Day Six –  Pear & Apple Evening Regulator

We usually do not think of pears as one of the most nutritious of fruits, when in fact pears pack quite a punch when it comes to nutrient content as well as great taste. As far as juice recipes are concerned, pears are a great neutral sweetener for many combinations, especially for almond milks.

Pears have been shown in recent studies to improve insulin sensitivity in women, attributed to certain groups of flavonoids. Intake of these groups has been associated with decreased risk of type 2 diabetes in both women and men. The new analysis of the Nurses’ Health Study shows that among all fruits and vegetables when studied for their flavonoid content, apples and pears had the most consistent ability to lower diabetes risk.

Phytonutrients are where pears really stand out. The Baltimore Longitudinal Study on Aging with over 1600 people ages 62-69 years has shown apple/pear combo to have the second highest level of flavonols of all fruits and vegetables. This provides us with antioxidant and anti-inflammatory benefits.

Jay calls his Pear-Apple combo the Evening Regulator because pears and apples contain large amounts of pectin to keep your digestive system moving. Here’s the recipe:
1- Pear
2- Apples
