Guava Fruit Health Benefits

Guava is very rich in astringents (compounds that make your gums feel tighter and fresher).  After you chew guava leaves, eat a raw guava, or use some guava-based toothpaste, your mouth feels healthier, and the astringent qualities also add substance to loose bowels and reduce symptoms of diarrhoea.

 

These astringents are alkaline in nature and have disinfectant and anti-bacterial properties, thus helping to cure dysentery by inhibiting microbial growth and removing extra mucus from the intestines.

 

Furthermore, other nutrients in guava such as vitamin-C, Carotenoids and potassium, strengthen and tone the digestive system while simultaneously disinfecting it.

 

Guava is one of the richest sources of dietary fiber in terms of fruit.

 

Its seeds, if ingested whole or chewed, serve as excellent laxatives.

 

These two properties of guava help the formation of healthy bowel movements, and aid the body in retaining water and thoroughly cleaning your intestines and excretory system.

 

It is said that constipation alone can lead to 72 different types of ailments, so any help with constipation is beneficial.

 

Your total health is undeniably affected by proper digestion, and more importantly, proper excretion.

 

Fresh fruit is a very rich source of potassium. It contains more potassium than other fruits like banana weight per weight.

 

Potassium is an important component of cell and body fluids that helps controlling heart rate and blood pressure.

 

Guavas are rich in Vitamin C, Vitamin A and antioxidants like lycopene and carotene which protect your skin from wrinkles and fine lines, thus making you look younger.

 

Old-age is a certainty in everyone’s life, and eating a guava every day can at least prolong the process.

 

The high content of vitamin A in guava plays an important role in maintaining the quality and health of eyesight, skin, teeth, bones and the mucus membranes. Guavas are not only delicious but nutritious too.
