GUAVA Will Help To Weight Loss
The green and strawberry guava has been named a gold medallist in one survey that measured four nutrients—vitamin C, carotenoids, folate, potassium—plus fibre. The guava heads the list with a score of over 400, far greater than any other fruit. Watermelon comes second with less than half the value of guava.
There is no doubt that the vitamin C content of fresh guavas is excellent, with over 200mg per 100g, approx.four times that of oranges. The guava is the richest natural vitamin C food apart from the very hot red peppers—and how many of those can you eat in one day! If you are a smoker, you need to replenish the vitamin C every few hours, as each cigarette takes about 30mg of vitamin C out of the body. A box full of guavas every week might be the best advice till you quit. The contraceptive pill and antibiotics also deplete vitamin C. If you look at the computer screen, television or video, then extra vitamin C will be required just to prevent eyestrain. The lens of the eye is dependant on a regular supply of vitamin C, and that means at least twice daily. For smokers the need increases with every puff.

Keep your eyes open for guava season and treat your life to the most abundant supply of vitamin C that nature can provide.
Vitamin C is the anti-stress vitamin, mainly because it is stored and required by the adrenal glands in case of emergencies, a shock, unexpected noises or bad news. The adrenal glands produce a hormone, adrenaline, for digestion, glucose production, heart rate, the nervous system and conditions of stress, fear and excitement. Don’t miss out on all the excitement.
Guava also provide a fair amount of vitamin A (625 IU), nearly all in the form of lutein and zeaxanthin (5000 mcg), vital for protection from ultraviolet radiation, especially in the eyes.
Even one guava a day can give your eyes great protection, especially for the over fifties who view the computer or wide screen TV for hours. Guava is the tropical fruit to set your sights on!
