Benefits of Pears
Fights against free radicals
The presence of vitamin C, vitamin K and copper in pears fights against free radicals that damage our body cells. Pears contain a fair amount of vitamins C, K, B2, B3, and B6. For expecting or nursing moms, they also contain folate. Pears arent too shabby in the mineral department either, containing calcium, magnesium, potassium, copper, and manganese. Vitamin C and copper are antioxidant nutrients, so eating pears is good for your immune system, and may help prevent cancer.
