Have A Guava
Native to Mexico and Central Americas, Guava is a tropical fruit that has unique flavor, taste, and health-promoting qualities. Because of its high profile nutrients, it is often called “super-fruit.” The fruit is soft when ripe and its flesh varies in color depending up on the cultivar (white, pink, yellow, or red) Ripe guava have rich flavor with sweet-tart taste. Each fruit contains many tiny, semi-hard edible seeds. Because of its high pectin level, guavas are used to make candies, preserves and jams. Guava is low in calories and fats. It contains vitamin C, minerals and antioxidant poy-phenolic and flavonoid compounds that play a vital role in cancer prevention and anti-aging. It is also a good source of soluble dietary fiber, which helps protect from cancer-causing chemicals in colon. Guava is also a very rich source of potassium-more than other fruit like banana- that helps control heart rate and blood pressure.
