Benefits of Guava
Cough and cold
Juice of raw and immature guavas or a decoction of guavaleaves is very helpful in relieving coughs and colds byreducing mucus, disinfecting the respiratory tract, throat and lungs, and inhibiting microbial activity with its astringent properties. Guava has one of the highest quantities of vitaminC and iron among fruits, and both are proven to be preventive against colds and viral infections. In some areas of India, roasted ripe guava is used as a remedy against extreme cases of cough, cold, and congestion.
