Fruits are very essential to remain healthy and maintain a disease-free life. It is a proven fact that people who eat more fruits and vegetables as part of an overall healthy diet are likely to have a reduced risk of some chronic diseases.
Fruits provide nutrients vital for health and maintenance of your body. Most fruits are naturally low in fat, sodium, and calories and none have cholesterol. Furthermore, fruits are sources of many essential nutrients including potassium, dietary fibre, vitamin C, and folate.
Guava is one such fruit that has a large number of health benefits. A common tropical fruit, guava is native to Mexico, Central America, the Caribbean and northern South America. The entire fruit is a key ingredient in punch, and the juice is often used in culinary sauces, candies, dried snacks, fruit bars, and desserts.
Guava is rich in vitamin C, dietary fibre, and folic acid. Also, it is beneficial for losing weight. Here is a look at how guava helps you in shedding those extra kilos.
Weight loss: Guavas are weight-loss-friendly food. With only 37 calories in one fruit and 12% of your recommended daily fibre intake, they are a filling, low-calorie snack. They are also packed with proteins. Both protein and fibre take longer to digest and keep you full for a longer time. Further, the high fibre content helps you regulate your metabolism. Unripe guavas have far less sugar compared to other fruits like apples, oranges, or grapes. The fruit eaten in any form aids better bowel movement and enhances healthy digestion which further helps in weight loss.
