|Pears are full of pectin.|
Pears are wonderful if you think you need a little help moving things along in your bowels. And it's natural. Whenever I get grumpy or irritable, I throw a pear into my smoothie and by the end of the day I am back to my normal self. The same is true when used in juices.
I once made a juice for my mentor so she could see that fresh homemade juices can be quite tasty. Halfway home from her house, I suddenly remembered that I had put pear in the juice. I called her immediately and said, "No matter what, if you think you have to flatulate within 30-45 minutes of finishing your drink, do yourself a favor and go to the bathroom just in case." She just chuckled a little and said, "Oh, oooookay."
As soon as I arrived home about 30 minutes later, she called me and all she would say was, "Thank you so much for warning me!"
So, beware: If you have a pear in your juice, and your think you might have to flatulate within 30-45 minutes of finishing your juice, go to the bathroom just in case.
