Plus, like pomegranate, guava is packed with vitamin C, helping to boost immunity and keep your 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.
