The guava, a native of Mexico, Peru and Brazil is a decidedly ornamental plant and can be consumed in juice form, cut like a melon made into juices and jams. Regarding nutrition, the guava has a lot of vitamin A and vitamin C about 8 times greater than oranges (therefore has a strong antioxidant power and greatly enhances the immune system), provides a good amount of potassium and phosphorus and is good for diabetics, as its juice is said to have the ability to reduce blood sugar.
