Did you know that aside from humans and animals, there are also king and queen of fruits? Yes, you read it right and the fruit I’m referring to as the “Queen of Fruits” is what we called “Guava” or also known as Psidium guajava which exists throughout Asian Countries, India, Northern South America, Central America and in Mexico.
Guava Fruits came from a small tree in the Myrtle family or called as Myrtaceae. The leaves of a Guava tree has also health benefits especially the Guava Leaf Extract which could treat diarrhea, help to control diabetes, improve heart and oral health and a lot more.
If Pineapple is the King, Guava is the Queen of Fruits.
You might wonder why Guava is known as the Queen of Fruits, that’s because there’s a crown-shaped opening found at the bottom of the fruit. And they said, there’s a legend story behind the fruit about the origin of why it wears a crown.
For those who are not familiar with Guava, it is a tropical fruit that is pear-shaped and its size is like an average-sized orange or apple. Its color depends to its type which varies from yellow to green (outside), white and pink to dark red (inside), but mostly, its outer color appears to be yellow-green. Aside from its shape and color, Guava has unique juicy taste and rich in flavor especially when it’s organic and you’ve eaten it raw. When you try to freshly pick it from its tree, you’ll also smell its intense sweet exquisite aroma and surely, you’ll love it.

Guava is a powerhouse of nutrients in which through a single bite, you can immediately absorb various nutrients such as Vitamin C, Vitamin A, Dietary Fiber, Lycopene, Potassium, B-Complex (Vitamin B-6, Niacin, Pantothenic acid, Vitamin E, Vitamin K, and more). Guava is also said to be abundant in minerals, antioxidant poly-phenolic, low in calories and fats, and it is also recognized to be a prevention of aging, infections, cancers and an immunity-booster.

Aside from health benefits I’ve mentioned above, Guava is also an effective remedy for diabetes, common cough and cold, diarrhea, dysentery, constipation, skin care, weight loss, scurvy, and high blood pressure.
Guava is good for those who has diabetes because according to Chinese medicine, the juice of the Guava fruit can reduce sugar levels and it’s rich in fiber content and has low glycemic index.
