Organic Asian Guavas are one of the most nutritious fruits compared to various types of fruits. It is higher in Vitamin C than citrus fruits (the edible rind contains a lot of it) and it contains appreciable amounts of Vitamin A as well. They are also a good source of iron and pectin, an enzyme used in making jams as well as promoting digestion.
The leaves and bark of the guava tree have a long history of use for medicinal purposes which are still employed today. Tea made from the leaves and/or bark have been used by many tribes to treat diarrhoea and dysentery and some tribes employ it for stomach upsets, vertigo and to regulate menstrual periods. In traditional medicine today, guava is still employed as a natural medicine.
