Selling Points and Health Benefits:
Guava has long been enjoyed for its exotic and unique flavor, however it has also a powerhouse of health benefits for you to enjoy. The levels of vitamin C—roughly four times what’s found in an orange—help to boost the immune system. In addition, it has a plethora of antioxidants such as lycopene, quercetin, and other polyphenols which combat free radicals to lower risk of cancer and fight cell aging, while lowering LDL “bad” cholesterol and triglyceride levels.
Guavas are low on the glycemic index making them diabetes friendly, and their vast amount of dietary fiber treats constipation with great success. The vitamin A found in guava is beneficial for eyesight, and the folic acid is crucial in nervous system maintenance and fetal development. Guavas B3 and B6 vitamins—niacin and pyridoxine—improve circulation to the brain, and the levels of protein, vitamins, and fiber can actually encourage weight loss. Therefore, there’s no reason not to indulge in these spicy treats if you’re hunkering for a sweet fruit with a little kick.
