//PEARS// Cool, sweet and slightly sour, pears act on the LUNGS and STOMACH. They help produce fluids in the body while lubricating dryness, dispersing phlegm and clearing heat.
//DID YOU KNOW// You've no doubt heard someone say that cloudy fruit juices containing fruit pulp provide better nourishment than clear fruit juices that have had their pulp removed through filtering. Scientists have now proven that statement to be correct with respect to pear juice. With their pulp removed, pear juices were determined to lose up to 40% of their total phenolic phytonutrients, and to have significantly reduced antioxidant capacity. "Cloudy" pear juices (technically referred to as "high turbidity" juices) emerged as the superior juice type in terms of nutrient content as well as antioxidant benefits.
