In addition, guava’s high vitamin C content boosts immunity and keeps skin luminous. According to Half Your Plate, one medium guava contains 343% of your recommended daily vitamin C intake.

Guavas also contain folate, which improves digestion and blood pressure, says Healthline.

Together, all these nutrients help balance blood sugar, reduce cancer risk, fight aging, and more.

According to Medical News Today and Healthline, guava’s nutrients may reduce type 2 diabetes symptoms, improve heart health, facilitate weight loss, and cut cancer risk.

However, according to other studies, guava’s nutrients may even reduce flu risk and prevent the growth of cancer cells.
