Health benefits of the Pear ‘n’ Parsnip

 Pear juice is loaded with pectin, which is a soluble fibre that has been found to act like a gel in the intestine, trapping toxins and waste and sweeping them out of the system. Soluble fibre lowers cholesterol levels and regulate blood sugar levels.

 Parsnips are packed with vitamins C, calcium, magnesium, potassium and manganese.

 Mint is a magic little herb that is famous for relaxing your digestive tract. It’s also wonderful for freshening the breath.
