A relative of the apple, pears are known for their super thin skin and juicy flesh. It has many varieties, like brown, yellow, green, or red. While shaped more often like a bell than round, the pear is an excellent source of water-soluble fiber. It has Vitamin A, B1, B2, C, E, and folic acid.

Because of its high folate content, this makes it a must-have fruit for pregnant women. Iron content is also high, another reason pregnant women are advised to eat pears.

Aside from its rich nutritional content, drinking pear juice twice a day can increase your protection against throat problems and provide nourishment as well. Mix pears with honey and blend if you already have a sore throat. Warm up the pear juice together with the honey and drink up to relieve yourself from aching throat and other inflammation on your throat and tonsils.
