Guava also known as Amrood in Hindi is a crunchy, green fruit, loaded with health benefits. It is rich in Vitamin C, antioxidants, carotene, potassium and contains around 80 percent of water, which is helpful in keeping the body hydrated.

Guava is rich in folate and recent studies revealed that folate is beneficial for women with PCOS and folic acid lowers the risk of birth defects in foetus.

Guava contains potassium, which improves the balance of sodium and potassium in the body. Guava also helps in reducing the bad cholesterol and triglycerides levels thereby lowering the risk of heart disease.

As guava contains vitamin C, quercetin, lycopene and other polyphenols  that act as antioxidants, which fight the free radicals and the damage caused by them, in turn lowering the risk of cancer.
