Pear and Sweet Lime

They look very much the same in COLOR! But there are pears that is yellow and crispy to the bite. But this green one is more softer but thicker in skin although the consistency is just the same like the yellow colored pear which is grainy in flesh and looking like a bell.

Fruits not that popular but is beneficial to our health

Pear is rich in vitamins A, C, E and other B complex vitamins. It is said to have anti oxidant which is good for our body. It combats carcinogen, high blood pressure and lowers cholesterol. Pears are said to be good for our colon and has pectin which is a mild laxative to regulate bowel movements.

It is said to be great in relieving fever by drinking a glass of pear juice. When it comes to pregnant women, they may also benefit in eating pears because it has folic acid which may prevent neural tube defects in infants.

Sweet lime on the other hand belongs to the citrus family which is also good in the digestive system because of flavonoids. Sweet lime has anti congestive properties good for treating neausea and flushing out uric acid in the body.

I am not suggesting that you need to combine the two in a juice drink. It just so happen that I have these two fruits available as hubby bought it last two days ago and I said why not share some informations about these two great fruits which we often neglect because we will go for other colorful and mouth watering fruits such as apple, grapes, orange and watermelon.
