Health benefits of guavaSometime I feel that guava is a very neglected fruit for Indians. Nobody bothers about guava in front of mango, litchi, grapes, apple, oranges or pomegranates. However, this neglected fruit has various benefits. Some of these benefits are mentioned below. In future, I am planning to write a detailed article on various benefits of guava.
Guava's role in weight loss: Guava is very helpful for those who want to lose weight without compromising their intake of proteins, vitamins and fiber. Guava is very high in roughage and rich in vitamins, proteins and minerals, but it has no cholesterol and a low number of digestible carbohydrates. Raw guava also has less sugar as compared to apples, oranges, grapes, and other fruits. Adding a medium-sized guava to our lunch helps us to check the hunger for a long time. It can also help with weight gain in lean, thin people. This is probably due to its wealth of nutrients, which keep the metabolism regulates and helps to promote the proper absorption of nutrients.
Guava's role in controlling diabetes: An intake of guava can also help those patients who suffer from diabetes. The high level of dietary fiber in guava helps to regulate the absorption of sugar by the body, which decreases the chances of major spikes and drops in insulin and glucose in the body.

In addition, guava is also helpful to maintain good eyesight, prevent various types of cancer, resist scurvy, check dysentery and many other health-related problems.
