We continue our journey into the health benefits of juicing recipes with various fruits and vegetables with pears. Not all pears are shaped, well, like pears, but all pears have similar health benefits that you need in your daily diet. Let’s take a look at some of the benefits of juicing pears!

Fight the coldPears are loaded with Vitamin C which helps your body develop white blood cells which are so important in fending of various types of sickness. Adding pears to your juicing recipe can help you get more Vitamin C than you would from eating a whole pears because the juicing process extracts more Vitamins. One cup of pear juice contains 12.4 milligrams of vitamin C, compared with 7 milligrams in one serving of whole pear.
Support healthy skin and hair
Pears are great for hair and skin health because they are a substantial source of the trace mineral copper. According to Louise Tremblay, M.S. Biology, “Copper makes up a part of melanin, the pigment that gives your skin and hair their color and provides natural protection from the sun.” Adding pears to your juicing recipes for weight loss can provide 243 of the 900 micrograms of copper you require daily.
We hope this has helped you see some of the important health benefits of juicing pears. In addition, pears provide a sweet flavor that is a great addition to any vegetable juicing recipe with kale, spinach, or other leafy greens.
