6 Benefits of Guava
Guavas trees are tropical trees originating in Central America.
Their fruits are oval with light green or yellow skin and contain edible seeds. What’s more, guava leaves are used as herbal tea and leaf extract as a supplement.
They’ve also been used in Medicine for Centuries.
What are the Potential Health Benefits?
Guava Leaf Tea is a traditional remedy for a range of health conditions. Research suggests that guava fruits and leaves may have a number of benefits.
1. People use guava leaf tea as a treatment for diarrhea in several countries, including India and China. In other countries, such as Mexico, people have traditionally used the flesh of the fruit to heal wounds.
2. Japanese Clinical Studies have approved guava leaves tea as one of the foods for specified health uses to help with the prevention and treatment of diabetes.
3. The compounds in the guava tea help regulate blood sugar levels after meals, by inhibiting the absorption of two types of sugars: sucrose and maltose.
4. Guava leaf tea inhibits several enzymes that convert carbohydrates in the digestive tract into glucose, potentially slowing its uptake into your blood.
5. Drinking guava tea regularly helps improve the quality of sleep.
6. Another way guava leaf tea (and fruit) has been used in traditional medicines is to aid in fertility and help with pregnancy. While studies haven’t concluded the truth in these claims, the nutrients in guava certainly offer two things pregnant women need, vitamin C and folate.
