With some disorders of the stomach, it is recommended to replace the fresh pear on juice, because the fruit fibers are very coarse and will have an additional irritant effect.

Contraindications and harm from fruit

But not always a pear is equally useful.

There are some cases in which all of its useful properties turn into harmful.

Fruits should not be eaten on an empty stomach, and immediately after drinking, drink water.

This not only can cause colic, but also constipation, since this fruit has a very coarse fibrous structure.

Therefore, there is a dense and fatty food after it is strictly not recommended.

Pear can not be eaten with frequent disorders of the stomach, but you can, as already mentioned above, replace it with the juice of this fruit.

Elderly people are advised to bake pears before consumption or to choose very soft varieties, as this can cause some problems in the intestinal tract.

Chemical composition of pear

So, if a pear helps with so many diseases, it’s easy to come to the conclusion that its chemical composition is extremely rich.

It includes not only a large number of B vitamins, but also vitamins A, C, E.

Among other things, the fruit contains mineral substances, such as, for example, calcium, iron, phosphorus and sodium, copper, fluorine, zinc, iodine, cobalt.

Thanks to the colossal composition of unique vitamins, the pear tree fruit is among the ten most useful fruits.

Pear or Jerusalem artichoke

An earth pear is a plant called Jerusalem artichoke.

Its application is quite wide, since it has received a special place in the recipes of traditional medicine.

Decoctions made on the basis of Jerusalem artichoke are able to relieve gastric spasms and colic, help reduce blood sugar, treat anemia and obesity.

In addition, when Jerusalem artichoke is consumed, blood pressure is lowered, headaches go away.

The vitamin composition of this plant is somewhat similar to the fruit itself, therefore it has similar properties also.

Jerusalem artichoke perfectly helps to cope with rheumatism and gout, has the ability to remove heavy salts from the body, as it has a pronounced diuretic effect.

Application of a pear in cosmetology

Since this fruit is rich in various vitamins and minerals, it is also used as a basis for various kinds of cosmetics.

Moreover, masks and scrubs, in which fruit is used, can be done even at home.

The mask made from Jerusalem artichoke has the property of smoothing not only small, but deep wrinkles, so they will be extremely useful for women, whose age has long crossed over thirty.

Very useful masks made from fruits of pear tree owners of oily skin and wide pores.

In just fifteen minutes of application it helps to get rid of unaesthetic shine, narrow the pores and give the skin of the face an even color and radiance.

Lotions made from pears help not only to quickly cleanse the skin, but also nourish it with nutrients.

Pear leaves in folk medicine

Minerals contained in this fruit, of course, it is enough, but here the concentration, for example, of vitamin C is still not so great.

But it’s not just a fruit that can be used to treat certain diseases!

Pear leaves, for example, contain more of this vitamin than the fruit itself.

Usually a special broth is prepared from them, which is taken in small doses.

It helps with various infections, inflammations and disorders of tissue regeneration, since the leaves have even greater antiseptic properties.

There is another way of applying pear tree leaves

They gather in the spring, when they are not so dusty and do not have time to absorb the harmful substances from the environment.

Then they are thoroughly washed under running water and dried in the sun.

The dried leaves are grinded into flour and taken one tablespoon a day before meals, washed down with plenty of water.

This helps to reduce sweating, which is especially suitable for people with excessive sweating.

Mineral deposit for pregnant women

During pregnancy this fruit is especially useful for expectant mothers.

It contains a large amount of minerals necessary for the good development of a child in the womb.

On a woman’s body, however, he is able to exert no less influence.

  1. The pear helps reduce the temperature. It is known that during pregnancy, a woman’s body temperature rises and daily can reach 37,5 degrees. Of course, this is normal, because the body is forced to work for two, supplying nutrients not only to the mother, but also to the child. But still many feel unwell at this temperature. Since pills during the period of bearing a child are forbidden to drink, this fruit will provide an irreplaceable benefit, reducing the temperature.

My children just love pears. They simply “do not tear off your ears”. Therefore, I also allow them to eat as much as they want. I never thought that there are any contraindications to eating pears, although they are not essential.

I agree, the pear is quite useful. It is often eaten by athletes (bodybuilders), as it has a lot of iron and calcium. But on the other hand, many pears are not recommended, because of the stones.
