20 Ultimate Health Benefits Of Guava

by Dr Janardhana Hebbar

Guavas are plants in the Myrtle family (Myrtaceae) genus Psidium. Health Benefits of Guava include eye care, brain health, immunity booster, cancer cure, skin care and many more.

The term “guava” appears to derive from the Arawak (indigenous peoples of the Caribbean) guayabo “guava tree”, via the Spanish guayaba. Another term for guavas is pera, derived from pear derived from Spanish or Portuguese common to regions around the western Indian Ocean. Amrood is another term used in Indian subcontinent and Middle East, possibly deriving from armoot meaning “pear” in Arabic and Turkish languages. In Egypt, it is called gawafa.

Classified as a berry by most botanists, each guava berry is covered by a rough green rind that turns yellow when ripe. The pulp inside occurs in colors of white, pink, or red with numerous tiny, semi-hard edible seeds, concentrated especially at its center. The fruit is soft when ripe with sweet musky aroma and creamy in texture. Ripe fruits have rich flavor with sweet-tart taste.

The early Spanish explorers of the 1500′s found Strawberry Guava, ‘Acca sellowiana O.,’ growing as a native tree in America, where they were firmly established from Mexico southward to Peru. They are native to Mexico, Central America, and northern South America. Guavas are now cultivated and naturalized throughout the tropics and subtropics in Africa, South Asia, Southeast Asia, the Caribbean, subtropical regions of North America, Hawaii, New Zealand, Australia and Spain.

Since young I quite like to eat Guava, especially eat with dried plum powder 🙂 One is because it is easy to get with cheap price. Can get at any fruit stalls or any market place.

  11. Fong on Aug 31, 2016 at 9:35 pm

    Nowadays, people are paying more attention to what is around us as supplements and medicine. I think many are scared of the side-effects of the chemicals in manufactured medications.

    And, guavas are delicious as well as having many benefits. I think this is a much better alternative. Anyway, we should have the mentality where we keep healthy and try to prevent medical problems rather than look for miracle cures.

    Thank you, Rinpoche for sharing these information about the lovely guava fruit, something that is very common in Malaysia.

  12. Sofi on Aug 9, 2016 at 6:53 am

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this interesting article. I am surprised to learn of the many health benefits of Guava. I love the juicy crunch of the Guava but had not really checked into its health benefits. What an added bonus!

    Thank you Rinpoche for you care and love in always sharing articles that helps us to keep healthy. May Rinpoche always remain with us for a very very long time in good health.

  15. Wan Wai Meng on May 27, 2016 at 1:20 am

    Eating guava the guava should be crunchy and slightly sweet at the same time. Glad to know there are so many benefits to guava, a friend from Ipoh told me that she made a drink of guava leaves to stop her diarrhea. Amazing fruit.

  16. Pastor Patsy on Feb 2, 2016 at 3:20 pm

    I love guava for its flavor and fragrance and am amazed that it has so many health benefits. It is indeed a powerhouse of nutrients and the good thing is that it is so easily available in Asian countries like Malaysia.

  17. Lucas Roth on Jan 19, 2016 at 7:35 pm

    I had no idea that this fruit is actually such a superfruit, it actually has miracle benefits packed into a small vessel of that fruit. We did a YAK Blogchat on this topic actually and it was a good discussion that I enjoyed very much. I took an interest in its brain, immunity system and absorption help. I say this because I think that is what I would see as most helpful to our lives, however there are so many more than those already amazing things that can help.

    I guess that is why I am always told to eat my fruits and vegetables, there is so much benefit that these things can bring to me. Thank you Rinpoche for sharing and this post is a very interesting one and I surely learned something.

  18. Stella Cheang on Dec 29, 2015 at 5:53 pm

    I am amazed by the benefits from a simple fruit that we can find in abundance in Malaysia. How fortunate we are!

    This article introduce a few benefits about Guava that I think most of us will need but are new to me; e.g.:
    – It promotes brain health
    – It regulates thyroid
    – It is a natural diabetic cure
    – It acts as nervous relaxant

    I think I will start adding Guava into my weekly grocery shopping list. 

    Thank You Rinpoche for sharing this article with us.

    Humbly, bowing down,
    Stella Cheang

  19. Edward Ooi on Dec 27, 2015 at 8:02 pm

    I never thought for a moment that Guavas are actually from America. I always thought of it as an unpopular fruit in Asia as not many people eat it. I am very surprised when I read that it is so well known and they have so many names.

    I am also very shock to read that there are so many benefits of eating Guavas. I personally do not like Guavas that much because it’s hard and sometimes bitter. I guess many things that taste bad is actually good for our health, just like bitter gourd I would say.

    After reading this article, I feel like Guava is like the most nutritious fruit. The one benefit that caught my attention is that Guavas are also high in antioxidants, not only that it is able to cure cancer, diabetes but it also helps with anti-aging. That is really awesome. Thank You Rinpoche for sharing this article, I have learnt many new facts from this article and I believe these facts will come in handy one day.

  20. Julien Roth on Dec 27, 2015 at 1:16 pm

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this article with us. I have always liked to read through these kind of articles about different foods 🙂

    When i was reading through the advantages, the thing that stood out to me and really caught by attention was that eating guavas actually cure diabetes. I had no idea that this was possible. I am sure that if i told any of my friends that it cures diabetes they wouldn’t believe me. Who knew a single fruit could have to many benefits?

    All these benefits just got me thinking, mother nature provides us with so many natural ways to heal and stay healthy, and yet all we do to mother nature is hurt her. The earth does so much for us, and all we do is damage it with our selfish human needs. This is sad. Lets pray that they future will be better 🙂

  21. Sarah Yap on Dec 27, 2015 at 5:16 am

    Love reading articles that promote great health and wellness! I didn’t know there were so many benefits from consuming a simple and delicious fruit. Looks like my palate choose the right fruit to like.

  22. shelly tai on Dec 24, 2015 at 9:26 pm

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this valuable information, is great for us because guava is easily get in Malaysia and is not pricy.

  23. Mingwen on Dec 24, 2015 at 5:21 pm

    Thank you, Rinpoche for sharing such beneficial blog post!

    Malaysia as one of the tropical countries where a long list of fruits are able to grow well on this land of peace. Some of us, including me, do not know their actual values in term of nutrients and price. There are types of fruit which able to  produce fruits all around the years regardless of the “season”.

    However, when we are able to obtain something easy, most of us would not appreciate it because we would need no worries to get supply when it is finished. Furthermore, in regards of people’s expectations toward what they are consuming and people started to be choosy on what they want instead of what they really need at this point.

    We shall appreciate what we have, good or bad.

    Thank you.

  24. Li Kheng on Dec 24, 2015 at 9:47 am

    Wow! It is no wonder that when I am abroad, my foreign friends would often buy guava when it is available in the market despite the exorbitant price! It basically gives us what we want: beauty, good health, long life, fertility (which I understand is a growing problem today).

    A guava a day keeps the good stuff coming our way!

  25. Pastor Shin on Dec 24, 2015 at 1:17 am

    Guava is one of the most popular fruits available at many fruit stalls in this part of the world where I live. Guava is relatively easy to grow, has attractive foliage with fluffy white flowers, and produces abundant sweet, juicy fruits.

    It has been hailed as one of the super fruits due to the numerous health benefits it offers. It indeed is a powerhouse of nutrients, such as vitamin C, lycopene, antioxidants, potassium and many more as listed in the article.

    What is amazing is that apart from the fruits. other parts of the guava plant is also beneficial! Guava plant leaves are best known as a natural pain reliever.

    The young leaves of the guava tree can be brewed to make a tea that’s been part of traditional medicine for centuries in Mexico and parts of South America. According to laboratory research published in 2008 in “Revista Do Instituto de Medicina Tropical de Sao Paulo”, extracts of guava leaves effectively killed types of bacteria that can cause infectious diarrhea.

    Definitely more reasons to consume guava, and maybe plant some guava in your backyard!

  26. Jutika Lam on Dec 23, 2015 at 10:00 pm

    I am really quite surprised that there are so many wonderful health benefits of the Guava fruit.

    It is quite unassuming to know that a not very well known fruit can have so many health benefits, especially benefits like aiding weight loss, curing diabetics and even cancer.

    This article by Dr Janardhana Hebbar is really beneficial and more people should read about these benefits as it could save them money on medication and could maybe be even more effective.

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing!

  27. JP on Dec 23, 2015 at 1:14 am

    With so many benefits, guava can be coined as a super food. It’s almost like eating multi-vitamins combined with anti-oxidants. All I was told, growing up, was to eat guava when constipated because it is high in fibre.

    Guava is a very common and popular fruit in Malaysia. We can find it everywhere in the stores and at coffee shops during lunch. In Malaysia, we usually add ground dried sour plums when eating guava for taste reasons.

    With so much health benefits, we should definitely eat more guava.

  28. Pastor Henry Ooi on Dec 22, 2015 at 10:33 pm

    It’s amazing that a simple looking fruit has so many health benefits. The guava trees grow well in tropical Malaysia and there’s the seedless guava which the fruit can be eaten without having to spit out the seeds. In Malay, it’s called ‘jambu.’

  29. KB Thapa on Dec 22, 2015 at 8:07 pm

    I know Rinpoche loves Guava now know the benift . Guava are a delicious fruit whose juice has, on occasion, whole guava can be a sweet snack that will make us feel like you’re in paradise even when you’re sitting in your cubicle. If the guava is soft very yum yum …

  30. Sharon Ong on Dec 22, 2015 at 4:24 pm

    Dear Rinpoche,

    Thank you for sharing the benefits of guavas. Now I have more reasons to munch on one of my fav fruits.

    Thank you with folded hands.

  31. Cynthia Ng on Dec 22, 2015 at 11:13 am

  32. Beatrix Ooi on Dec 21, 2015 at 3:30 am

    This article is definitely an eye opener, thank You very much for sharing it Rinpoche. Guava is one of my favourite fruits, I love it whether if it’s fresh or dried, they make very good snacks hehehe!

    I never knew that guavas have so many benefits, what’s most shocking is that it can actually help to cure cancer and diabetes, though it’s not 100 percent guaranteed because we all have different bodies and conditions, but I think that it’s worth the try since it brings us only benefits and nothing else harmful.

    Beautiful thangka of Mahasiddha Naropa and Niguma, the Lady of Illusion paints a thousand words. In this painting the great Tantric mahasiddha Naropa sits gazing up,together with Niguma a dakini and was one of the influential yoginis and Vajrayana teachers. Niguma is one of the two female founders of the Shangpa Kagyu school of Vajrayana Buddhism. A beautiful thangka depicted with the powerful dharma protector Dorje Shugden will be wonderful to have.

    Janguli is a Buddhist goddess who protects from snakes and poisons, worshiped in the ancient past. By nature Janguli is actually Avalokiteshvara, the Buddha of Compassion who will protects us against snakes but actually dissolving our anger. Our anger is the root cause for destruction of merits and causes us to stay in samsara longer. A beautiful thangka depicted with Dorje Shugden the Buddha of Wisdom, Manjushri will definitely wonderful to have in our home protecting us and helping us to clear obstacles in our spiritual path.

    The practice of Vajrayogini is especially popular in the Highest Yoga Tantra of the Kagyu, Sakya and Gelug schools. Her Tantra promises rebirth in her pure land known as Kechara Paradise. When Vajrayogini is portrayed in this appearance with the left hand raised and the two feet firmly planted she is commonly referred to as the Naro Khachodma. Red in colour with one face, three eyes and two hands the left holds aloft a white skullcup. As depicted with Dorje Shugden forms a beautiful and powerful thangka.

    We are so blessed hearing a sacred, holy recording of the two holy tutors of the Dalai Lama performing a Dorje Shugden kangsol (puja). Great masters HH Kyabje Ling Rinpoche and HH Kyabje Trijang Rinpoche chanting the powerful puja to Dorje Shugden. Both of them were the tutors of His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama. This is definitely has proven that HH Kyabje Ling Rinpoche had a close connection with Dorje Shugden. HH Kyabje Ling Rinpoche has even composed a combined prayer offering to propitiate the blessings of this enlightened Dharma Protector Dorje Shugden, which no one can denied. Both Kyabje Ling Rinpoche , Kyabje Trijang Rinpoche and many Highly attained lamas of Tibet did propitiate Dorje Shugden lamas of Tibet. That’s the truth which cannot be hidden. But HH Dalai Lama insists that Ling Rinpoche, his own tutor, never relied on Dorje Shugden at all. Interesting read, may more people know the truth and understand better of the Dorje Shugden controversy.
    Thank you Rinpoche and Pastor Khong Jean Ai for this wonderful sharing .

    Tsunami Memorial in Sri Lanka is a monument remembering the 35,000 people who lost their lives just in Sri Lanka during the 2004 tsunami. In loving memory of the 40,000 people who died in the tsunami and the thousands largest single rail disaster in world history. The powerful Sri Lanka tsunami-rail disaster occurred when a crowded passenger train was destroyed on a coastal railway in Sri Lanka by a tsunami. Built by Japanese Buddhist community to commemorate this tragedy, Sri Lanka has erected a Buddha Statue dedicated to everyone who lost their lives, as well as the people who survived. A beautiful place of sad memory . Having this Buddha statue built there will definitely plant the seeds of enlightenment for who visited this place and seeing is a blessing.

    Thank you for the sharing the Buddhist Tsunami Memorial in Sri Lanka. Very touching article, heart breaking to read and to see pictures of the Tsunami tragedy. It was Sri Lanka’s worst and biggest natural disaster in recorded history. Many people were killed and thousands lost their home and family.

    As we know horrify incident always remarks many unpleasant feelings and memories.
    Despite the widespread wreckage and the unfathomable lives claimed, there remains a sense of optimism in the country.

    Appreciation the people involved to build a Buddha statue to purify the mind, builds up the serenity within ones and motivates to overcome the negative emotions of fear, hence uplifting the mind and focusing the attention on the reality of the materialistic world. May Buddha bless and calm all those that passed away from the tsunami.

    Dorje Shugden is a protector that is karmically very close to us which enables him to help us with such effectiveness and speed. There are many similar testimonies which prove to us that this protector is very beneficial for us.
    Due to the power of Dorje Shugden , miracles happened and she is well after many offerings such as incense, light and pujas following Rinpoche’s advice.Thank you for this amazing miracle story of Dorje Shugden.

    Venerable Geshe Sopa-lah a learned-monk spoke from his heart feelings and thoughts about what happening around the Dorje Shugden controversy and Dalai Lama as well. Those years back in India Geshe-lah did helped in the many buildings in Gaden Shartse Monastery where our Lama helped in the funds. He paints the truth of his experience sharing what he knew and gave a few points of advice. A friend of our lama for over 20 years, Venerable Geshe Lobsang Sopa-lah visited Kechara Forest Retreat, Malaysia in 2016. Geshe Sopa-lah has been actively involved in the campaign against the Dorje Shugden ban since 1996. He is in fact blacklisted, ostracised and persecuted, family tides cut as he bravely spoke about ban and even attended the protests. Sadly all of his family have since cut communications with him. Geshe Lobsang Sopa-lah now lives in Vermont, USA ,serving HH Kyabje Trijang Chocktrul Rinpoche.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this wonderful sharing.

    Ooh dear could not imagine a well known man …James Jameson heir to the whiskey empire did such a cruel act. Well he might have his reason to do but I am sure the horrific incident will haunt him foe life. He was the grandson of the man whose signature appears on the whiskey bottles. Heartfelt reading what he did, bought an 11-year-old girl for the price of six handkerchiefs and gave her to a local chief where cannibalism existed at that time in Africa. He witnessed the most horribly sickening sight of the girl being dismembered piece by pieces , cooked and eaten without a particle remained, while he sketched the whole process. This is the most horrific, shocking story I came across.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this sad sharing.

    Everyone of us have the freedom of thought, conscience and religion. In this modern time I would not imagine such incident of religious liberty exist. In a school of Louisiana, USA, a teacher spoke against a Asian student CC of his religious beliefs in a number of ways. CC was berated, harassed by teachers, administrators and even to that extend of receiving calls to his house. CC ‘s parents could not tolerate anymore and decided to file a lawsuit and won the case. Religious freedom, should be allow to all. Freedom of religion requires not only freeing religion from undue government regulation and interference from any one.

    Surprise to know our colon contain of poison due to unbalance diet of food intake. It really true, our body is often conceded toxins as a result of an unhealthy food consumed. However i think it is best to keep a food journal correctly to maintain and track our food intake.

    It is really important to eliminate waste from your body every day to maintain a good lifestyle and stay healthy. Hoping to keep the simple ingredients in mind and help many to keep their colon healthy.

    Thank you very much for the article sharing a great fact that we need to take it

    A very good choice to place a Buddha statue there to bless the beings that are around that area. Many people had lost their lives during the tsunami in 2004 and I believe that area will be full of the spirits of the people that lost their lives during disaster.
    It good that Sri Lanka has since built and dedicated a Buddha statue for the deceased and to plant the seeds of enlightenment for all who visit and see it. Thank you for sharing nice article with us.

    Winston Churchill was a British politician, military officer and writer who did twice served as the prime minister of Great Britain. Churchill did helped to lead a successful Allied strategy with the U.S. and Soviet Union during World War II. I did not know of his dark side till this post. Winston Churchill was in fact a clear racist and a stubborn imperialist. To many historians Churchill was seen as at the most brutal and brutish end of the British imperialist spectrum. Churchill’s imperialism was motivated only by an altruistic desire to elevate the putatively lower races. Winston thinks only of the colour of their skin. He hate Indians recording to him they are a beastly people with a beastly religion. These are another side to Churchill’s politics and career that should not be forgotten amid the endless parade of eulogies.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this interesting sharing of this great statesman with a darker side behind.

    Thank you H.E. Gyara Rinpoche for spreading the Dorje Shugden practices to many thousands Tibetans in Tibet . H.E. Gyara Rinpoche an erudite scholar recently gave Dorje Shugden’s life entrustment initiation to thousands of monks and lay people in Yangting Dechen Ling Monastery. The Tibetan Leadership (CTA) has claimed that Dorje Shugden practice is a minor practice on many occasions. This is not true at all, looking at the pictures tells all. Thousands of Tibetans gathers at Yangting Dechen Ling Monastery, listening to Gyara Rinpoche’s teachings as well as the Guhyasamaja initiation clearly has proven it. He also gave commentary on Dorje Shugden’s qualities, history to strengthen the people’s faith in Dorje Shugden and explaining about the controversy.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this great news and may more people have knowledge and understanding of Dorje Shugden . May the ban on it be lifted soon.

The Unknown

The Known and unknown are both feared,
Known is being comfortable and stagnant,
The unknown may be growth and opportunities,
One shall never know if one fears the unknown more than the known.
Who says the unknown would be worse than the known?
But then again, the unknown is sometimes worse than the known. In the end nothing is known unless we endeavour,
So go pursue all the way with the unknown,
because all unknown with familiarity becomes the known.
~Tsem Rinpoche

  • She’s going to spend her whole life here without being able to move correctly. Like a machine. They are the slaves of the people and are viewed as a product. It’s immoral.

  • What the meat industry figured out is that you don't need healthy animals to make a profit.
    2 yearss ago
    What the meat industry figured out is that you don't need healthy animals to make a profit.
    Sick animals are more profitable... farms calculate how close to death they can keep animals without killing them. That's the business model. How quickly they can be made to grow, how tightly they can be packed, how much or how little can they eat, how sick they can get without dying... We live in a world in which it's conventional to treat an animal like a block of wood. ~ Jonathan Safran Foer
