As part of this week’s blog in our “herb series,” we’ll be talking about one of our favorite fruits instead: pear. We include dehydrated pears in some of our teas, creating a sweet flavor for our customers to enjoy during every season. Now let’s get to the health benefits of this fall favorite.
Dr. Kristal's research has found that pears do wonders for your digestive tract, acting as a prebiotic for cultivating healthy gut bacteria. They are also filled with antioxidants that can vary based on the type of pear you’re eating. For example, red pears are an excellent source of anthocyanin, which aids in heart health, while green pears contain lutein and zeaxanthin, making them supportive for your eye health.
It’s also true that all pears, no matter the variety, can actually reduce your risk of heart disease, keep your cholesterol at a healthy level, and decrease inflammation.
