Great for bones and blood circulation
Drinking pear juice boosts your intake of vitamin K, also called phylloquinone. Vitamin K helps maintain healthy bones as you age. It promotes the healthy growth of new bone tissue, decreasing your risk of developing bone fractures due to osteoporosis later in life. It also helps you form blood clots to prevent blood loss after injury. One cup of pear juice contains approximately 13.3 micrograms of phylloquinone, 11 and 15 percent of the recommended vitamin K intake for men and women, respectively. A serving of whole pear, by contrast, contains only 7.2 micrograms of vitamin K.
Stronger immune system
Pears’ vitamin C content helps your body produce infection-fighting white blood cells and also helps build strong blood vessels so that those cells can travel throughout your body. One cup of pear juice contains 12.4 milligrams of vitamin C, compared with 7 milligrams in one serving of whole pear. The vitamin C in one serving of pear juice represents 17 percent of the vitamin C intake for women or 14 percent for men.
Better skin and hair
Healthy hair and skin rely on your intake of copper, and drinking pear juice provides a source of this trace mineral. Copper makes up a part of melanin, the pigment that gives your skin and hair their color and provides natural protection from the sun. It also nourishes your nervous system and helps support nerve function. One cup of pear juice provides 243 of the 900 micrograms of copper you require daily, - more than the 132 micrograms supplied by one serving of whole pear.
