies

have shown that people who eat higher amounts of fruit and other high-fiber

soluble foods gain a protection against Parkinson’s.  Apples have also been

researched and proven to prevent many cancers including pancreatic cancer by up

to 23 percent.  Apples also decrease your risk for diabetes, reduce cholesterol,

healthy heart, prevent gallstones, relieve diarrhea and constipation, control

weight, detoxify liver, boost immune system, and avert hemorrhoids.  Eat an apple

a day, to keep the doctor away.
