Guava, which scientifically known as Psidium Guajava is an evergreen shrub that hails from the myrtle family. It bears a fruit that is oval in shape and yellow to green in colour, the inner flesh is usually white, pink or red in colour with the presence of numerous yellowish seeds. It happens to be a very common fruit amongst all and is potentially rich in nutrients. Although, its origin is still not known, but it’s been known to grow native in parts of tropical America. It is usually grown in late spring, summer and early fall.
One should always look for a blemish-free and slightly soft when pressed, it should not be hard.
As there is no confirmed study to prove that guavas have side effects, but still anything that is overdone happens to implicate some side effects, hence if guava is consumed in excess, then it might lead to gas and bloating as there would be an increase in fibre, that certainly might lead to the aforesaid complication, therefore if there is an increase in fibre intake, then it is recommended to increase the intake of fluids to balance the proportion.(4) Likewise, if anyone is pregnant or lactating then she should consult the doctor before consuming the guava leaf extract.(5)
