1 Cup a Day Will Clear Your Waste Away – Dr Alan Mandell, DC

Pears are another fruit rich in fiber, with about 5.5 grams of fiber in a medium-sized fruit (about 178 grams). That’s 22% of the RDI for fiber (14Trusted Source).
Alongside the fiber benefits, pears are particularly high in fructose and sorbitol compared with other fruits (15Trusted Source).
Fructose is a type of sugar that some people absorb poorly. This means that some of it ends up in the colon, where it pulls in water by osmosis, stimulating a bowel movement (16Trusted Source).
Pears also contain the sugar alcohol sorbitol. Like fructose, sorbitol is not well absorbed by the body and acts as a natural laxative by bringing water into the intestines (15Trusted Source).
You can include pears in your diet in a wide variety of ways. Eat them raw or cooked, with cheese, or include them in salads, savory dishes, and baked goods.
