Nutritional benefits of dried pears

Dried pears don’t just taste scrumptious. They are also abundant in vitamins and minerals for your health and well-being.

High in vitamin C - Vitamin C is vital for collagen, which supports the strength and elasticity in tendons, tissue, muscle, bones, hair and skin. It’s also a super-powered anti-oxidant to protect your cells against oxidative stress. 

Contain vitamin K - Vitamin K isn’t a well-known vitamin in the health and beauty space. However, it’s critical for your essential organs, including your liver, kidneys, and heart, for better blood flow and optimal energy.

Source of potassium - Potassium manages muscle movement, which you need for everyday functioning. That means anything from sports activities to painting, cooking, and typing. It also balances blood pressure, aiding your physical and mental health.

Contains folate - Folate is crucial for growth and development and is often mentioned as a supplement for a healthy pregnancy. However, it also gives you energy and manages your moods. So, eating dried pears will help reduce tiredness and benefit your mental health. 

Contains copper- The mineral copper increases energy by enabling the body to absorb iron efficiently. It also enhances blood circulation and builds tissue.
