One of the most common garden trees is the pear. And its taste is not comparable to the fruits of other garden plants.

A little about the history of the plant
The first mentions of pears date back to the prehistoric period. There is no exact date when exactly people began to use this fruit as a food product. Based on the statements of historical sources, we can conclude that the pear has existed for almost three thousand years. Its presence is found in Switzerland and Italy. Homer described the fruit of the pear tree in his immortal poem The Odyssey.
In ancient times, the Persians and Romans knew how to plant and grow pear trees. Thanks to them, the plant and its fruits became famous on the European continent.
The first information about this plant in Russia belongs to the period of history when Ivan the Terrible ruled.
Not infrequently biting off a piece of juicy pulp, we think: what vitamins are in the pear?
Answering this question, I would like to list the vitamins present in fruits.
And so, when we eat pears, vitamins enter the body:
- groups B - B1, B2, B5, B6, B9,
As you can see, the fruit contains a wide range of vitamins.
Hence, a natural question arises: what vitamins does the pear contain more? Naturally, the amount of vitamins is different for each of them. The first place is occupied by vitamin C. Its amount in 100 grams of the product is 5 milligrams!
The second place is taken by vitamin E - 0.4 milligrams, and the third is B5 - 0.05 milligrams.
The following immediately arises: what are the benefits of the vitamins contained in the pear for the body?
Let's see how they are useful:
- A - retinol - a powerful antioxidant, helps to increase immunity, is necessary for the growth of hair and nails, helps to improve twilight vision, and accelerates the processes of phagocytosis;
- B1 - thiamine - a vitamin of pep - is necessary for the production of neurotransmitters, supports the health of the heart and internal organs;
- B2 - riboflavin - is necessary for the formation of erythrocytes, new nerve cells and connections between them, the assimilation of iron;
- B5 - pantothenic acid - promotes the assimilation of proteins, fats and carbohydrates;
- B6 - pyridoxine - is indispensable for ensuring high-quality protein metabolism, production of hydrochloric acid, synthesis of hormones, regulates cholesterol, supports heart function, blood pressure, takes an active part in the production of dopamine and serotonin, is needed for immunity and the nervous system;
- B9 - folic acid - is necessary for the normal development of the fetus during pregnancy;
- C - ascorbic acid - participates in the biological processes of the body, the number of which exceeds three hundred;
- E - tocopherol - antioxidant.
Based on this, the conclusion suggests itself: because of the vitamins that are present in them, pears are very useful for pregnant women.
In addition, the composition of the fruit includes trace elements - potassium, iron, phosphorus, copper, some types contain: boron, sulfur, selenium, cobalt, iodine, molybdenum, silicon, zinc.
Pears also contain sugars: glucose, sucrose, fructose. Fructose is present in the greatest amount, which makes the fruits useful for functional disorders of the pancreas.
Regular use of pear tree fruits in food helps to strengthen the immune system, preserve beauty and health for many years. Although pears are sweeter than apples, they contain less sugar.
Thanks to the vitamins and trace elements present in the composition of the fruit, they have choleretic, anti-inflammatory, diuretic, expectorant, astringent, antipyretic and strengthening properties.
They contribute to the normalization of digestion, increase the secretory function of the stomach.
Pears will be useful for:
- inflammation of the bladder;
- pathologies of the gallbladder;
- sleep disorders;
- kidney disease;
- diabetes mellitus;
- high cholesterol;
- liver failure;
Pears can be eaten as a preventive measure against gastritis. They are able to stabilize the heart rate, stimulate blood circulation, and strengthen the cardiovascular system.
Fiber, which is part of the composition, reduces the content of bad cholesterol, promotes the elimination of toxins, heavy metal salts, and stabilizes the work of the pancreas.
All pear lovers need to be aware of the consequences that may result from their misuse. It is highly undesirable to eat fruits on an empty stomach, because the fiber they contain irritates the stomach lining.
It is better to eat pears half an hour after a meal. You can not drink pears with water - this can provoke intestinal upset. The combination of pears with meat can harm the body.
Older people should avoid eating tart varieties. They are poorly absorbed. In this case, it is better to bake or boil the fruit.
