A juicy pear in the heat is pleasant. This fruit's naturally sweet taste makes it a good between-meal snack.
It provides 100 calories, fibre, potassium, copper, vitamin C, and vitamin K. (per MyFoodData).
Pears are rich in flavonoids and other antioxidants that may prevent diabetes and stroke, according to Nutrition Today.
These summer fruits include soluble and insoluble fibre, including antioxidant-rich lignins.
Soluble fibre produces a gel in the stomach, increasing fullness. Cleveland Clinic says it also functions as a prebiotic, nourishing beneficial intestinal flora.
Both forms of fibre enhance digestive health and may lessen heart disease, hemorrhoid, and diabetes risk.
