Health benefits of eating guava regularly

If you've been ignoring guava for a long time, now is the moment to pay attention to this "miracle fruit." Continue reading to learn more about its numerous advantages.

When our forefathers advised us to eat guava every day, they were always correct. It is, after all, nutrient-dense and delicious to consume. It's no surprise it's referred to as the "queen of fruits." Many people like the peculiar flavour and texture of this unusual-looking fruit.

Guava has also been labelled as one of the top superfoods when it comes to health benefits. And we're confident that after learning about all of the benefits, you'll develop a taste for this fruit, even if you don't enjoy it now. So, what if I told you that a guava a day keeps the doctor away?

According to Healthline, here are some medical benefits of regular eating of guava:

1. Diabetes.

Guava has a low glycemic index, which means it won't spike your blood sugar levels. Furthermore, the substantial fibre content helps to keep blood sugar levels under control.

2. Heart disease.

Guava's high salt and potassium content helps to regulate blood pressure, which is especially beneficial for those who suffer from hypertension. Furthermore, the fruit includes healthy cholesterol, which helps to avoid heart disease.

3. Obesity and overweight.

Guava is a favourite among fitness experts because of its low-calorie and high-fibre content. This fruit not only curbs your hunger but also boosts your metabolism. When compared to other healthy fruits like apples and oranges, guava has a lower sugar content.

4. Menstrual pain.

Many women suffer from dysmenorrhea, which is characterised by severe menstrual symptoms such as stomach pains.

Guava leaf extract, on the other hand, has been shown to lower the severity of menstruation cramps.

In a research of 197 women with painful symptoms, it was discovered that ingesting 6 mg of guava leaf extract daily lowered pain severity. It seems to be more potent than certain pain relievers.
